[REC] 3 trailer leaves the apartment block

Indie horror hit joins the franchise club

The first of two more proposed [REC] sequels, [REC] 3: Génesis (that’s already too many different types of typography in one title), will be the first movie in the series so far to be helmed by only one of the original writer/director duo Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza.

While Plaza is working on 3, confusingly touted as both a sequel and a prequel, Balagueró is knuckling down on [REC]4: Apocalipsis which is reported to be bringing the saga to a close. Although with the duo having splintered off and the story clearly leaving the confines of the infected apartment block of the first two films, one cannot help but wonder if this former surprise hit is going to go on and on and endlessly on like Saw, Paranormal Activity, and anything else to dare to be good.
