Spanish horror sequel in which another outbreak of a deadly infectious virus strikes an unsuspecting group of civilians. It is Koldo (Diego Martin) and Clara (Leticia Dolera)'s wedding day. Everything goes well, with the happy couple revelling in their special day, until an elderly guest who had complained of being bitten by a dog earlier in the day keels over and appears to be dead. However, subsequent events reveal that a fate far worse than death has struck the guest when he awakes and savagely bites his wife, triggering a further outbreak of the rabies-like infection among the wedding party. Amidst the chaos that ensues, Clara and Koldo become separated from one another. Can they find each other and make their escape before one of them becomes infected with the horrifying virus spreading like wildfire through the group?

This departs from the first two films and in reality is a stand alone movie [although it plays a part in REC4]. The same plot techniques are in use, viewed through the lens camera work, quarantined by unknown forces outside, murdered, mutilated and terrorised by ‘infected’ guests, but with no knowledge of what the reasoning is.
The disc opens to five very long trailers and then enters main menu offering play, chapters, set up [Spanish 5.1 or 2.0, English subtitles on/off] and extras [preparing a bloody wedding, out-takes, deleted scenes]. One of the deleted scenes actually explains what happens to one group of survivors –something that’s a bit of a loose end when it comes to REC4.
REC3 has a somewhat slow start [especially with the trailers –lose a *], concentrating on the wedding and guests but it does set a relaxed atmosphere which highlights the panic and mayhem when it strikes. Much of the filming is normal camera work and is more a gore fest zombie affair, as the fast moving ‘inflicted’ now mostly shamble zombie–like as though the previous scripts have been forgotten and is somewhat contradictory [lose a *] However it is fast paced and very gory once the action kicks in and becomes an over the top madcap rom-com as the two try to find one another. This plays with your emotions more and changes direction more times than a corkscrew and if it was separated from REC, would undoubtedly be a ***** gore fest like Evil Dead, and that’s how I’m going to rate it as I really enjoyed the last 2/3rds [including the Spanish Quixote dry humour] and the ending is sad –in a clichéd OTT manner, but it’s not REC.
An interesting twist on the Rec story, the film commences with a typical cheesy wedding and the filmmakers did a great job in going from everyone having a good time to complete carnage. Although everyone won't agree, I thought this film was an improvement over the second instalment which was much the same as the first film and I felt unnecessary as it didn't advance the idea very far. However the idea that the virus was some supernatural experiment gone wrong, as introduced in Rec 2, was further advanced here and I felt it was a lazy way to try to explain the outbreak, and reduced the interest in the story.
However the Rec series is much better than your average cheapie zombie horror film and a great watch.
These zombies are semi-intelligent, semi-foot dragging, and respond to scripture spoken. Their faces are cover with indelible blood that stays on in a heavy down pour. The film genre has moved from a suspenseful hand held film to a campy bloody zombie slasher complete with the bride toting a chainsaw. Oh the things we do for love. I guess it is what you are into. "Rec" fans will surly hate it while fans of campy zombie films have another one for the marathon.
Parental Guide: F-bombs, implied sex scene, a distant nude scene plus some weird mirror horror nudity. And of course blood, and dismembered body parts approaching Troma style.
