Much more in the vein of Shaun of the Dead or Evil Dead II - both of which it slyly (and sometimes outright) references - than the previous pair of straight-forward horror films that've made up the [REC] series so far, [REC]3: Genesis is all the more fun for it. I'm certainly not knocking [REC] or [REC]2, both of which I find marvelously effective, but everything - from tone to shooting style - is up for grabs in this here third entry and it keeps the series fresh and vital right around the time that zombies are really beginning to feel beyond undead.
There's not really anything that will shake you to your core a la those fleeting glimpses of the girl in the attic in the first movie, or mess with your mind the way the revelation of these ghouls unholy nature did in the second. But you don't really care once the bride uses a chainsaw to cut her gown in half, you know? The characters are fun and it riffs on its setting of a destination wedding in smart ways - it is always the drunk uncle who starts the ball rolling, innit? And it nudges open the world of the movies ever so slightly, while at the same time making fun of itself for it. Seek this one out! (It's playing on demand right now.)
