The New [REC] GENESIS Poster Can See You ...

A new poster for Paco Plaza's [REC] Genesis has arrived on the scene and it is, to put it mildly, rather good. Simple. Iconic. Very much in keeping with the franchise. And creep as all hell. Oh, yes please.

For those unfamiliar, here's how producers Filmax are describing this third entry in the [REC] saga:

The original [REC] crew are back, ready to submit their ensemble cast to another fight for survival against the zombie infection, this time to the backdrop of an original soundtrack.  This new chapter will see the film 'open up' by using a more traditional cinematographic style. However the film's roots have not been forgotten and viewers will still be immersed in the action, watching certain events unfold through the eye of the video camera.

The action in [REC]3 Genesis encompasses the events of the first two films, and after the sense of claustrophobia previously experienced, the action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight, giving the film an entirely fresh, yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building.

In a clever twist that draws together the plots of the first two movies, this third part of the saga also works as a decoder to uncover information hidden in the first two films and leaves the door open for the final instalment, the future [REC]4 Apocalypse.

Interesting to note in there that they are moving - at least to some degree - away from the moc doc style that the first film reinvigorated and that this now appears to be a sort of parallel story to the first two, telling the same events from a different perspective, rather than the straight up prequel that we had been expecting.
