"Zombieland" and possibly "Shaun of the Dead" aside, this isn't a genre with a lot of life in it.

Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News

Like vampires, this genre is getting deadly.

Eric D. Snider

Offers some dark laughs, bloody kills, and moderate thrills.

New York Post

Plaza throws in more than enough ludicrous touches of his own to grab viewers by their arteries and never let go.

Tasha Robinson
AV Club

It's hard to maintain dread while the filmmakers are so obviously grinning at their own cleverness.

Paul Chambers
Movie Chambers

Well, bite me, if this movie didn't suck.

Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times

With slapstick smothering the scares, "[REC 3]" is further marred by a plot in which the muted Catholicism of its antecedents is turned up to full blast.

Andrew Schenker
Village Voice

Giddy shots of the undead slogging through a decimated party-scape materialize the decadence and instability of upper-crust family life, even as groom and (pregnant) bride prepare to give birth to another generation of the Spanish elite.

Jeff Beck

Like with the previous films, you can expect lots of blood and gruesome kills, but after a while, you come to the realization that the filmmakers aren't doing anything new with the series, turning this into a rather perfunctory exercise.

Generic, unoriginal splatter fest that is good for occasional jolts.

[Rec] 3: Genesis will appeal more to fans of grindhouse horror more so than fans of the first two [Rec] films. The reason for this is because director Paco… More
