Plaza throws in more than enough ludicrous touches of his own to grab viewers by their arteries and never let go.
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.
For all its gleeful limb-severing, offal-scoffing and chainsaw-wielding, this disco mirrorball of a movie scatters ideas in all directions, rather than focusing the spotlight on what counts - the scares.
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.
...a garden-variety zombie movie that boasts few attributes designed to separate it from its legion of competitors.
A bit short on original ideas, but at 81 minutes, it's difficult to say that it's too long. Some may feel that the humor betrays the mood of first two movies, and that dropping the reality style was a mistake, but I disagree.
Even when fully acknowledging its flaws and underdeveloped ideas, one can still find loads of fun rampaging through the film.
Beyond the basic idea and the few clever gems that spawn from it, [REC] 3 doesn't improve on the formula much.
Something of a disappointment, but serious genre fans and anyone who thrills to the idea of seeing cannibal zombies ruin a perfectly lovely wedding will check it out anyway
This thing has a pulse. It may be pushing blood through a gushing jugular but it's beating.
It's hard to maintain dread while the filmmakers are so obviously grinning at their own cleverness.
One of the best horror movies of the year. Granted it's been a crap year for the genre so far, but a compliment is still a compliment.
Plaza sends the franchise into yet another direction with this lean, scary zombie thriller, punctuating scenes with both humour and emotion
If you can't get enough of people having their heads sawn in half, this may entertain.
