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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

Just because a movie is subtitled doesn't mean it's any more imaginative or better crafted than domestic films.

Even when fully acknowledging its flaws and underdeveloped ideas, one can still find loads of fun rampaging through the film.

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

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

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

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.

An awesomely crazy survival-horror joyride.

Like vampires, this genre is getting deadly.

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.

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.

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.
