Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights!
Along with showing the best of the best in older horror, my cohort Sebastian O’Brien and I try to snag a worthy new flick when we can. And we’re pretty tickled to be showing the extremely fun REC 3. Don’t fall into the VOD trap. This isn’t a movie to watch at home by yourself. This is an audience film through and through.
Save the date for Friday September 28th @ midnight.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero’s [REC] series has set the standard for “found footage” zombie horror, far outshining similar efforts by Hollywood and even zombie master George Romero himself — and [REC] 3: Genesis is the most giddy and playful entry of the series to date. The set-up is brilliant: a camera crew is filming a wedding when the zombie-cum-demon plague established in the former films erupts. The bride and groom are separated in the chaos, and the film tracks their crimson-soaked efforts to find each other in the sprawling, zombie-infested wedding hall. Part Evil Dead, part Four Weddings And A Funeral, [REC 3] is an all-out blast, with Plaza abandoning the restrictive first-person POV early on, letting the gruesome, gory events play out with the benefit of a “normal” camera view — and the results feel novel and fresh. This gorgeous film deserves to be seen on the big screen, where you can see every beautifully rendered dismemberment, and marvel at every dazzling head explosion. RSVP right away, because this is one wedding you’d be a fool to miss!

I feel like this is fairly obvious, yet it apparently could stand to be more obvious: This screening is happening in Los Angeles.
As always I am giving away some free tickets (each with a +1). To enter all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with REC in the subject line. Include your full name. I will only be contacting the winners.
