An official selection of the SXSW Film Festival, the latest instalment of the hit Spanish zombie movie series relocates the action to a lavish wedding where the guests - including the bride wielding a chainsaw - try to survive a terrifying outbreak of the undead!
“A fun, action-filled zombie flick that harbours some kick-ass gore and a few very funny moments…Highly recommended!” - Twitch
“An emotionally compelling horror film…you’ll find yourself rooting for the bride” - Brutal As Hell
“You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a gorgeous Spanish woman destroy devil zombies while wearing a bloody bridal gown with red thigh garter in full view!” - Fearnet
Official Selection - 5 International Film Festivals including SXSW
The third film in the venerated Spanish zombie outbreak franchise sees [REC] and [REC] 2 co-director Paco Plaza fly solo at the helm of this chronological prequel. Star-crossed lovers Koldo and Clara are celebrating the happiest day of their lives, their wedding day, with friends and family in an idyllic setting. As three cameras (two amateur, one professional) capture the happy moments and party atmosphere of the drunken reception, one guest seems a little more drunk than others - only it isn’t alcohol in his blood. Before you know it, all hell breaks loose, zombies are running amok, and Kolda and Clara will move heaven and earth to find each other amidst the chaos. It is fast, furious, gory, campy, and romantic, with tongue firmly in cheek, heart on sleeve, and sword and chainsaw handy. It is both faithful to and a wacky twist on the series, horror story and fairy tale, adding to an already cult classic mythology.
