Bloody Before & After Teaser Posters for [REC] Prequel and Sequel

Back in May we heard about a forthcoming prequel and sequel in the [REC] horror franchise getting the greenlight. While the foreign films likely won't find a release here in the states immediately, plenty of genre fans are looking forward to both of the projects. The prequel, [REC] Genesis sees release in the franchise's home country of Spain in the fall of 2011 while the final sequel [REC] Apocalypse will hit the same time in 2012. Though we've yet to see trailers or even stills of the end for this franchise, we now have two bloody, official teaser posters that are simple yet effective in illustrating the bookend nature of the two new films.
Here's the teaser posters courtesy of our friends at Twitch (click images for larger versions):
Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero, who co-directed both [REC] and [REC] 2, are co-developing the prequel and sequel together, but then each will go solo for the directing gigs with Plaza helming Genesis and Balaguero taking Apocalypse. Genesis will explore the origins of the mutant virus that has turned people into zombies (which was only partially explained in [REC] 2) with co-writer Luis Berdejo returning back to write the prequel with Plaza. The writer has likely also worked on Apocalypse, whose plot details have not been revealed. Interested?

Best News I have heard in months 🙂 I cannot wait... [REC]2 was the best sequel i have ever seen to a movie series. It kept the horror going and was great and keeping you want to watch it through out the whole film. I think Im gonna fly to Spain just to see them haha (like that will ever happen) Personally [REC] series are my favorite Horror 🙂

I gotta say, I've seen both the original [REC] and the American remake Quarantine and I thought Quarantine was a lot better.

#3 it was better for you because illiteracy runs in your blood and the ability to read subtitles doesn't exist in your mind 🙂

REC was amazing. The sequel was even better. Although Quarantine was much better than I expected it definitely wasn't better than the original.
