I’ve got a soft spot for the V/H/S movies. They’re a different kind of horror, one that has mastered the art of the jump-scare and have just enough gore to be nostalgic without resorting to torture porn. The sequel upped the ante, with even more chills and spills. Just ask the cinema staff at your local movie house about the various wet seats. Sequel Deux is out soon. And I’m already on the verge of crapping myself.
Fame-obsessed teens hell-bent on capturing the next viral video discover they are the stars of the latest internet sensation. V/H/S VIRAL is the third and most intense installment in the groundbreaking horror franchise from the world’s top genre filmmakers. V/H/S: VIRAL’s segments include the story of a deranged illusionist who obtains a magical object of great power, a homemade machine that opens a door to a parallel world, teenage skaters that unwillingly become targets of a Mexican death cult ritual, and a sinister, shadowy organization that is tracking a serial killer. The segments are tied together by the story of a group of fame-obsessed teens following a violent car chase in LA that unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.
Much like in the previous two films, V/H/S: Viral will sport several directors. Nacho “Extraterrestrial” Vigalondo, Marcel “ABCs of Death” Sarmiento, Gregg “The Birds of Anger” Bishop, Justin “Wrecked” Benson and Todd “The Apparition” Lincoln all take turns behind the camera. There’s no release date yet for the flick, but smart money would make this an October debut.
