Movie Review: Viral
But if you look at this film as an amateur student film, it doesn't feel nearly as bad. The actual 'look' of it was more along the lines of the grainy video that we've seen in OPEN WATER and THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Because the quality was about what you'd get from your grandpa's video camera, it gave the film a sense of realism, as if we were on this haunted boat with the rest of them. That is, until the crappy CG showed up, and the teenage girls begin screaming so hysterically that it edges into being ridiculous (and outright funny). Also, I always have to give props to flicks featuring chicks in bikinis (check), and chicks getting naked (double check). This was much appreciated, though I can't say it really 'improved' the flick as a whole.
So really, I have to judge this flick on the one thing that all movies should be judged (regardless of production size), and that is as on it's entertainment value. Was this entertaining? Only in the way a bad movie can be, where you spend most of the time laughing at the unintentionally funny dialog, over the top acting, it's complete randomness and 'what the f*ck' moments. Would I want to watch it again? Even if the cable was out, the rest of my DVD collection went up in flames and all the rental stores in America went out of business I wouldn't voluntarily watch this movie again.
Audio: 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound & Stereo 2.0. While I appreciated it being in 5.1, the overall low quality of the film didn't really merit it.
