The First Poster and Trailer for V/H/S: Viral Go Full Crazy
V/H/S: VIRAL is the upcoming third film in the horror anthology series with a debut trailer for you to check out. It puts a recap on the series so far and then goes all out with shots from the latest chapter. The movie features segments from directors Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Marcel Sarmiento (ABCs of Death segment “D is for Dogfight”), Gregg Bishop (The Birds of Anger), Justin Benson (Wrecked) and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition).
Good luck putting a story together from the trailer, so here’s the synopsis:
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.
If you’re a fan of the series then I’m sure you’re looking forward to this entry. For me though, I’m pretty tired of the found-footage horror scene. I couldn’t tell the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY movies apart if my life depended on it - now there’s a movie idea! It's not something I'm proud of, I enjoy messing my pants with fear as much as the next guy, more so perhaps. It's just a lot of these movies are not offering up anything new or exciting; it's the same old shtick, just in a different house or with creepier little kids.
On the bright side though, this poster is pretty sweet.
