“V/H/S Viral” brings the popular found-footage horror franchise into the modern era, while staying true to the anthology format established in the original films. The third installment features shorts written and directed by Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln, Marcel Sarmiento and Nacho Vigalondo. Previous films have featured a framing story featuring one or more characters watching VHS tapes. It was on these tapes that the short horror films played out, while a different frightening fate awaited the watcher. See video: New ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Trailer Is Just a Little Bit Odd The latest installment takes the concept online where there. »

In the interest of full disclosure I have worked with and am close with several of the creatives on V/H/S: Viral, so I hope you'll still trust me when I say that this film is indeed a worthy addition to the franchise. Each V/H/S film has their own tone. The first one focussed on straight-ahead horror that was shocking and dark. V/H/S/2 opened up the scope and specialized in grandiose set pieces. V/H/S: Viral focusses on showing you a good time. It's a lot of fun and moves fast and is surprisingly funny. The wraparound segment is also radically different from the first two films. Hit the jump to check out this gory red-band trailer that actually manages not to spoil too much. There's still plenty of carnage left to discover (you can also hit up the international trailer). The film was directed by Justin Benson, »

“Timecrimes” director Nacho Vigalondo, “The Apparition” filmmaker Todd Lincoln, “The Birds Of Anger” helmer Gregg Bishop, “Resolution” duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead and the rising horror moviemaker Marcel Sarmiento have something for your Halloween lootbag this year: a brand new entry in the "V/H/S" franchise. And it's neither for those with weak stomachs nor for the faint of heart. A fresh red band trailer has arrived for "V/H/S: Viral," and it promises no shortage of weird, disturbing, bloody and flat out bizarre stuff for horror heads. In an era of endless horror sequels, reboots and remakes, it's kinda nice to see some directors playing with the anthology format in order to tell new stories. And while that structure usually lends itself to uneven results, we suspect genre fans will find something to love within. "V/H/S: Viral" drops on VOD on October 23rd and in theatres on November 21st. »

Emerging Scream Queen Maika Monroe explains how she was filled with admiration after piecing together her expectations of the road that lay ahead with Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard for their latest genre picture The Guest. “I met Simon and Adam who are both such intriguing people – so bizarre and talented. Having seen You’re Next I had kind of put all the pieces together, and you could just tell that this was a special group, and this was going to be a special film that would be something different.”
In a special eight part feature ‘Inside the mind of…’ HeyUGuys pieces together a broad set of perspectives behind the work and contributions to genre cinema at this years FILM4 FrightFest. From rising star Maika Monroe, the genre young bloods Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard, Spain’s Nacho Vigalondo, Hatchet horror maestro Adam Green, and the seasoned Veteran John McNaughton, »
