“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.

“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. »

Running Time: 97 minutes.
Synopsis: Another set of found footage horror segments comes to life in V/H/S Viral. A strange ice-cream van is circling a neighbourhood, a magician has a cloak with demonic powers, two identical men from parallel universes open a gateway, and some skaters take on undead skeletons.
Found footage films and anthology pictures are usually a very mixed bag. The very nature of the anthology means you’re in for a mixed experience as to which individual features you prefer. The V/H/S series, for my money at least, has given us a pair of very strong films. Each one had moments which terrified me and also contained stories that were absolute classics and could have even sustained a full film by themselves. V/H/S »

V/H/S: Viral, 2014
Follows fame-obsessed teens who unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.
About 10 minutes into V/H/S: Viral, you’re suddenly struck by two thoughts. Not only is this the third entry into a series that has yet to produce a movie that isn’t abhorrent, but more worryingly it’s a series that people are willing to pay to watch. What is it about this horrible franchise that people gravitate too? However a more interesting question would be to ask what those people made of V/H/S: Viral as its a complete departure from the previous two movies to the point where it could be from a totally new series. It’s still rubbish, but it is different for the better. Sometimes.

This October is shaping up to be quite a month for horror buffs. Warner Bros. and New Line will be unveiling The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle, Universal will finally release blockbuster Dracula Untold, and the Jason Blum-produced Ouija will also be hitting screens. ABCs of Death 2 has been rumored to release around October 31st as well.

Maya Angelou, the esteemed writer of both poetry and prose, died on Wednesday. She was 86.
Maya Angelou Dies
Angelou died at her home in Winston-Salem, N.C., her literary agent, Helen Brann, told The New York Times. Though no official cause of death has been released, it’s been revealed that she suffered from heart trouble and had long been in poor health.
Angelou is perhaps best known for her book I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings (1969), which offered a look at her childhood growing up in the Jim Crow South in the lines of her lyrical prose. Angelou went on to publish six more memoirs – Gather Together in My Name, Singin’ and Swingin’ and Gettin’ Merry Like Christmas, The Heart of a Woman, All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes, A Song Flung Up to Heaven and Mom & Me & Mom.
As for her poetry, the poem she wrote »
I’ll admit, the title V/H/S Viral almost sounds like an off-shoot of the franchise that started in 2012. It really is V/H/S/3. There was some news that broke a few weeks ago that I never did get around to posting. Not sure if it was the beginning of a media blitz but it seems like everything has unfolded in the past few days. I’m kind of glad I sat on it so I could just combine everything in one post.
Check out the trailer, news about the acquisition/U.S. distribution & the poster below.
The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that they have acquired Us rights to V/H/S: Viral, the third installment of the popular horror anthology series.

Static, screaming and scenes of terror. It's the new teaser trailer for found-footage anthology sequel, V/H/S: Viral...
Like a cross between Tales Of The Unexpected and You've Been Framed, the V/H/S series has served up bite-sized chunks of shaky-cam fear and loathing since 2012.
These tales, we've learned, will take in a serial killer, portals leading to alternate worlds, death cults on the hunt for teen skaters. As you've probably guessed, the teaser trailer below contains some moments of bloodletting which could be considered not safe for work. You have been warned. »
"V/H/S: Viral," the third installment in the horror anthology franchise is expected to hit theaters over Halloween and Deadline has brought us its first trailer. The film is formatted as a found-footage horror, featuring a series of short segments from an array of directors including Nacho Vigalondo, Gregg Bishop and Todd Lincoln. Epic Pictures Group is introducing the title at Cannes. The "V/H/S" Trilogy has succeeded in a time of extreme popularity for low-budget horror, which has seen its contemporaries such as "Paranormal Activity" and "Saw" put out four and seven films respectively. "V/H/S: Viral" has five segments within the film, all shot in the same style distinctive to this genre. Based on the first Nsfw-looking trailer, this may be the most packed in the series, as it treats viewers to an ambush of iconic horror images ranging from blood in the shower to night vision-like visuals. »
