When I reviewed the first entry in the V/H/S series, I didn't have a whole lot of nice things to say. Too long and too dumb, it felt like what you'd get if you gave cameras and a shoddy script to a bunch of smash-happy frat boys. V/H/S 2 (review) was a marked improvement, and featured segments from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto, Jason Eisener, and Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sanchez that suggested this anthology might actually be headed somewhere. V/H/S Viral, comprised of three shorts and a wraparound (a fourth short by Todd Lincoln has been excised from early screenings, and I'm not sure if or when it'll end up in a later version), is the third and latest in the series, an [Continued ...] »
V/H/S brought us stories from Ti West, Adam Wingard, Glen McQuaid, and Joe Swanberg, among others. V/H/S 2 gave us far superior films from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto, Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sanchez, Jason Eisener, Simon Barrett, and Adam Wingard (again). For the third entry of the franchise, V/H/S Viral delivers another mixed bag, with entries from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, Marcel Sarmiento, Nacho Vigalondo, Gregg Bishop, and Todd Lincoln, whose segment "Gorgeous Vortex" was cut from the film for mysterious reasons. The series' most challenging aspect remains its wrap-around segments, which serve to loosely link the stories together. For an anthology, one would assume that these would be among the strongest in the film; sadly, that's not the case. "Vicious Circles" features...

“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.

Magnet has released the red band trailer for V/H/S: Viral.
A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame—obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell—bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.

Magnet Releasing has released a bloody insane red-band trailer for V/H/S: Viral, which is the third film in the V/H/S horror anthology series. This has been such a fun horror franchise that I've enjoyed watching every year when Halloween rolls around. This trailer is definitely Nsfw, there's some pretty jacked up shit in it, but it looks like an awesome addition to the horror franchise!
The sequel 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). 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 »

“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. »

The film, which hits iTunes/VOD on October 23rd and limited theaters on November 21st via Magnet, features segments directed by Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (Resolution), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Gregg Bishop (Dance Of The Dead), Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl), and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition) with everything from Satanic cults to crazed ice cream trucks.

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.
