The VHS homevideo format may have gone to its grave years ago, but the horror series of the same name lives on with its third anthology, “V/H/S Viral,” delivering three playful yet thoroughly disposable experiments in short-form p.o.v. cinema. While the scares are in short supply, there’s a surfeit of macabre, tongue-in-cheek creativity to be found here, from mock docs to skate vids, sandwiched between a gonzo found-footage framing device in which cameraphone-savvy teens risk their lives to become the next viral sensation. As portmanteau films go, this Bloody Disgusting-backed, Magnolia-released offering of attention-deficit thrills seems ready-made for the video-on-demand generation.
Only the wraparound segments, dubbed “Vicious Circles” and directed by “Deadgirl” helmer Marcel Sarmiento, take the “viral video” idea seriously, even if none of the teen characters seems old enough to even remember the VHS format. Instead, as members of the digital generation, these »

The terms “Grindhouse” and “Exploitation” both get thrown around a tad bit too much these days. People seem to say that their film is a “throwback” to those slimy, gritty films of the ’70s, and the only thing their films have in common with those older films, is that fact that there are fake dust and scratches digitally inserted into their films to make them look gritty. Personally, I blame the Tarantino/Rodriguez double feature Grindhouse for this resurgence of movies trying their best to look like exploitation films. What many of the filmmakers making those films don’t realize though, is that added dust and scratches doesn’t recreate the fun and adventure of those balls out, gnarly films of the ’70s, that their has to be a genuine admiration and respect for the genre to make a successful homage to the revenge-actioners of way back when. »

V/H/S: Viral poster
It’s that time of year, when the latest entry into the popular V/H/S series gets ready to be unleashed onto horror fans.

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. »
Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy is officially a hit, and has been hailed as one of the company's best films by many a critic. Before its release, the film was considered Marvel's biggest risk, based on an obscure team of cosmic heroes little known among comic fans, let alone the general public.
In celebration of Guardians' success, here are some other lesser known superhero teams we would love to see on the big screen...
1. Doom Patrol
Introduced just three months before Marvel's own misfits, the X-Men, DC's team of superhero oddities are a different breed from that team of merry mutants. While X-Men frequently explored the themes of minorities and social acceptance, Doom Patrol has made a habit of embracing its strangeness.
With core members including Robotman - the brain of a critically injured racecar driver implanted in an artificial body - and Negative Man - possessed by »
Pretty Little Liars’ 100th episode saw the return of Caleb, Jenna and A in “Miss Me x100.”
Pretty Little Liars Recap
Ali (Sasha Pieterse) is ready to return to Rosewood High, but no one is ready to welcome her – even Hanna (Ashley Benson) is scared of becoming one of Ali’s puppets or dolls again. Travis (Luke Kleintank) tells her that she doesn’t have anything to worry about, who cares what everyone else thinks if she knows who she is?
While Hanna and Travis are doing their romantic astronomy homework, Aria (Lucy Hale) and Ezra (Ian Harding) are having a non-date night. They run into Ali on the sidewalk, talking to an unknown driver in a black SUV. She brushes it off, and says that she was just talking to one of her father’s employees, but they’re suspicious. Across the street, a bus pulls in and drops »
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. Now, we’re hearing that Magnet Releasing has thrown its hat in the ring by dating V/H/S Viral, the third and purportedly final installment its found-footage horror anthology series, for release on VOD platforms on October 23rd.
V/H/S Viral will also be getting a limited theatrical release on November 21st, which seems like a weird strategy by Magnet, but perhaps the flick will be good enough that fans will want to go back for more on the big screen? (Yeah, we somehow doubt that too.) Anyhow, the fact that it »

Apparently you crazy kids can’t get enough of the horror-on-tape franchise “VHS,” because the producers have already made a third one, this time featuring horror shorts by the likes of Nacho Vigalondo and Todd Lincoln. I’ll admit, I never saw the first two, mostly because I’m just not a big fan of found footage. They tend to give me a headache. Heck, even the later “Bourne” films, with their shaky cam, make me nauseous. Anyways. Check out the first trailer for “VHS: Viral,” aka “VHS 3.” Did that chick just get pulled into her chair? How the hell is that even possible? 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. The third go-round features »
Magnet Releasing have acquired the rights for Us distribution of upcoming anthology horror threequel 'V/H/S: Viral'. Filmmakers Todd Lincoln ('The Apparition'), Nacho Vigalondo ('Open Windows'), Marcel Sarmiento ('Deadgirl'), Gregg Bishop ('The Other Side'), Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead ('Resolution') will each be helming a segment. The segments in question will feature 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 wraparound/framing story will be based around a group of fame-obsessed teens following a violent car chase in La that unwittingly makes them become stars of the next internet sensation. »
While horror anthologies have recently become more commonplace, V/H/S really become the first surprise indie hit to kickstart the fad. Movies like The ABCs Of Death and The Theater Bizarre have since terrified with their own unique anthology ideas, but V/H/S made the ballsiest move of all by taking horror’s most overplayed subgenre – found footage – and turning it into a spooky centerpiece. Despite my qualms, I still found V/H/S ripe with positives, giving directors a gleeful genre playground to run about freely – and V/H/S/2 only upped the ante.
So if V/H/S opened the door, and V/H/S/2 spread the disease, how could a third film possibly get any worse? I’ll tell you – the videos can go viral.
Aptly titled V/H/S Viral, today brings the first glimpses of action from what’s being called the last »

Hot on the heels of the news that Magnet/Magnolia Pictures will be handling the release of V/H/S/ Viral in the Us, we now get our first look at the film via the just released sales trailer. The third installment involves tales of a deranged illusionist, a homemade machine that opens a door to a parallel world, teen skaters involved in a Mexican death ritual, and a sinister organization tracking a serial killer. Enjoy.
The new film sees vignettes directed by Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl), Greg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution).
No date has been set, but expect V/H/S/ Viral to hit theaters this fall.

I've really enjoyed watching the V/H/S horror anthology film series, and today the third film in the franchise was announced. It will be called V/H/S Viral, and it will focus on "fame-obsessed teens who unwittingly become stars of the next Internet sensation."
As for the list of directors coming on board to direct the films in this installment, we have Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), and Resolution duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.
This is another great list of directors, and it will be cool to see what insanity they bring to the anthology. As far as casting goes so far the movie stars Emilia Zoryan, Justin Welborn and Emmy Argo. The photo above gives you a first look at them in the film.
