nah, better keep it a duology
26 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was impressed by the sheer amount of fresh ideas in the first movie. When the second one came around I was skeptical at first but surprisingly it was even better than its predecessor in every way (V/H/S 2 is about my favorite horror movie of all time) So naturally I had no doubts that the 3rd movie would be fantastic. The trailer sure looked so...

But unfortunately V/H/S Viral feels rushed. I mean some individual stories are actually quite captivating. "Parallel Monsters" for example had a very unsettling and yet realistic atmosphere to it. "Dante the Great" also had an awesome premise although I fell like it could've been more.

But the rest was just uninspired and loose. Especially "Vicous Circles" felt like it had no consistency at all. Generally I like it if a film does not explain everything but here there is no explanation for anything. It just has a constant stream of events that connect only vaguely. Often time the pacing of the segments was just off which made it hard to get involved in the story.

But it wasn't just the storytelling it was also the overall audiovisual quality of the whole movie. There were some good practical effects but a lot of bad cgi that really stuck out and really killed the mood. While the first two installments really incorporated the found footage presentation in their cinematography, we only see this rarely in V/H/S Viral.

All in all with some more time spend in pre- and post-production V/H/S Viral would've been a much better experience.
