Welcome To the show! Hold onto your tickets V/H/S Viral has it’s first trailer which has been unleashed ahead of it’s preview at Cannes Film Festival Market and it looks like the chaos will keep us spooked once again.
As like many good things to enhance you have to move on and V/H/S Viral is moving away from the format it followed in the previous 2 films of a mysterious batch of video tapes revealing segments to Viral Segments. The third outing is now caught up with modern day technology with the story centred around a group of fame obsessed teens looking for their 15 minutes of fame and unwittingly they get stardom overnight and now are internet sensations.
There is a slightly similar theme to Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring obviously the film is an attack on those kids you think stardom is the answer to everything. The trailer is simply a tease and doesn’t reveal what structure they will be taking however there is enough visceral imagery that will keep fans of the series happy enough as things are a little under wraps in what we should expect.
V/H/S Viral director’s Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Nacho Vigalondo (Time Crimes), Marcel Sarmiento (Dead Girl), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead),Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead(Resolution). All will certainly deliver plenty of apocalyptic suicide cults, aliens, ghosts, jilted lovers, possessions and that’s what we expect from our favourite horror anthology!
V/H/S Viral has no UK&Irish distributor yet but don’t be surprise of Koch Media distribute the film once again, as for USA it will be Magnolia Pictures.Expect the film to arrive sometime in 2015.
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.
