A couple of weeks ago that totally insane red band trailer landed for VHS-Viral, the final found footage anthology in the found footage trilogy, and the trailer was off the wall mental. It is looking likely that the third entry just might be raising the bar once more after the much improved VHS2.
Now we have a green band trailer to show you, and yes it comes with a little less blood and violence, but even the editing of the nasty stuff can’t hide the fact that this is going to be one hell of a finish to the series. Check out the trailer below.
V/H/S: VIRAL features segments from directors Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Marcel Sarmiento (ABCs of Death segment “D is for Dogfight”), Gregg Bishop (The Birds of Anger, Dance of the Dead), Justin Benson (Wrecked, Resolution), and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution). Gary Binkow and Brad Miska produced for Collective Digital Studio and Bloody Disgusting, marking the third collaboration with Magnet on the V/H/S films.
V/H/S: VIRAL’s segments include 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 segments are tied together by the story of a group of fame-obsessed teens following a violent car chase in LA that unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.
“V/H/S: VIRAL has the strength of its predecessors and continues to break new ground in the genre,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “This installment features terrific work from some very talented genre filmmakers.”
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.
