The Infection Takes Final Hold this October with V/H/S VIRAL
I was a big fan of the first two V/H/S films, I was very excited to see a new anthology film take hold of the modern horror crowd as I've always been a big fan of Creepshow. While there were a lot of mixed emotions regarding V/H/S/2, I thought it was a superior film to the first one and that's pretty rare for sequels. Now, Bloody-Disgusting and Magnet Releasing are gearing up to give us the final installment in the found-footage/anthology trilogy, and it's been thusly dubbed V/H/S Viral.
While plot details are thin, the central plot "follows fame-obsessed teens who unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation." I suppose you could say that's a bit of a given, what with the title of this entry.
Slated for release on VOD platforms October 23, 2014 (and a theatrical roll-out on November 21st), the final installment will feature shorts from Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl), Nacho Vigalondo (Extraterrestrial), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead) and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition).
In terms of on-screen talent, we'll be seeing the likes of Blair Redford (The Day the Earth Stood Still), Amanda Baker (Lizzie) and Jessica Serfaty (Bat Romance).
