What will you be doing on October 23? Perhaps watching V/H/S Viral on VOD?Or do you prefer to wait to see it in the theatre? The film will have a limited theatrical run beginning November 21.
This entry into the V/H/S series brings us segments from Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, Spring) and Marcel Sarmiento (The ABC's of Death entry "D is for Dogfight"). Among these segments will be the story of an illusionist with a machine that can open doors to a parallel world, a mysterious organization tracking a serial killer, a group of skaters who become the targets of a Mexican death cult ritual and they will all be tied together with the story of a group of fame seeking teens who accidentally become the stars of the next viral video.
Having seen both of the prior entries in this series, I am less than enthused about this. While the concept is really great, there are too many things to take to task in these movies. Somebody please explain to me why there would be a VHS copy of a webcam conversation. Please.
Though a lot of these prior segments have come from people in horror that I normally find to be on top of their game, these movies just don't do it for me. Well, except for Safe Haven, which I think we can all agree should really be a full feature length movie. So, what I would love to know is how you feel about these movies. As an unashamed Wingard, Barrett, West and Evans fangirl I feel disappointed in myself for not loving all of these movies, but I just don't get it. Please, tell me what you love about the V/H/S series and why. Or are you just as confounded as I am?
