Synopsis – Follows fame-obsessed teens who unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.
My Take – This epic conclusion to the anthology series [V/H/S (2012) & V/H/S 2 (2013)] is much more crazier & epic! I definitely enjoyed Viral MORE than I did with the previous two films.
As its predecessors, V/H/S Viral is formed by three found-footage stories, tied together by yet a fourth frame story, also filmed in a found-footage fashion. (Apparently there was supposed to be one more segment, directed by Todd Lincoln, but it was never filmed or it didn’t make the final cut) All the four stories have an innovative touch to them; they may start of a bit strange, but trust me you would be paralyzed with shock & awe the moment you realize where the story has lead to.
Compared to the last two outings this one is actually low on horror but nonetheless creeps you out. The directors & producers behind V/H/S: Viral have made sure the V/H/S series ended its run on a high note, instead of falling under its own success like most horror franchises do! Must watch for found footage & horror fans!!
Rated – R
Run Time – 97 minutes
