The Teaser Trailer For V/H/S Viral, AKA V/H/S 3, Has Arrived – Check It Out Here (With Story Details)!

Along with a couple of screen grabs …not all of them crystal clear, but the good ones flash by really fast and are hard to catch (we’ll see what we can do about getting more)!   It doesn’t have a ton of footage, but what it does have it enough the whet the appetite, though we could do without the torture porn-y looking shot or two. Also, don’t let the freeze frame for the trailer fool you; Tank, the poor, poor dog from “Alien Abduction Slumber Party” in the final segment from V/H/S 2 isn’t in this installment, they’re just showing a flurry of memorable moments from the first two flicks before they get into the new movie.  Check it out below!

Pretty sure after “Safe Haven” (and “A Ride In the Park” wasn’t too shabby, either) from V/H/S 2, we’re prepared for anything, but unless it gets 100% shitty reviews, we’re watching it one minute after midnight on the release date for VOD. Here’s the official, (and slightly different from the past two) plot description for trusty ole Magnet Releasing:

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), Justin Benson (Wrecked) and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition).

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.


Seriously, virtually ANYTHING could be happening here. It looked interestingly gory, so we grabbed it. Any guesses?

We’re sorry to say that we are not exactly blown away by the list of directors (though that was one of the better ABCs of Death segments Marcel Sarmiento was responsible for), but Radio SIlence’s final segment in the first V/H/S movie was the one that was a total fucking blast, so who knows? Also, they talk in the press release about “the evolution of the series,” which also makes us nervous. Think you got a pretty good, solid formula here guys, don’t ‘evolve’ it so much the wheels start to come off.

From the ‘Mexican death cult ritual’ segment, maybe?


Hopefully with four segments, they’ll keep things tight. We don’t have an exact release date yet, but we should pretty soon!
