    Synopsis


    V/H/S: Viral
    As the streets of Los Angeles overflow with camera-wielding gawkers seeking to capture images of a bizarre police pursuit, the same people who sought to exploit the suffering of others for amusement on the Internet become the stars of a gruesome viral video from which no one gets out alive. Directors Nacho Vigalondo, Marcel Sarmiento, Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, and Aaron Moorhead all contribute to this horror anthology from the warped minds that brought you V/H/S and V/H/S 2. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      As a horror film fanatic, I'm used to seeing some of the weirdest things on the screen. When I discovered the first V/H/S film in 2012, the level of weirdness was taken to a new level. The following year, V/H/S/2 bumped it up even higher. Then I found out about V/H/S Viral last year. It seems to me that this one was just thrown together in less than a few months just to release another entry and gain more money. The entire film differs greatly from the previous two that it's hard to classify this as an appropriate sequel. The film has a weak main segment that really adds nothing new to the series, so you can skip "Vicious Circles". For the first story, "Dante the Great" is at least enjoyable to watch for the story. The greatest flaw with this segment is that a fair amount of it is not in a found-footage perspective. Following Dante is "Parallel Monsters". This segment is somewhat forgettable due to the wackiness of the story and "scares". If you want to skip it, you won't be missing anything. Next comes "Bonestorm". This one tries to be the "Safe Haven" of the 3rd entry, but it ultimately fails in being scary. However, it is still a fun segment to watch for the thrill. Finally, there was one last segment that was not included until it was released on Bluray, "Gorgeous Vortex". After watching it, I can easily understand why it was cut. Not only is it completely off the wall, but it doesn't feel like a V/H/S segment at all. Overall, this film is a mess. There's no rhyme or reason to it and V/H/S fans are going to feel disappointed with it. If you're a horror movie fan or have at least seen the first two, check it out but be prepared to have it be a let down. Let's just hope that when and if they make a 4th film they can save the series from spiralling out of control.

      I love the V/H/S series of movies, so I purchased this one as well despite the bad reviews. I should have listened. This entry does not feel like a V/H/S movie, it feels more like a SyFy Channel made knock off. The wrap around story is underwhelming & unbelievable and the effects look cheap. I would not recommend buying this entry. If you are still curious, it is worth a rental & it is also on Netflix as of this writing.

      After watching the second movie of this trilogy, you would hope for the movies to get better as they progress. This was not the case. This movie was disappointing from opening credits to closing credits. If they make a fourth to this series, there is serious room for improvement.

      I cant understand all the hate for this movie yeah it wasnt the greatest installment but it had its moments. A lot of the segments were really good, my favorite was withe skater kids and the undead. if you are a fan of the first two you need to give this one a chance.

      Between this series and The ABCs of Death, you pretty much know that you are getting. Some really good, some really bad and others that are just unwatchable. Shame we can't just take the good segments of all three films and make one really good movie.

      V/H/S 2 was the best of the trilogy. This one was too weird in my opinion. The in between story didn't work and half of the short stories didn't work. Nothing stands out like Garth Evans short in V/H/S 2. I still recommend to watch.

      After I watched the first V/H/S, I was looking around the room at my friends to see their reactions. It was unanimous! We were dumbfounded and unsure of what we all saw. The second one was good too but this one pretty much was just Blah.

      I really enjoyed the movie. It wasn't very scary, but it had a lot of gory parts, and I personally felt all the stories were good. It is pretty different then the first two movies, but I still think it is a good solid movie.
