For the third year in a row, the folks at Bloody Disgusting have wrangled up another gaggle of horror directors to create V/H/S: Viral. As a new entry into the dark found-footage anthology series, this new red band trailer ensures horror fans will receive the same twisted, gruesome, and bizarre short stories we’ve come to expect. Watch the NSFW red band trailer for V/H/S: Viral after the break.
Now I’m always weary when it comes to horror trailers because I don’t want to spoil any of the surprises for myself. And I particularly never like to watch red band trailers because the chances are even higher. But I just had to watch this trailer for V/H/S: Viral because this has been a terrible year for horror movies and I have come to expect a higher degree of execution from this franchise.
When I first encountered V/H/S I hated it. I walked out feeling disgusted and angry. And then as time passed by, the more I kept coming back to what I had seen and gained a new appreciation for what these sickos have accomplished. It’s horror unlike anything we’ve been privy too lately. These filmmakers are pushing the boundaries and developing some of the most disturbing short horror stories of our time. What they are able to make in less than 20 minutes each is more than most feature length directors have been doing in 90. You can
Here is the official synopsis for V/H/S: Viral courtesy of Magnet:
A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame-obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell-bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.
The roster of directors this time includes Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution), and Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl).
V/H/S: Viral will appear on VOD October 23 before it makes a limited release in theaters on November 21. You can watch both V/H/S and V/H/S/2 now on Netflix Instant Streaming.
