As expected, the first trailer for the third V/H/S offering—V/H/S: Viral—is fueled by plenty of the red stuff and a hefty dose of insanity as it offers a quick look at each of the new segments in the film. Time will tell with this one, folks, but so far I really dig what I see here. My only hope is that the trailer didn’t spoil all the best scares because the true strength of these films lies with the level of mystery that you have going into them. That being said, the trailer is absolutely fantastic and exactly what you would expect from the franchise. Watch it below and see what you think!
Here’s what each segment will focus on:
The segments in V/H/S: Viral 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.
V/H/S: Viral will feature segments from Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl), Gregg Bishop (The Other Side), Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution).
