V/H/S Viral – Trailer

Ich mag das V/H/S-Franchise ja sehr gerne, obwohl ich mit dem Found-Footage-Format meine Probleme habe. Es gibt da aber so zwei oder drei Beispiele, die ich für sehr gelungen halte (und damit meine ich nicht Blair Witch Project): Einmal die Superhero-Story Chronicle und eben die V/H/S-Reihe, nicht auch zuletzt deshalb, weil eine Anthologie-Filmreihe mit jungen Genre-Regisseuren als Format einigermaßen frisch ist. Diesmal hinter der Kamera: Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Marcel Sarmiento (Dead Girl), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Justin Benson und Aaron Moorhead (Resolution), 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.

"V/H/S: VIRAL has the strength of its predecessors and continues to break new ground in the genre," said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. "This installment features terrific work from some very talented genre filmmakers."

"We're really excited for audiences to experience the evolution of the VHS brand - and the evolution of male monster genitalia," said Binkow.
