It’s much debated here, but V/H/S/2 was probably my favorite horror film of last year. That line up of directors was a horror junkies wet dream and they all did a damn good job. Sure, some segments were stronger than others (Wingards first segment wasn’t the most original, but still was fun!) and Gareth Evan’s Safe Haven was a shot-gun blast of horror! With a horror film this well received it’s no surprise that another sequel was coming. The biggest shocker is they waited for over a year to announce it! Well here we have it, the next title will be V/H/S – Viral and with a synopsis that sounds a bit generic and almost gimmicky to me.
SYNOPSIS: “fame-obsessed teens who unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.”
Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Nacho Vigalondo (the upcoming Open Windows), Marcel Sarmiento (The ABCs of Death), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Justin Benson (Resolution) and Aaron Moorhead (also Resolution) are all signed on as directors. Benson and Moorehead are two directors everyone should keep an eye one and I loved Vigalondo’s Timecrimes. So it seems the powers that be are sticking with the choosing directors who think outside the box. Worked great the last two times, let’s see if they can keep the trending going.
