V/H/S: Viral (2014) Review:

The first thing that you’ll notice after watching this third opus of the VHS franchise is that there are only three shorts instead of five in the first VHS, and four in VHS 2. If they were good, that wouldn’t be a problem, but since only one of them is, to me, worth watching, that makes pretty bad results.

Let’s start by the best one (by far), a short about a guy who builds a portal to a parallel world and immediately meets his alter-ego with whom he trades place for a few minutes. I won’t give out too much, but this one is really fucked up. The story is suspenseful and, with its cool camera shots, gives a really entertaining short story.

The two other shorts are difficult to talk about without criticizing. The first one, about a magician and its demoniac cape, is insipid and ends without a conclusion. The same goes for the third (and last) one, a video game-like video with stupid teens killing ghosts. This one does not make any sense and simply ends in the middle of the action. This one got me especially angry because of its lack of realism and cheap aspect.


These 3 shorts are linked together via a nonsensical central story… and I’m still wondering what it was about. In the end, all VHS: Viral felt like a music clip with its accumulation of short sequences without any logical story. A huge disappointment after what was a good first movie and an excellent sequel…. Bark!
