The Fear Monger: More Michael Myers, More Hell House And More V/H/S
V/H/S Viral Will Complete The Anthology TrilogyWhile televised horror anthologies arenít quite as in fashion as they used to be, theatrical anthologies are everywhere. The most popular, if not the most acclaimed, of the bunch are V/H/S and the far more enjoyable V/H/S/2. Fans will be happy to know that a third entry is coming to complete the loosely related trilogy. V/H/S Viral, a co-production between The Collective and Bloody Disgusting, will feature segments centered on teens who attempt to gain fame by becoming Internet sensations. If this means we get to watch overbearingly annoying ego-hounds getting their lives upended by ghosts and murder, Iím all in.
An anthology is only as good as the filmmakers behind it, and V/H/S Viral will feature as talented a group of directors, as one might imagine. The most exciting of the bunch to me is Nacho Vigalondo, who made the excellent mindbender Timecrimes and most recently the stalker thriller Open Windows. Beyond him, the director list includes Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead) and Marcel Sarmiento, who directed both Dead Girl and the awesome short "D is for Dogfight" in that other anthology The ABCs of Death. Joining them for screenwriting duties is T.J. Cimfel (No Tell Motel) and Dave White. The filmís context-free first image can be seen above, with a signature pile of TVs in the background. Set your VCRs for "Anachronistic Internet Streaming" and get ready for V/H/S Viral later this year.
