Magnet Releasing Collects “V/H/S: VIRAL”; Segments Revealed


Following their acquisition of both previous V/H/S films, it should be no surprise that Magnet Releasing continues the trend by acquiring V/H/S: VIRAL, according to The Wrap. Once again produced by The Collective, V/H/S: VIRAL offers found footage shorts from acclaimed genre directors Nacho Vigalondo, Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln and filmmaking duo Benson & Moorhead.

The Wrap reports:

“V/H/S: Viral” includes 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 Los Angeles that unwittingly become stars of the next internet sensation.

For those wondering when they’ll get a peek at V/H/S: VIRAL, you won’t have to wait too long, as Magnet is planning a fall 2014 release for the film.

UPDATE: Soon after the news broke, Magnet released the first poster and trailer for V/H/S: VIRAL. You can see both below!
