The V/H/S films certainly have created their own style of terror within the Horror genre and it wasn't too long ago that we found out that the third installment would be on its way soon. The new flick will be titled V/H/S: VIRAL and Magnet Releasing was able to acquire the US rights for the movie. V/H/S: VIRAL will contain segments from Nacho Vigalondo, Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop, Justin Benson and Todd Lincoln. The very first trailer for the film is now available and it is waiting for you down below.
"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."
Magnet is aiming for a fall release for V/H/S: VIRAL.
In other anthology style Horror news, Magnet Releasing once again delivers with the upcoming sequel to THE ABC'S OF DEATH, simply titled THE ABC'S OF DEATH 2. The idea is quite brilliant as it takes all 26 letters of the alphabet and visits each one with a short tale of Death which just happens to go hand in hand with said letter. Even more amazing is the fact that each segment has its own unique director.
THE ABC'S OF DEATH 2 is due out later on this year with established directors and some of the world’s most gifted emerging talent will make up the diverse roster of creative filmmakers that will showcase twenty six tales of mortality, beginning with the letter A and ending with the letter Z.
"This will be a celebration of death in all its forms. From the shocking and exotic through to the banal and droll. The spectrum of cause will run from the accidental through to murder most foul. It is up to each director to interpret the letter/word they are assigned."
Here is the full list of Directors for THE ABC'S OF DEATH 2:
Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado
Jen and Sylvia Soska
Juan Martinez Moreno
Julien Bustillo and Alexandre Maury
Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper
