The first V/H/S: Viral trailer has arrived for the third installment in the horror anthology series, as Magnet Releasing acquires U.S. rights to the pic.  This trailer is a nice introduction to V/H/S virgins, as it provides a brief recap of the first two anthology films before launching into a series of quick previews of the segments from Viral, most of which look sufficiently promising/terrifying.  Directors for Viral include Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Marcel Sarmiento (ABC’s of Death: D), Gregg Bishop (The Birds of Anger), and Justin Benson (Wrecked).

Hit the jump to watch the international trailer for V/H/S: Viral.  Magnet will release the film this fall.

Here’s a quick synopsis for V/H/S: Viral:

Fame-obsessed teens hell-bent on capturing the next viral video discover they are the stars of the latest internet sensation. V/H/S VIRAL is the third and most intense installment in the groundbreaking horror franchise from the world’s top genre filmmakers.

Here’s the full press release from Magnet:

New York (May 13, 2014) ­ The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that they have acquired US rights to V/H/S: VIRAL, the third installment of the popular horror anthology series. V/H/S: VIRAL features segments from directors Nacho Vigalondo (TimecrimesExtraterrestrial), Marcel Sarmiento (ABCs of Death segment “D is for Dogfight”), Gregg Bishop (The Birds of Anger), Justin Benson (Wrecked) and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition). Gary Binkow and Brad Miska produced for Collective Digital Studio and Bloody Disgusting, marking the third collaboration with Magnet on the V/H/S films.

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.

“V/H/S: VIRAL has the strength of its predecessors and continues to break new ground in the genre,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “This installment features terrific work from some very talented genre filmmakers.”

“We’re really excited for audiences to experience the evolution of the VHS brand – and the evolution of male monster genitalia,” said Binkow.

The deal was negotiated by Magnet SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley with Gary Binkow of Collective Digital Studio. Magnet is eyeing a fall release.
