VHS: Viral?
October 10, 2014 7:33 AM - Subscribe

I was able to see VHS: Viral last night, and I'm anxious to discuss it...

Should I wait until it drops on demand (on 10/23) to create a post for it? Or have enough others seen it at various festivals to post it now?

Another possibility: Could the horror club take it into account in the scheduling for the upcoming weeks?

P.S. A preview/warning: I was so-so on the first two VHS movies (as tends to be the case with all anthologies), but my thoughts on this third one are mostly negative.

There's another VHS? I didn't even know about it.

That can work. We can swap the recent and non-English weeks, so that VHS: Viral can go up the week of the 23rd. I've been wanting to include some very new movies, and one that is available to couch potatoes via on-demand sounds like a good way to do that.

Bam. Done. Post should be up shortly. Also announced horror club pick #18 which will be the original 2002 version of Ju-On (The Grudge).

Awesome, thanks! Looking forward to the post. I think that the variety of premises and quality within these movies can lead to hearty discussions, for those of us willing to give found footage the time of day.

I only saw the second one, and I'm pretty sure for me seeing a bunch of shorts in quick succession is not ideal for me with horror. I love horror movies but VHS 2 left me feeling kinda nauseous. Strangely enough I liked most of the stories, it just felt like too much for one sitting.
