The second VHS movie was more of a mixed bag than the first, in the best possible sense. It was less consistently silly, less consistently sexist and less consistently boring. Indeed, at least two of the sections in VHS 2 actually worked – Gareth Evans & Timo Tjahjanto’s Safe Haven was the standout, Eduardo Sánchez and Gregg Hale’s Ride in the Park ticked off a whole list of “Go Pro zombie movie” ideas in one brief short.
I’m hoping that film three, the unfortunately titled VHS Viral, goes back to being predictable, just in the best sense of the word. Here’s the first trailer ahead of the film’s appearance in the Cannes marketplace.
Among the directors this time are Todd Lincoln, Nacho Vigalondo, Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop , Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. There’s some real talent there.
