Plot – Spoilers:
The third part in the V/H/S trilogy focuses on the lust for fame and escapism from a mundane world. While some characters desire instant viral fame, others just want to step out of the surroundings they find themselves pinned to.
The running narrative here is that of a young couple where the guy is obsessed with recording his girlfriend and anything that he believes will break the internet. So when a cop pursuit enters his neighborhood, he runs out into the streets hoping to capture something viral. Instead he finds himself forced to join the pursuit as strange video calls appear on people’s phones affecting and turning them zombie-like.
The film shorts here include a magician who gets his powers from a cloak that demands human sacrifice, a bunch of skateboarders who encounter a satanic cult in Mexico and one about an inventor who creates a machine that opens up a parallel identical version of himself with one major difference – what’s wrong here is right there.
i liked the overall story, the shorts were a meh but at least it wasnt zombies like VHS2
You know, it’s sad to witness the decline of what was once a great idea. The first one was very well done. The stories were captivating and it was well produced. The second one was… meh. But this one… the third… was totally lame.

seriously fucking lame
the skateboard one is so fuckin cringee, gay and annoying
Not bad, something was actually interesting
