I like the first V/H/S movie as the concept was an interesting one. V/H/S 2 upped the ante and was really good. I had high hopes for V/H/S: Viral with names like Gregg Bishop involved, but it ended up being a cheap and bad mess.

Good: I did think that the first two segments had decent enough plots to where they could easily be made as feature length features. Dante the Magician had some fun moments and there were some campy moments where I would want to see as a full length movie. Nacho Vigalondo's segment is the best one with some nice twists and some crazy moments.

Bad: Unfortunately, the entire movie felt rushed and cheap. The wrap around segment fails to make any sense and it isn't entertaining at all along with obnoxious shaky cam. The first segment while it had some fun its too short and had some bad effects. The third segment is terrible with bad blood effects and obnoxious teenagers as the characters making it unbearable.

Overall, it's a bad film which sucks considering I liked the last two films. It feels rushed, not scary, none of the segments stand out, a lot of shaky cam, and it's not fun.
