“VHS2 is one of the best horror films Iu0026#39;ve seen in recent memory. It tightened the overlong editing of the first movie and added genuinely creepy moments. I was looking forward to watching VHS: Viral after seeing VHS2, because I thought theyu0026#39;d gotten a solid pattern down. But no.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNo, instead you get skateboarding teens looking u0026quot;totally radu0026quot; while fighting a group of cultists (seriously.) And then, after fending off the angry mob, the 15-year-old boys skate home.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVHS: Viral offers four stories: the magician story, the multi-universe story, the aforementioned skateboarding brats yarn, and a wraparound that ties all these vignettes together. These stories all stink except for u0026quot;Parallel Monsters,u0026quot; which is good enough to warrant its own film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you can, watch u0026quot;Parallel Monstersu0026quot; without wasting your time with the rest of this sequel.”
