V/H/S: Viral Invites You into a Magical Realm of Runaway Ice Cream Trucks and Undead Terror

V/H/S: Viral has recently debuted at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. So, a few reviews are beginning to spill out, from the film's festival run and they are mostly positive. This horror anthology, which includes three unique stories and a wraparound, has a Red Band trailer available for fans. The clip shows a preview of each of the stories, which include encounters with the undead, a body swap and some magic. Some of these elements can be seen in the official trailer, below. As well, the cast includes many stars and starlettes, such as: Patrick Lawrie, Emmy Argo, Heather Hayes, Jessica Luza, John Curran and Justin Welborn. The terrifying trailer awaits past the break.

For more on the plot, one of the stories involves a runaway ice cream truck. Police are in hot pursuit as one person is dragged from behind the vehicle. Fans can see some of that action in the trailer. Also, another story involves several skateboarders on their way to Mexico. Instead of tequila and tacos, this group meets up with the skeletal undead. Film fans can see the skaters battling with these reapers in the clip, as well.
