But when the disease starts to infect people they know, the girls, together with their neighbor Evan (Emma's secret crush), barricade themselves into their home.

Reviews
Mild teen zombie flick
During the intro credits we lean there's some kind of viral outbreak. Then we meet sweet high-schooler Emma. Her sister Stacey is something of a pain. Their dad teaches biology at their school. The mom is out of town, but there may be some marriage problems.

It's not long before the infection spreads to their small California town. Emma's best friend of course the first to fall ill. The infected appear dead but then reawaken and spit/vomit in the faces of others, that's how the disease spreads.

Authorities impose a curfew but what do the stupid kids do but go to a party. Of course eventually a zombie crashes the party and infects most people including Stacey, who of course doesn't tell anyone. Once Emma finds out she does research and decides she can cure Stacey. Because it turns out the infection isn't virus-related but stems from a multicellular parasite. So all she has to do is remove the parasite which nests itself in the back of the neck. The dad by then is long gone because he's stuck on the other side of the quarantine. The kids also try to drive through the military blockade, which doesn't quite work. Then there are forced evacuations but of course Emma can't leave her zombie sister. Eventually authorities step up their measures and the kids will have to find a way to survive.

Viral comes across as a mild PG-13 teen zombie drama. But it's rated R for some reason. It's not much of a horror movie either as there aren't a whole lot of zombie attacks. The movie focuses nearly 100% of the time on the Emma character. Good thing that Sofia Black is lovely. But it doesn't make for a particularly exciting movie because there is no other perspective. At least the interaction between the two sisters seems real and is very entertaining. Not sure why it took 2 directors to direct this when there is no other vantage point but seeing what Emma is doing. Overall, Viral is an alright movie for teens that could have been much better had they taken advantage of the R rating.

Yet another epidemic that's about to wipe out the complete global population. It wasn't so bad though!
"There's something going around that's making people sick. Most are now speculating that it's parasitic."

Oh no, again another zombie movie? Or is it the umpteenth film about the end of the world thanks to a fast spreading epidemic? "You know what?" they thought at Blumhouse Production. "Lets just mix together those two worn-out horror genres". The result is "Viral". And I have to admit, the result isn't so bad. It certainly won't compete for the price of best horror. And it won't leave an everlasting impression. But because of the convincing performances and the growing tension, this movie managed to captivate me.

Emma Drakeford (Sofia Black-D'Elia) is a young, shy student who just moved from Berkeley to Shadow Canyon with her father Michael (Michael Kelly) and the rather rebellious sister Stacey (Analeigh Tipton). Apart from the everyday events in this secluded town and the worries that occur at school, there isn't much happening there. The rest of the world, however, isn't doing so well. According to the media, there's an epidemic spreading alarmingly fast. Apparently this isn't something the two Drakeford sisters worry about. Emma struggles with her feelings for Evan (Travis Tope), while Stacey tries to keep her boyfriend CJ (Machine Gun Kelly) under control. However, when their neighborhood is put under quarantine and they are being attacked by infected fellow students, who want to pass the infection by vomiting blood into someones face, they realize that the situation is getting more threatening.

First of all, a petty side note about the title of this film. You can safely call this a somewhat misplaced and misleading title. Perhaps it's fashionable to use this term, since everything is going "viral" on social networks. But this infection which is wreaking havoc in the US, has nothing to do with viruses or viral infections. It's a parasite. During the media reports this is cited repeatedly. Even Michael Drakeford, biology teacher at Emma's school, talks about it in one of his classes with tasty pictures as illustration. Are you afraid there'll be sickening images full of wriggling meat maggots? Don't worry because that won't be the case.

And that's really the only disappointing element in "Viral". As a horror, where a parasite threatens to wipe out an entire population and infected slowly turning into blood vomiting absurdities with superhuman powers, it's all quite ordinary portrayed. No bloody scenes. Most of these horrific situations are handled off-screen. Is this a budgetary decision? Or a deliberate decision so the film is more accessible to a wider audience?

The end result is an exciting but also soft horror, with a teenage love and sisterly love as a major central theme. But the performances are really credible, the shootings look exquisite and there was even an interesting story. Sofia Black-D'Elia plays by far the most striking character and her fragility and vulnerability look very natural and believable. Analeigh Tipton is completely the opposite of her sister. Not exactly someone who sticks to the rules. And a real bully towards Emma sometimes. But above all, she turns out to be a loving sister. These successful performances combined with the better camera work, makes this film a must see.

Ugh...
This movie angered me because it had potential. then the characters had to go and do things like not arm themselves with more weapons. One pistol when they had the opportunity to pick up an extra gun towards the end? No melee weapons? No fortifying of the house? Block the windows? We wouldn't want to do that, then we might live longer. It's pretty obvious what's going on but other than finding dad's gun they do nothing to protect themselves.

Ugh... just ugh...

If you like zombie or "world falling apart" movies, chances are you will like this movie!
Unlike pretty much every zombie movie ever this movie actually explores the one way that zombie like behavior could genuinely happen, through a virus or parasite affecting basic behavior(rabies for instance cause the infected to become hygrophobic and afraid of water).

So far this is the best Zombie movie I have seen, not from an action or survivalist perspective but as far as story, concept and execution is concerned it is heads and tails above anything else I have seen to date.

If you are fed up with zombie movies being more splatter and low brow than actually story line you will probably find this movie to be an intelligent breath of fresh air brought to the genre.

That's what sisters do
The film starts out with an oriental virus and then shifts to the school world of Stacey (Analeigh Tipton) and her sister Emma (Sofia Black-D'Elia). Mom and Dad are out of town when the CDC quarantine sets in and the area goes under marshal law. The sisters stick together through thick and thin.

The acting was acceptable with a decent story line and good special effects in that one scene, however the film was weighed down with a lot of no action scenes. Do not read IMDb description unless you want a plot spoiler.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

If you are pro horror movies fanatic, i guess you felt OK and bored.
i watch this late at night 12:00am so can felt the horror within this movie. Like me love thrill, adrenaline scary horror scene and disgusting feeling watching it. This movie is for newbie kids or youngster felt chill and terrific about pandemic virus outbreak. OK, common say zombie outbreak. For me, i watch and surf internet. This movie really tell a lot people natural behavior really stubborn and headstrong and naive and no brain and selfies. After watching tons of pandemic virus or zombie outbreak this movie bring chill and teach human kind stay alert and stay safe and always backup and have survivor instinct. The main character please next time act more realistic that all.

I enjoined the film, it's OK.
So there's a virus that has been spreading throughout the world and it finally comes to America via a small town in California.

It was a good movie, it could have been better as it was slowed paced and stretched out. Feels like they were trying to get 90mins for something that could have been done under and hour.

Viral spends a lot of time trying to make us believe that something like this could happen, by keeping the whole thing very subtle. I did like their efforts when it came to parts when America was watching as China went through it. Then they altered what sounded like an actual Obama speech to make it feel real.

Analeigh Tipton was a personal favorite for me in the film. I think she's cute so it's my own personal star power that gets me into the seat.

And now that rapper Machine Gun Kelly is doing movies playing mostly himself or guys similar to him. His "character" is that tall skinny tattooed white boy that all the suburban girls go for in order to make dads angry, but I liked him in the movie. The role he played in the film Nerve was a lot better for him. This is more proving that he can act (sort of)

Showing the monster in this movie turned out to be pretty corny. They have these scenes in which the main characters are poking around an infected's neck trying to figure out a way to remove the parasite, which gives you the Hebe geebees, cause it does look like something nasty you could find on your own body, and when we see the thing, it's not that it was not impressive and horrifying...at first, but it gets corny.

Overall, the movie was a quiet run around, that is interesting while your watching it, but leaves you with nothing afterwards.

How slow can you go...
I wanted to give this one star, but I actually have nothing against the special effects, so I added another star.

Yes, so the effects were believable, the rest of this movie - not so much. I think this might be the slowest paced horror movie I have ever seen. What a drag to watch. And I honestly think this had so much potential.

The acting wasn't all that bad, but most of the time I didn't believe the characters. You don't get to form any connection with this story.

I went in not knowing what to expect. I haven't even seen the trailer. I checked out the trailer afterwards and man, I was grateful I didn't go watch this on account of the trailer. Because the trailer is rather good and I think I would have felt even more cheated by this film, if I went in with any expectations. Wish the whole movie followed the pace of the trailer.

There was one thing that really stood out though (and unfortunately it's not a good thing), but it's like the director or cinematographer had a love affair with the slow pan. A pan is not a bad thing, but it gets in the way if that's the only thing you notice instead of it subtly adding to context or story.

This movie really gave me the sense of lazy film making. There is absolutely no suspense build up and there was maybe one "edge of your seat" moment. It had quite a few scares, but once again, lazy and unfortunately poorly executed, scares. I mostly flipped out of my seat because of sudden big crashes and overbearing noises to add scares. But I really feel cheated by these techniques. Scream is a good movie to teach you all about creating some good scary moments. And I am Legend, knows how to build up some good tension. Viral, however, lacks the "scary" and lacks the "tension".

Cute cliché.
Is it that bad? No. Is it worth your time? Most likely no again. Is it an avoid at all cost. Strike 3, and no again.

So, someone out there decided that there is room for yet another zombie movie. Originality dodged the bullet so we had all the typical moves possible, with some, kinda, perhaps, more rarely used elements, that sadly make for a thin and predictable plot. There are no moments during this movie when you'll have no idea what's about to happen.

It's just out there, every next scene being prepared and previewed in you mind easily 5 minutes before it actually hits the screen. So because of that, there is not much to do with this. I suggest you try something like Hide per example. I actually loved that one.

Cheers!

"Average movie with a great potential in the script but executed poorly"
It starts with a young girl who is having a good family consisting of a sister and a dad with her mom who is abroad. So one day an epidemic breaks out and all the people are getting infected will this family survive?

Story vise it had a lot of potential but it failed to execute it properly, the concept was good but it did not hit the right notes. Acting vise they did a good job but they were let down by the script. Was expecting many scenarios in this movie till the end but nothing and got me disappointed.

No I would not recommend this movie to anyone. Am giving an average rating for the concept of this movie.

Notable Acting

Sofia Black famous for her acting in the movies Project almanac and many more.

Analeigh Tipton famous for her acting in movies like crazy stupid love, warm bodies, lucy and many more.

My Rating 6/10
