VIRAL REVIEWED

“Viral” tries to make diseases outbreaks and slight zombie action interesting again. Watching these little worms torture a quarantined area shouldn’t be this interesting. But, a lot of that seems to be due to the Blumhouse light budget and the abilities of our two leads. I buy the sisterly relationship and their work to save each other makes sense. It also helps that we get high quality gore including a nice neck wound.

The film plays short and that’s good for the material. However, it feels more like a play than a film. When I think of similar kinds of tales working, my mind wanders to movies like “Bug”. I admire the ambition of this film, but it seems like it undercuts the potential of the film. Still, this film will have its supporters and I’d recommend checking it out.
