‘Viral’ Trailer: This U.S. Town is Sick, Very Sick

viral - 2016 - movie

Two teenage sisters find themselves in one hell of a situation when a parasitic virus breaks out in their U.S. town.

That’s the premise for Viral, an upcoming horror-thriller starring Analeigh Tipton, Sofia Black-D’Elia and Michael Kelly. Take a look at the trailer below, which offers up some very familiar zombie/infection movie tropes, but teases a film that could be energetic enough to warrant a look.

Directed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the filmmaking duo behind the Catfish documentary, Paranormal Activity 3 & 4, and the upcoming thriller Nerve.

Viral will be hitting select U.S. cinemas on July 29, the same day it hits U.S. Digital HD. August 2 will mark the film’s U.S. DVD and On Demand release.

Synopsis for Viral:

Teenaged sisters Emma (Sofia Black-D’Elia) and Stacey (Analeigh Tipton) live a normal life, until their small suburban neighborhood is stricken with a mysterious parasitic virus. As the disease rapidly spreads throughout the town, the two band together to barricade themselves from infection. But it may already be too late – when the virus enters their home, the sisters are faced with an impossible choice: protect each other, or survive the virus.
