I'm back from my short absence with a positive review of the latest film in the V/H/S Franchise!  Chances are if you've stumbled upon this review you're already familiar with the series, if you're not they're essentially "found footage" anthology flicks; each has also managed to out do it's predecessor.  With V/H/S: Viral things are a bit different, rather than the "shot on video" vibe the first two films had, Viral focuses more on the internet age.  A theme inherently present in the third film's wraparound segment (titled Vicious Cycles).  With the 'Cycles we're following a man who's determined to become the next internet sensation, to become "viral" (ahem).
