The Story Line:

The father was obliged to go and take her, trapping him while in the process. Stacey and Emma must now face with surviving and fending for themselves with the unknown virus.
The Writers View
Viral started out compelling and so interesting, but everyone else forgets that it goes after every cliché in a book which concerns the viral outbreak, zombies and the infected movies. Even with the main characters that are likable and then the events began in chaos and cause uproar.
This film surprise you with the thought that was well accomplished and the two main characters felt like they were actual sisters, and that was the top point in every movie how the relationship will unfold, they are total opposites, but still in this circumstance, they care for each other, and the duties of being weak and strong will then go back and forth.
Everything else here is fairly passable since it centers on what will happens when you cut off and the teens will create some dumb choices. There could have been a better, but still, the way it had delivered was pretty enjoyable. This movie is recommended, but be ready for some slow burn.
