The title of this Argentinian horror film is a little misleading. The plot of Virtual Reality doesn’t really have anything to do with VR simulators or gaming. That’s ultimately a good thing because we’ve seen enough of those anyway.
Instead, Matias (Guillermo Berthold) is an arrogant horror film director who goes to extreme lengths to acquire a mysterious flash drive, which his “producer” promises will turn his latest slasher film, which has just wrapped, into a classic. When done editing, he invites the cast and crew to his home for the first screening. However, the movie has scenes no one remembers shooting, and when the killer - called “The Celtic” - is choking the “final girl” on-screen, the actress playing her, Guada (Vanesa Gonzalez), begins choking for real.
One by one, those in attendance die when their movie counterparts are murdered. But even after figuring that out, they aren’t able to shut-off the computer playing the film. Meanwhile, Matias himself has disappeared, and for a while, everyone appears helpless to do anything but watch the film to see who dies next. But that doesn’t stop them from tying-up Julian (Christian Sancho), the guy who played The Celtic…just in case.
