First Official Teaser for S-VHS Promises Even More Found Footage

I wasn’t a fan of the 2012 found footage flick “V/H/S.” While others were quick to toss the film into their Top 10 lists for the year, I thought it was among the worst. This makes me think that maybe my finger has slipped off the pulse of horror as of late. After all, very few people seemed to find the film boring, bland, and uninspired.

And while there are a ton of badass directors attached to “S-VHS,” I still can’t muster up any excitement. The involvement of both Gareth Evans and Jason Eisener doesn’t change anything, either. Instead of watching the sequel and then writing a cruddy review filled with snobby posturing from a jaded genre fan, I think I’ll just leave this one to the fans.

Here’s what Bloody Disgusting had to say about the movie:

The first movie followed a group of students hired to break into a desolate house to find a lost VHS tape, paving the way for the movie to go into a series of found-footage stories directed by up-and-coming genre filmmakers. The new movie, starring Adam Wingard, Kelsy Abbott, Lawrence Michael, Levine Hannah Hughes and L.C. Holt, follows a similar structure, with a pair of investigators discovering a tape while looking for a student.

The folks at Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive look at the clip before it eventually found its way onto YouTube. You can check out the first teaser for “S-VHS” below. Remember: the sequel follows a similar structure. That’s all I’m saying.

    Just from this 48 second trailer I already like the sequel more than the original.

    I’m with you. I thought VHS could have been something much better than what it ultimately was… Uninspired and bland. Not excited about the sequel, but will give it a try (on Netflix stream).

    While it definately wasn’t the great return to the horor anthology films that was promised. A few of the stories had cool prmises and visual stylings but fell a bit flat at the end of each segment. I think that every installment could have been a lot richer with a bit more explaination and some more precision overall. That being said I still want to check this out to see if they were able to tweak the problems that the first film had and come out with a better product the second time around.
