Remember the good ol days of VHS? Yeah, me, neither. Anyways, “V/H/S” is a new horror movie anthology, featuring Adam Wingard, Glenn McQuaid, Radio Silence, David Bruckner, Joe Swanberg, and probably the only name that rings any bell to you, Ti West (of “House of the Devil” fame). Anyways, the filmmakers have released a couple of images and a swanky new poster for the flick. Check it out below, those of you who enjoy checking out horror movie posters online.
When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one, they are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.
Bringing together some of the top filmmakers in the game today, this wickedly conceived horror anthology sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock, and downright brutality—instantly distinguishing itself from a sea of lackluster found-footage horror flicks. The diverse and deviously creative minds behind V/H/S shatter any preconceived notions about the genre, making it feel inventive and captivating once again.
The film will be available from Magnolia On-Demand starting August 31st, before slipping in theaters on October 5th, 2012.
