    It was just under a year ago that horror anthology V/H/S caused a stir at Sundance, the high profile project leaving audiences buzzing. At least the ones who didn't faint. And now the producers behind that project are at it again with a new anthology titled S-VHS.

    As previously reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the directors this time out include Gareth Evans (The Raid) co-directing with Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre); Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) co-directing with his long time producer Greg Hale; Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun); Adam Wingard (You're Next) and writer Simon Barrett making his directorial debut.

    And now Twitch is proud to exclusively present the very first official image from the project. The blood soaked affair above comes from the Evans / Tjahjanto segment.

      Hopefully this one has a better wraparound story.

        I am so looking forward to S-V/H/S. I loved the first one and can't wait to see what they put together for the second. =)

          Yes, the tie-around story was awe-ful but I found that everything else (surprisingly) worked. The only segment I didn't really love was the the one most people rave about, the Succubus and even that had it's moments.

          This time around, the directors are, naturally, weaker, but I'll still bite on the strength of the original.
          Ya, opinions are split (it was average for me.). Definitely creative, but lacking substance.

          I'd argue that the directors this time around are far more known (and better directors) in the horror genre than those in the first. That's the reason why I'm pretty excited for this one, despite only moderately liking the first.

                man, that trailer got me pretty hyped about this. Looks to be way better than the first. Can't wait!

                  It looks awesome. Definitely looks higher quality than the first, but that's not a bad thing whatsoever.

                    The two indy darling fuckheadsí segments really bogged the first one down. Iím a heavy duty House Of The Devil guy (really loved that insane payoff and the mother make-up almost reached Zelda-like creepiness. Almost. Then again even that still couldíve been trimmed to a more efficient 75 minutes.)

                    But seriously fuck Westís segment in V/H/S. It had no business being tacked on and didnít fit at all with the other stories. 25 boring ponderous ass bullshit minutes for that little jolt? Somebody skipped Anthology Horror 101.

                    As for the video chat segment, it was slightly more intense than your average Goosebumps episode and it wouldnít have been worthy of even a network anthology like Night Visions. But at least it had tits-a-flashing so thereís that.

                    Subtract those two stumbles and you have a solid three main segment 90-minute movie. I donít know that it wouldíve quelled the annoying misogyny whines. And what whines they were; apparently you canít have two-dimensional meathead frat boys, female monsters or ghosts or a former final girl returning to the scene of the crime using her annoying friends as bait or ďWAH! WAH! MISOGYNY!Ē I just donít get it.

                    Take Tuesday the 17th for instance. Why is the former final girl leading her new douchebag friends to slaughter as bait automatically considered her just being a manipulative conniving cunt instead of just a good old whackjob who became obsessed with cornering this absurdly supernatural killer?

                    The whine works much better if it is about how these characters are almost all obnoxious grating pricks as they are in most things that come out nowadays. Come on though; itís a fucking anthology, whereís all the time for this character development going to come from? Plus that was kind of the whole point in the Lily segment. Whatís the alternative? Present a story where some LARPers find Lily deep in the woods in some cave and she lays waste to the poor geeks?

                    Looking into the sequel and the names behind it, it looks like it might deliver on 3 out of 5 segments but be similarly bogged down by the very same kind of worthless indydouche stumbling blocks as the first. The format certainly seems tailor-made for the guys behind Hobo and of course BWP.

                      I think that was pretty much the problem with all of the stories. They were all basically 20 minutes of irritating build up, with annoying characters, for a whole 1 minute payoff. Every story was trying to be this subtle, slow burn, but when all combined, it made for one hell of an uneventful movie.

                        All anybody has to do is look back at something like "The Raft" from Creepshow 2 to see how easy it is to just show some idiot kids out partying and then getting methodically picked off without resorting to making any of the dipshits over the top obnoxious. Although I guess that one guy in "The Raft" was just as skeevy as any of the frat boys. But it was just a little breast suckle.

                        Of course, that's just too simple nowadays.

                        I still thought if the whole thing was 80 or 90 minutes (with a better wraparound; look how ingenious the original Creepshow wraparound comes off compared to this shit) doing just those three segments it could've been much tighter.

                          I hated the first one. Don't forget the trailer for the first one was also pretty intense so I'm not raising my hopes up. When will it be released?

                            Some first reviews for this are coming out of Sundance, and they've all been really positive so far. I can't wait, and they're saying to expect amazing things from The Raid Director, along with Jason Eisner.

                              Thought the first was solid and I'm getting more excited the more I hear about it.

                              Some of the critics I follow on Twitter who weren't huge fans of the first are saying it's a major improvement. High(ish) hopes for it now.


                              Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
                              I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.
