[EFM ’12] Momentum Pictures Acquires ‘V/H/S’ For UK

Screen Daily reports that Momentum Pictures has acquired all UK rights to our Sundance hit V/H/S! This means that UK readers will now be able to see the horror anthology “about a group of misfits hired to burglarise a house to find a rare VHS tape, only to find more found footage than they wanted to see.

The directors are Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Pop Skull), Simon Barrett (You’re Next, Dead Birds, Read Sands), Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Roost, The Innkeepers), David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg (Silver Bullets), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), along with Radio Silence, the YouTube sensations formerly known as Chad, Matt and Rob (Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Chad Villella).

Magnolia Pictures genre label, Magnet Releasing picked up US and Canadian rights during Sundance with an eye toward a fall theatrical release.

The film was notable at Sundance when an audience member fainted.

The film will also screen at SXSW in March.
