Sundance hit V/H/S was picked up during the fest by Magnolia Pictures genre label, Magnet Releasing. Magnolia’s normal VOD-before-theaters model will be in play when V/H/S hits VOD on August 31st 2012 a few weeks before debuting in theaters on October 5th. With the film looming on the horizon, we’re starting to see some promo material emerge. Case in point? This old-school poster that Movies.com got their hands on.
In the film, “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 YouTube sensations Radio Silence.
And yes, in full disclosure the Bloody-Disgusting co-founders had a major hand in making the film. But we’re allowed to be frank here – if I didn’t like this movie I wouldn’t compliment it. But it’s actually a pretty great ride and I can’t wait for a lot more people to see it! Head inside to check out the poster.
