Holy crap we’re excited. Both Tom and myself produced V/H/S (become a fan on Facebook), a new kind of horror anthology that Magnet/Magnolia will release on VOD August 31 and in limited theaters October 5. It’s our first major endeavor that sort of shocked us and caught us off guard with the amount and love and support it’s been getting. We apologize that we’ve been so cryptic over the past year, but it’s just not in our blood to celebrate ourselves. The site’s always been about the horror community as a whole, and frankly, all that matters to us is that we don’t fail you. (We just want to leave the legacy that we did things the “right way”). We’re proud of our little film and hope that it earns your gory nod of approval.
Now that we’ve finally shared the official poster, this evening Yahoo! has premiered the long-awaited trailer. Finally we have footage to share that will take you into the collective minds of Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Pop Skull), Simon Barrett (You’re Next, Dead Birds, Red 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!
Also, here’s Magnolia’s newly released synopsis: “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.”
The trailer is quite revealing but also absolutely fantastic, IMO. What do you guys think? We’re dying to know what your thoughts are at this point…
