First Theatrical Dates And Locations For ‘V/H/S’ Announced!!

VHS-banner

I don’t have to tell you that I love V/H/S. If I hated it I’d merely skulk around silently and let its release pass me by. But, fact is, the movie’s a lot of fun! It’s insanely gory and somewhat sexually disturbing in all the right ways (so much so that I’m kinda surprised it’s not NC-17). Anyway – it comes out on various VOD platforms on August 31st, which is a perfectly acceptable way to check out the film. But if you want the real experience, you’ve got to be in a room full of screaming people. That’s where the theatrical release, which starts on October 5th, comes in. And now we have the initial list of theaters where it will be playing and when it will be playing them.

Featuring the likes of Bloody Disgusting favorites 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, the quasi-anthology also plays the Toronto After Dark summer series, Fantasia Film Festival and the UK Film4 FrightFest this summer.

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.

Head inside for the list! Don’t see yours? Want it closer to your house? More locations will be announced soon. You can follow @MagnetReleasing on twitter for updates. If you want, @them and let them know you want it in YOUR town.

    I drove up to Toronto to see it in the After Dark Summer Series. It’s definitely worth seeing in a packed theater if any of these are near you. The audience I saw it with loved every minute. Equal parts laughs, scares and its insanely gory with some really disturbing segments. As a longtime reader of BD, I was really impressed. Lots of potential for a sequel too.
