First Batch Of Official ‘V/H/S’ Imagery Unearthed

2-VHS-080312

I’m so out of control excited for August 31. We’ve been tight-lipped since January 2011 on our experimental horror anthology V/H/S, which we were mind blown was accepted into the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The love has been extraordinary, but ultimately we just want to impress you guys. Bloody Disgusting is my life and you dear readers are the site’s lifeforce. Without you we have nothing. Without you it all means nothing. So on August 31, when V/H/S hits VOD, we’ll open up the user review page and let you guys have at it. Good or bad, we want to read and share your opinion with other readers. And those of you who want to catch it in theaters, it’ll begin a limited run on October 5 – supposedly there’s actual prints! All of this information, along with two newly provided stills (you can check all of ‘em out inside) all come courtesy of the film’s official website.

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.

So who is part of the madness, you ask? 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.

    WOW, this whole time I was just assuming VHS was a documentary. Judging from the trailer which I thought was fantastic, this is going to be epic! Can’t wait!

    Already shaping up to be the horror must-see of the year, it looks incredible. Any chance of a theatrical release in the UK…?

  • Nothing333

    Canadian dates? Halifax, Nova Scotia would love itself some V/H/S love.

    • BelaManiac

      Ontario too, please!

    Saw this movie at the New Zealand Film Festival and what a awesome film! 100% loved it from start to finish. Everyones segments bring it to the table and left me smiling in my seat.

    The screening I attended also had David Bruckner talking and he said that there is a VHS2 already in the works and being shot.

    It’s a awesome film and everyone that is hyped for it, you’ll come out 100% satisfied.
