[Random Cool] Tumblr Fan Creates Flashy ‘V/H/S’ Animated Gifs!

This was too cool not to share. Tumblr’s The Undead Critic created a series of 9 animated gifs for V/H/S, our found footage anthology hitting VOD August 31 and in limited theaters October 5 from Magnet Releasing. You can also keep up with the release (and new theater announcements) at the 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.

Filmmakers involved in V/H/S include 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.

      Amen to that! Is the VoD available overseas too? I’m worried it’s not available outside US. -_-
