The First Clip From ‘V/H/S’ Discovered Via… VHS!

VHS_Poster_Banner_61412

With just three days until release, Magnet has sent out some promotional V/H/S packages to various press outlets. These sites all get a one-of-a-kind VHS tape that carries a bootleg clip from the “anthology” arriving on VOD platforms this Thursday, August 30. And it appears that Ryan Turek from Shock Till You Drop was the first one to hook his player up and convert analog to digital! He uncovered a clip from David Bruckner’s (absolutely nuts) segment, “Amateur Night”.

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.

Hit up Magnolia Pictures for the rundown of available VOD Platforms (iTunes, Cable etc…) and check out Magnet Releasing for more on the film. Head inside for the clip!

    cool, thanks for sharing! i got caught up in watching that i started thinking that you were touching the girl. anyway, i’m really curious about the movie, can’t wait to see it.

  • ItsMorphinTime

    Was kinda disappointed as well. First and last stories were probably the most entertaining, didn’t really enjoy the other 3.

  • Blood-Sicles

    Really excited to see it! Any chance this will show in Austin, TX? I’d really like to know before I rent it on VOD. Would much rather wait a month and see it on the big screen.

    @blood-sicles Maybe! Let me check for you.

    This movie is awesome. Aside from the fact that it’s original and very well done, it just feels like it shouldn’t work, but it does.
