With just TWO 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. Now, Lawrence Raffel over at Fearnet, and Steve Barton at Dread Central have both uncovered the same clip, with corrected audio! Since these clips really are playing on VHS players – the only option many people have is to tape them from their phone!
“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.
