Want A Taste Of An Alternate ‘V/H/S’ Ending!?

1-VHS-080312

Screenwriter Simon Barrett took to Facebook where he shares an alternate/deleted final scene from Bloody Disgusting and Magnet Releasing’s V/H/S (your reviews), which is now available On Demand everywhere (iTunes, Amazon, Charter, Comcast, Google Play, DirecTV, Playstation 3, SuddenLink, Time Warner, VUDU, Xbox Zune) before hitting limited theaters October 5. While there’s not much of a spoiler here, I’d probably suggest you check out the movie before reading on.

Barrett, who penned both the wrap, “Tape 56,” and Joe Swanberg’s “The Strange Thing That Happened To Emily When She Was Younger,” shared this: “For your confusion/indifference, here is a still image from a deleted scene we shot for V/H/S. It will NOT be on the DVD, etc. The photo looks cool but the scene ultimately didn’t fit the film.

In the film directed by the likes of Adam Wingard, Ti West, David Bruckner, Glenn McQuaid, Radio Silence and Joe Swanberg, “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.

    I saw VHS, it wasn’t bad. Wasn’t that brilliant. Sat somewhere in the middle. Hit high points and low points. But I’ve gotta ask and I believe this is a legitimate question:

    Do you guys think you’ve hit the oversaturation point with your self advertising point with this by now?

    Each day almost brings another one to two articles about VHS it seems, it may or may not but it SEEMS. I usually click on BD now on my desktop (Yeah I actually have a link), but then I get this sort of twinge of ‘Shit… am I gonna see a VHS article…. do I wanna click?’ I NEVER get that feeling with CHUD, LR or any other sites… Now don’t get me wrong, I love your site, I really do, you guys have been my #1 site for horror info for… holy shit maybe a DECADE? Close to?

    But really guys, oversaturation, you’ve reached it, really. Time to lighten the load a bit on the VHS articles.

    I really do mean this comment with all due respect.

    I actually dug this flick, saw it last night at Calgary Int. Film Fest. A lot of fun and scares.
