[Sundance '13] ‘S-VHS’ To World Premiere!!

S-VHS official still

We have some pretty exciting news that we’re still having trouble believing… we’re excited to announce that S-VHS, our latest V/H/S project, will have its World Premiere at this coming January’s 2013 Sundance Film Festival as part of their annual Park City at Midnight section! V/H/S premiered at this past year’s festival in Park City, Utah where Magnet Releasing acquired U.S. rights (it arrives on VOD, DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday!).

We’d like to take this time to thank you guys for your constant support, and for putting up with any shameless promotions. We’ve tried our absolute best to keep it to a minimum as to not annoy the living daylights out of you. As we’ve stated on a handful of occasions, we couldn’t be here without you, and making you guys proud of us is our number one priority. With BD Selects and our feature productions we’ve made it our mission to supply you guys with what we think is quality content, and hope to some degree that you agree and approve. It means the world to us…

…and with that, we’d like to introduce S-VHS to the world! Below we’ve added three official stills from the latest tape that features the works of Gareth Evans (The Raid) & Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly) & Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), the latter of which will be making his directorial debut on the film.

The first movie followed a group of students hired to break into a desolate house to find a lost VHS tape, paving the way for the movie to go into a series of found-footage stories directed by up-and-coming genre filmmakers. The new movie, starring Adam Wingard, Kelsy Abbott, Lawrence Michael, Levine Hannah Hughes and L.C. Holt, follows a similar structure, with a pair of investigators discovering a tape while looking for a student.

    Awesome, I really liked the first film. I dig found footage films and I like my anthologies to tie together the way ‘Trick ‘R Treat’ and these films do.

      I loved Trick ‘ Treat dearly and I don’t think V/H/S wrapped its plot up nearly as well as that film. The wraparound story is where it kind of fell apart and kept the movie from becoming great instead of just good. Maybe I missed it, but I wanted to know what was up with the dead (or not) guy in the chair, how did he accumulate so many of those tapes, who wanted the tape and why, what was on the sought after tape (although one could argue the very last segment is what was on the tape) and so forth. I just wanted all the stories to tie in better than they did. I enjoyed the movie, but having answers to those questions would have made it the best horror film of the year. The fact that everything fit together like a 1,000 piece puzzle in Trick ‘r Treat is what made it so damn good. Hopefully the sequel will wrap things up better than the original.
