Magnolia released V/H/S (write your reviews) on DVD and Blu-ray this week (along with iTunes and VOD etc…). But there’s another, older – and titular – format on which the film can be seen. Actual VHS tape! Total Film has the rundown on the UK release (via Momentum films) of the film on its “intended” format.
“The logistics of such an exercise were far from easy, and by all accounts Momentum Pictures had to undertake considerable research to get big-box-sized tapes made up which include many nods to the glory days of rental stores. Getting hold of these tapes won’t be easy though. Only 300 numbered copies have been manufactured and Momentum are promising a unique V/H/S event in January at which lucky fans will be able to get hold of them. Further details will emerge on the Total Film VHS Hub.”
V/H/S comes from filmmakers 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), and Radio Silence.
Head inside for a better look at the big box packaging! And keep your eyes peeled for a US Version from Magnolia soon!
