Return The Tape With This ‘V/H/S/2′ Poster!!

The poster for V/H/S/2 has emerged and it’s a nice, solid classy look for the film! It keeps the skull theme from the original but adds an air of old-school menace. By the way, as someone who really liked most of the original film, I’ve got no problem telling you that V/H/S/2 is much, much better. It’s tighter, shorter, leaner and a rock solid viewing experience.

Acquired by Magnet Releasing out of Sundance as S-VHS, V/H/S/2 will be arriving on VOD platforms June 6 with a theatrical rollout set for July 12. In the film directed by Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Gareth Evans, Eduardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener and Timo Tjahjanto, “Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.

What was your favorite segment in V/H/S? Which director has you most excited for V/H/S/2?

    I enjoyed V/H/S for the most part. Kind of hit-and-miss (the second honeymoon/fortune teller machine short at the motel bored the shit out of me), but V/H/S also had some really cool and spooky spots (the ending, where the friends find the demonized girl at the “Halloween party” was PERFECT).

    Excited for V/H/S 2, and I’m hoping this evolves into a series, because I wouldn’t mind a part 3 or 4.

  • DarrelDreadful

    I agree. Found footage feature lengths have been kinda ruined by the PA franchise. But I like V/H/S for keeping it in a more simple format, better experience when things aren’t so slow or done to death.

      Indeed, the major difference is:

      PA: Whats happening in the: First 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes. IGNORE the complete rest.

      VHS and (allegedly) VHS2 : Whats happening through the whole damn story?

    “A second generation with no loss of quality.”
    “a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods.”
    “Who’s tracking you?”

    Ha, I love the marketing for this! Fun stuff!

    Anthology films need to make a serious comeback
    VHS has been a great start

    Yes there has been other recent anthology films
    but I’ve only thoroughly enjoyed VHS

    calm your tits people. it’s going to be decent at least

  • ill_mindedd

    ehh there was a few short stories in the first film that i liked, not all of them were as exciting as the next. but i think i’ll give this upcomming sequal a chance. why not?

  • Mr.Mirage

    I really enjoyed the first one, mostly because of the things people seem to hate about it. It was not all super horror, but varying degrees of unease, just exactly what I like in an anthology format. Looking forward to VHS2 and hopefully a 3.

    Amazing fucking poster! I believe I like it more than the first one, which I also liked quite a bit!
    I loved roughly 90% (yea, something like that) of the first one and from everything I’ve read this is even better. Even some of the toughest critics (read: Devin Faraci) have given this high praise. Can’t wait!

  • ThunderDragoon

    I loved the first one. Loving the tagline for this. Excited to see it.

  • fnckyon

  • eagleye25
