Filmmaking and life converge around a werewolf film.
Magnolia releases V/H/S (write your reviews) DVD/Blu-ray TODAY, December 4th! Extras include deleted scenes, a featurette on the visual effects, a behind the scenes featurette, an AXS TV: A Look at V/H/S feature, a filmmakers’ commentary and trailers. If you’re not into physical media, it’s also available on iTunes – though I’m not sure if all of the extras come with that version.
In the film “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.”
To celebrate we’ve got some (in most cases) new/previously unpublished quotes from filmmakers Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Pop Skull), Simon Barrett (You’re Next, Dead Birds, Red Sands), Ti West (The House of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.

Hard working indie star Joe Swanberg (who you can see in A Horrible Way to Die) is continuing to persue his directing career with Silver Bullets, his new feature that will premiere this coming March at the SXSW Film Festival.
He’ll be starring alongside Jane Adams, Ti West (The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil, The Roost), Larry Fessenden (Bitter Feast, I Sell the Dead), Kate Lyn Sheil, and Horrible Way to Die co-star Amy Seimetz in a film following an actress and her filmmaker boyfriend experience turbulence in their relationship when she accepts a role in a werewolf film. Her relationship with her new director blossoms while her boyfriend spirals into a dangerous depression.
We’re told that there are barely any horror elements to the film, so be warned in advance. David Harley will speak to Swanberg and get the full lowdown. Until then, check out the first ever stills and long synopsis inside.
