While you guys haven’t seen V/H/S/2 yet, I’m wondering if a screening of Adam Wingard’s segment might give Canadian Filmmaker Rob Spence pause before going ahead with his plan to have a working camera for an eye, though I suppose odds are slim it will actually lead to a supernatural encounter.
Per Unbelievable Facts, “[Spence] damaged his right eye in a childhood accident and is determined to replace it with a digital camera. “Team Eyeborg” has just succeeded in fitting Spence with an artificial eye containing a working LED – a step towards a camera-containing synthetic eye.”
Right now, the LED records visual information and sends it to a computer. But it sounds like the ultimate goal is to set up a configuration that not only records information, but allows Spence to see stereoscopically again. Obviously I think this is a super cool endeavor and I wish Spence and his team all the luck in the world. I also hope this new eye doesn’t cause him to see too much.

Our friends at Twitch have landed the first ever official still from S-VHS, our latest V/H/S project 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, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, 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.
S-VHS is shooting in LA, Maryland, Nova Scotia, British Columbia and Indonesia. Head to Twitch for the full image!
Personally, I really enjoyed V/H/S. I’m not saying that as a Bloody-Disgusting writer. Rather, I’m saying that as a horror fan. And one of the things I really enjoyed was how, during the credits, the movie had an actual song (The Death Set‘s “They Come To Get Us”, which also has possibly the most incredible music video ever) rather than one of those bullshit “And they were never heard from again…” screens. The movie was loads of fun and the song fit that bill in spades.
Now, The Death Set are possibly back for V/H/S/2. On their official Twitter, the band states that they are writing two songs for the sequel. As of now, it’s not 100% confirmed that the songs will be in the movie (after all, you don’t confirm a song will be in something if it’s not even finished being recorded, right?). However, you can see the tweets, which were retweeted by the official V/H/S Twitter account below.
