Cinemart thinks the work of Joe Swanberg, Ti West and Adam Wingard is excellent. That they’ve teamed up (with a couple of others) for a new horror anthology called V/H/S just gets us excited and we’ll bet our kidneys* this will be screening at this year’s FrightFest.
This US ‘red band’ trailer has just hit the Net in preparation for a Video on Demand release on 31st August then theatrical on 5th October. No word yet on a UK release date but we’ll keep you all posted on that matter. We’ve also got a synopsis to give you the lowdown on the general gist. Sounds pretty sick! Check it out, yo.
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.
Bringing together some of the top filmmakers in the game today, this wickedly conceived horror anthology sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock, and downright brutality—instantly distinguishing itself from a sea of lackluster found-footage horror flicks. The diverse and deviously creative minds behind V/H/S shatter any preconceived notions about the genre, making it feel inventive and captivating once again.
*kidneys will not be used for betting. We need them! Well, one, sure. But I like them as a set.
