A few days ago, we saw a red band trailer for the horror anthology "V/H/S," now an international trailer for the film has surfaced online, giving us a few new glimpses at the 'found footage' inspired creeper. There's floating dinnerware, blackbirds flying in a hallway, a dead body floating in a creek, arms and hands coming out of walls, a vampire-like succubus in a hotel room, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together! What the hell is going on in this movie? We don't exactly know, but we're definitely looking forward to it. Directed by a slew of genre helmers (Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, Radio Silence), the segmented film revolves around a hired crew of robbers who break into a mysterious abandoned house, where they find a large cache of videotapes, all containing sinister recordings of unexplained events. The film will open in theaters on Oct. 5th, but will also be available on VOD starting on Aug. 31st.
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.
