The horror anthology film V/H/S teams up a good handful of film talents: Radio Silence, Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die), Simon Barrett(You’re Next, Dead Birds), Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg (Silver Bullets), and Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), with each of the group contributing a creepy low-fi horror story to the collection.
We’ve seen one red-band trailer for the film, which showed off a good bit of violence, but now there is a more tame green-band trailer. It’s still edges towards the intense side of the trailer tone spectrum, but it probably won’t get you fired if you sneak a look at work.
Apple has the trailer. V/H/S premieres on VOD August 31 and then hits theaters on October 5.
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.
