“Blair Witch Project” took the found footage gimmick and put it on the map for the horror genre. “Paranormal Activity” made history with it and took it mainstream. Soon, “V/H/S” will be redeeming it.
“V/H/S” is a horror anthology boasting the involvement of some of the most famous names in the branch, which premiered to great critical acclaim at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Above is a brand new, green band trailer for it, which should explain a bit about the plot.
The film tells the story of a group of thieves hired to retrieve a certain VHS tape from an abandoned house. Inside, they find a corpse and a whole lot of other tapes, each with footage more shocking than the one before.
“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 synopsis of the film promises.
“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,” it adds.
“V/H/S” will be out on VOD on August 31, and then in theatres on October 5. *Please note that discretion is recommended when watching the trailer above because it contains disturbing images.
