Magnet Releasing acquired US rights to horror anthology sequel, S-VHS in January, while Magnolia Pictures acquired distribution rights for outside of the US. Now the highly anticipated sequel has revealed a slight change to its title, as well as some other good stuff.
S-VHS will now go by the imaginative title of VHS2, and the film will get a VOD release in the US on 6th June, and shortly after on July 12th the film will arrive in US cinemas. No dates have yet been announced for the UK.
Two rather disturbing new images have also been revealed for the film, as well as a brand new synopsis. One of the images can be seen above, and the second image you will find at the bottom of this post following the brand new synopsis.
The directors for S-VHS include Gareth Evans ( The Raid and Merantau), Eduardo Sanchez (Lovely Molly, The Blair Witch Project) along with his producing partner Gregg Hale, Jason Eisner (Hobo With A Shotgun) and Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre, The ABC’s of Death) will be joining returning writer and director Adam Wingard (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), and writer/producer Simon Barrett (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die) will be making his directorial debut.
