After last weeks shocking, chaotic and ultra terrifying red band trailer landed for VHS/2, today see’s the release of the green band trailer. Now, while green band trailers are generally suitable for audiences that can easily be offended by the sight of blood, sex or violence, this trailer might be a major issue for those with a nervous disposition.
Full of genuinely frightening moments, this trailer may hold back on the gore and violence, but it does not hold back on the all out mayhem going on here. With the brutal stuff removed, it gives this trailer the chance to show off a little more footage too, and boy does this look good. Many have complained at the quality of the first film, and claiming it was not actually very good. I can’t see those complaints returning for this sequel…
V/H/S 2 arrives on VOD in the US from June 6th, and will have a theatrical release from July 12th. There are no UK dates announced at this time.
The directors for V/H/S 2 include Gareth Evans ( The Raid and Merantau), Eduardo Sanchez (Lovely Molly, The Blair Witch Project) along with his producing partner Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener (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.
Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.
From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.
