While here in the UK we are sadly missing out on VHS/2 right now, those lucky peeps in the US can now watch the film on VOD, and will see it in cinemas from July 12th. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t get caught up in all the madness surrounding the films US release, like showing you two more illustrated posters released today.
Both posters are superb, and can sit nicely next to the previous poster revealed earlier this week for Adam Wingard’s ‘Clinical Trials’ segment. Today see’s a poster for both Gareth Evans’ (The Raid) ‘Safe Haven’ and Jason Eisener’s (Hobo With a Shotgun) ‘Slumber Party Alien Abduction’. Enjoy!
V/H/S 2 arrived 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.
