While here in the UK we still have to wait for VHS/2 to arrive, the horror anthology sequel has just landed on VOD in the US. To celebrate that release, the first clip from the film has made its way on-line, and you can view it below. However, Bloody Disgusting also got their hands on an exclusive new clip, which can also be seen below, as well as an exclusive poster for the film courtesy of MTV.
Also embedded below is a brand new VHS/2 featurette, plus some words with director Gareth Evans on his upcoming sequel, The Raid 2: Berandal.
Now, before we get to VHS/2, firstly lets share some comments director Gareth Evans shared with Collider on the development of The Raid 2: Berandal. The martial arts sequel was supposed to be filming for just 100 days, but is now taking longer than planned, but for good reason. Evans told Collider:
“We’re still shooting it right now. We’re about a month and a half away from finishing the production of it. It’s got the same kind of action beats in terms of the style of the action, but our approach this time is to go way more cinematic with it. We’re expanding the universe out. We’re taking the story out of that little claustrophobic setting and putting it out into the streets and into the high end gangsters in Jakarta. It’s a lot bigger in scope. So fingers crossed people will kind of come along for the ride again.”
“We should be finished with post by the end of this year and then maybe early next year we can have the release.”
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.
