The first trailer for the horror anthology V/H/S 2 has debuted online in all its bloody, chaotic glory. I enjoyed the majority of the first V/H/S, but judging by this trailer the sequel has much more to offer. The overall product looks bigger, slicker and wilder, not to mention gory as hell. Everything and the kitchen sink has seemingly been thrown into this whirlwind of blood and scares, promising one hell of a wild ride. Count me in!
V/H/S 2 combines the directorial talents of Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Gareth Evans, Eduardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener and Timo Tjahjanto. The film will be released on VOD on June 6 and in theatres on July 12.
“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.”
