Last year's low-budget, high-scares horror movie V/H/S is getting a sequel. V/H/S/2 follows the same formula as the original movie and will be a collaborative effort that sees six directors each helm a short scare-fest. The first teaser trailer for the movie has landed, but before you gorge yourself on that, check out the synopsis first:
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.
Now here's the trailer:
Even though V/H/S wasn't particularly well received either commercially or critically, (it only grossed $99,800 in the US and scored 54% on Rotten Tomatoes). I really enjoyed it. It proved that when done well, there's still a future for found footage horror and I found some of the segments genuinely frightening.
The sequel will also have a story directed by The Raid's , so it should be worth checking out for that alone.
S-VHS is still waiting on a distributor and release date, but if you [[follow]] you'll get all the latest updates when they hit.
