Take a look at the brand new poster for V/H/S. After a successful showing at the Sundance Film Festival, the “found footage” horror anthology movie was acquired by Magnolia Pictures and will be released later this year.
Similar to how Magnolia handled The Innkeepers, V/H/S will be first released to video-on-demand on August 31st. Then, just in time for Halloween, the film will start hitting theaters on October 5th. We don’t have details on how many screens will be showing the film, but we’ll have a theater listing closer to the release date.
V/H/S features segments directed by Adam Wingard, Ti West, David Bruckner, Glenn McQuaid, Radio Silence, and Joe Swanberg. The film stars Joe Swanberg, Calvin Reeder, Adam Wingard, Sophia Takal, Kate Lyn Sheil, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Chad Villella, and Tyler Gillett.
Synopsis: “When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one, they are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.”
