New Featurette Goes Behind the Scenes of Horror Anthology 'V/H/S'
The terrifying horror anthology V/H/Shas been getting rave reviews at film festivals around the country (see our Sundance video blog here), and today it's finally available for all to see on VOD before it heads to limited theaters on October 5th, 2012. Now we've got a cool new featurette for the film which features interviews with the multiple filmmakers involved in the project as they each introduce their segments, and also talk about how important it is to give a legitimate reason as to why these people are filming these events, a question that found footage flicks don't always satisfyingly answer for the audience. Check it out!
Here's the new featurette for the Sundance selected horror anthology V/H/S from FearNet:
When a group of misfits is hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they discover more found footage than they bargained for. Horror filmmakers Adam Wingard, Glenn McQuaid, Radio Silence, David Bruckner, Joe Swanberg and Ti West all direct segments in this chilling anthology which Magnolia is bringing to limited theaters on October 5th this fall. The film was produced by our friend Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting, and also The Collective. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and is now available on VOD. V/H/S also hits limited theaters on October 5th.

just saw this last week, while i didn't find any part of it scary i did enjoy it quite a bit. there were a couple shorts that i disliked but over all i found it to be a fun and not easily forgettable film.

The only segment I didn't like was where the girl took her friends into the woods. The rest were good in their own ways.

Saw this last week,. HORRIBLE crap. And to top it off you'll end with a terrible headache since the entire directing style is handheld camera over acting and substance...Seriously don't waste your time and money.

If you are a fan of indie horror and horror anthologies in general then you will have a blast. Each director lends his own take on the found footage angle and although some stories work better than others it's still a very fun ride. I'd totally be down for a trilogy of more directors taking their turn at crazy and whacked out twisted tales in this format. Can't wait to see it again on a big screen (with actual fans of the genre) at Sitges later in October. "I like you",.

This was a huge letdown. The trailer made this movie look absolutely terrifying. The overall story about the people going into the house was good but became stupid. As for the stories within the story my opinion is as follows. First one: Terrible. the characters were so awful you wanted them to die. Second one: Kind of creepy. Third one: So unbelievably bad. Fourth one: Confusing. The only reason I understood is because I watched the credits to see who the 2 big titted girls were and saw what the characters were called. Fifth one: Great. By far the best of the bunch.

I am SO very *sick and tired* of the "found footage" genre. They're cheap to produce (sort of the film equivalent of "reality television" tripe), highly derivative and decidedly NOT scary. Please, just stop.

Just a big clusterfuck of blurred motions. >.<"

9 out of 10 bad reviews for this movie are whining pussies complaining about how they got a headache because of shaky cam. If you're using shaky-cam-headache-syndrome as a point to complain about a found footage movie, your review goes directly out the door for me. PS, V/H/S/ is one of the best horror movies in a very long time.
