New Poster for Horror Anthology 'V/H/S' Will Strangle You with Fear

Not long ago we got a glimpse of an illustrated poster commemorating one of the segments in the horror anthology V/H/S (which is currently available on VOD). Now a new alternate poster has surfaced that dispenses with the artwork and focuses on the object at hand: a VHS tape. It's a simple poster, and while normally one might think this film is about a rogue video tape strangling its victims, it's just a figurative visual. As we said countless times before, this flick really brought the terror when we checked it out at midnight at Sundance earlier this year, and it's one that might be even scarier if you're watching from home.

Here's the alternate poster for the horror anthology V/H/S from SlashFilm:


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.

Having recently seen V/H/S and really not liked it at all, I'm wondering what the hype is all about here on firstshowing. Not making wild accusations, but does someone here know someone who had a hand in making the film?

I personally don't know anyone affiliated with the film, but I found it to be wholly entertaining, suspenseful and generally a refreshing found footage horror flick. What didn't you like about it? What's normally your horror cup of tea?

I'll tell you what I didn't like about, some of these stories didn't make any sense, and the ending of a couple of them left you scratching your head. But I respect what the filmmakers were trying to do with this and I urge horror fans to see it and support it. It's still better than those Paranormal movies..

Thanks for the reply Ethan. Yes, I'm a huge horror fan that's always on the lookout for a worthy contemporary horror film (with hopes held high & expectations held low). This was how I went into V/H/S, but I just found the acting & actors annoying, the premises not that imaginative and the writing just not there. I knew going in that it would be chock full o' shaky cam so that didn't really bother me, I just didn't feel any tension or horror from any of the segments...aside from the initial "strange looks" from the girl-in-the-bar segment and maybe a bit of the haunted house bits from the final segment. I'm usually a "horror apologist" amongst my friends and family so I was fully prepared to recommend (and defend) this to them, but after such a disappointment I won't be. Anyway, for the record the last contemporary horror film I truly enjoyed was Ti West's House Of The Devil. I didn't enjoy his follow-up The Innkeepers though. Anyway, enough of my yappin.

Fair enough. The only segment I wasn't crazy about was the one in the woods with the teenagers. Otherwise, every other one kept me on the edge of my seat. Loved the haunted house segment especially. I'm right there with you on Ti West's films though. Loved House of the Devil and absolutely hated The Innkeepers.

i love scary movies, every scary movie that comes out i look for a movie that will scare/creep me the hell out and make me wannna stop the movie or walk out cuz i cant handle it, everyone say the first exorcist movie was the scariest movie of all time and It, Hell Raiser, Chuckie Etc. But when i watched this movie with the surround sound on mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn i never been soo creeped out and scared from watching a scary movie alone with surround sound on, i had to cover my face 30 mins into the movie and stop it because with the surround sound up, really got to me and felt like i was there lol never got past the first segment yet but i will sooner or later haha overall i loved what i saw so far 5/5
