Following the red band and the international trailers for ‘V/H/S’, Magnolia has released a new green band trailer that’s suitable for all audiences. Despite being a bit tamer than what we’ve seen before, it still looks pretty intimidating to someone who gets easily freaked out by scary movies. (Not me specifically, but I could see how some people would be scared.) However, horror fans may take a liking to it, as it was a hit at Sundance and South By Southwest. At least to the people who didn’t get sick or pass out.
Check out the new trailer below, courtesy of Collider, followed by the official 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.
Bringing together some of the top filmmakers in the game today, this wickedly conceived horror anthology sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock, and downright brutality—instantly distinguishing itself from a sea of lackluster found-footage horror flicks. The diverse and deviously creative minds behind V/H/S shatter any preconceived notions about the genre, making it feel inventive and captivating once again.
Written and directed by Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, and the directing quartet known as Radio Silence, ‘V/H/S’ premieres on Video OnDemand services on August 31st before receiving a limited theatrical run starting on October 5th.
