After a very limited run in theaters at the beginning of October, the horror anthology that made audiences pass out at Sundance called ‘V/H/S’ is gearing up for a home video release in December. In addition, a sequel has just been greenlit with some interesting names attached to film segments.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Garth Evans, the director of ‘The Raid’, Eduardo Sanchez, the director of ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Lovely Molly’, and Jason Eisener, director of ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’ will all be directing segments for ‘V/H/S 2’. They’ll be joined by Adam Wingard, the man behind ‘A Horrible Way to Die’, and Simon Barrett, the writer behind two segments in the original film who will be making his directorial debut in the sequel.
The first ‘V/H/S’ followed a group of students who were tasked with retrieving a VHS tape from a rundown old house, but when they discover stacks on stacks of tapes to go through, they bear witness to a number of horrifying visuals, each stranger than the last. The new film will be similar, except it will follow two investigators discovering a tape while searching for a missing student, presumably one of the guys from the first film.
This movie is being produced and financed by The Collective and Bloody Disgusting, a horror website which has ventured into the movie making business. It’s uncertain when ‘V/H/S 2’ will hit theaters, but we do know that it will shoot in L.A., Maryland, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, and Indonesia.
