A few weeks ago, I posted a press release on a very anticipated indie horror film called V/H/S and promised I would post more if new information was sent in to me. Well, not only has a red-band trailer for the film been released, but a regular green band trailer has also made a presence. Looks like an awesome time.
Here's the synopsis for V/H/S:
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.
Green Band Trailer
*** V/H/S will be available through Magnolia On-Demand starting 8/31; in theaters starting 10/5 ***
I also have news on another anticipated horror film. [REC] 3 finally gets a red band trailer that also looks pretty sweet. Magnet Releasing will distribute the film on VOD on Friday, August 3rd. Those who want to see it in theaters will get a chance when it's released selectively on Friday, September 7th. As a fan of this series so far, I'm looking very forward to this one.
Here's the synopsis for [REC] 3:
Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride, the groom and their families are enjoying a wonderful day in the countryside until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness. Before they know what’s happening, the bride and groom find themselves in the middle of a hellish ordeal, as an uncontrollable torrent of violence is unleashed on the wedding. What started off as an idyllic day quickly descends into a nightmare of the worst kind…
It has a running time of 80 minutes and is rated R by the MPAA.
