When it comes to horror, I'll be the first to admit that I'm a bit of a wuss. And looking at the trailer for this super-gory anthology, it's certainly one that I'm gonna skip. But if lo-fi horror is your cup of tea, it looks like V/H/S will fill your cup to the brim.
This found-footage anthology, which slayed Sundance audiences, is coming from a handful of bleeding-edge directors: Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die), Simon Barrett (You're Next, Dead Birds), Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg (Silver Bullets) and Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead).
Take a look ... like I said, I'm a wuss, so you're on your own.
Here's the 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.
V/H/S will premiere on video on-demand on Aug. 31 and roll out for a limited theatrical run starting on Oct. 5.
