Simon Barrett offered V/H/S fans a glimpse at an alternate ending of the film recently in the form of a still, and we have it for you right here. Check it out along with an explanation of why it didn’t fit and was cut. Dig it!

Barrett, who penned both the wrap, “Tape 56,” and Joe Swanberg’s “The Strange Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger,” shared this: “For your confusion/indifference, here is a still image from a deleted scene we shot for V/H/S. It will NOT be on the DVD, etc. The photo looks cool, but the scene ultimately didn’t fit the film.

V/H/S (review) is available On Demand NOW with a limited theatrical run to follow beginning October 5th. For more info keep your eyes on the V/H/S Facebook page.

Segment directors include Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Pop Skull), Simon Barrett (You’re Next, Dead Birds, Read Sands), Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Roost, The Innkeepers), David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg (Silver Bullets), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), along with Radio Silence, two of whom were part of the YouTube sensations known as Chad, Matt and Rob (Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Chad Villella).

When a group of petty criminals are 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.

    I assume this would have somehow given the “Tape 56” wrap-around segment a proper conclusion. Too bad they didn’t include that to give “Tape 56” some kind of closure, rather than ending on the final segment.

    of course the alt. ending won’t be on the dvd/bluray, horror movies always get the shit end of the special features spectrum. everyone get ready for mundane commentaries/interviews with maybe a behind-the-scenes spot.

    Personally, I would have prefered a black screen with the text ‘We are all very sorry!’ in white (or yellow).
