Check Out a Bootlegged Clip from V/H/S
So today in the mail we got a large box. Inside was a VCR wrapped in blood-stained paper along with an equally stained box containing an unmarked video cassette. Of course we immediately hooked it up to see what all this was about. Read on for our findings.
Upon playing the tape, we realized that we had scored a clip from the long awaited Sundance sensation V/H/S (review)! So then we did what any fine red-blooded American would do... we bootlegged it for you! The uncovered clip is from David Bruckner’s segment, “Amateur Night.”
Magnolia has announced that they're planning to roll the horror anthology film out on VOD August 30th 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.
