V/H/S is a POV, found footage horror film from the perspective of America's top genre filmmakers. In 'V/H/S', a group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house in the countryside and acquire a rare tape. Upon searching the house, the guys are confronted with a dead body, a hub of old televisions and an endless supply of cryptic footage, each video stranger and more inexplicable than the last...
First there was V/H/S, then there was S-VHS, now comes the upgrade in technology we've all been waiting for, the very creepy DV! We have an exclusive look at this new found footage thriller written, directed by, and starring legendary filmmaker Evan Jacobs as a serial killer who documents his many murders with an old DV camera, only to find that he is being haunted by the spirit of one of his past victims. Check out the trailer and poster for this scary first installment of what is a planned trilogy before it arrives in select theaters this fall.
Lensed in complete secrecy in various locales around California, filmmaker Evan Jacobs wanted the film to have the same vibe as the movies (V/H/S and S-VHS) that inspired it."Horror allows you to move in many vast directions. As this movie took shape, I really thought about the medium of VHS. I had shot many films using that format, and then suddenly DV came and expanded on the tape medium even more. If one is following the current films logically...Then it would seem DV, at least in an accessible sense to consumers, would be the next step.Read More
The horror anthology V/H/S is comprised of six short films made by a host of celebrated directors. One of those filmmakers is actually of a quartet of young directors known as Radio Silence (a.k.a. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Chad Villella, and Justin Martinez). They make their feature debut with V/H/S, after making a popular series of viral videos through their YouTube channel, which has over 60 million views. Their segment of V/H/S entitled 10/31/98, which they wrote, directed, edited, shot, and starred in, follows a group of friends who think they're going to a Halloween party... and get much more than they bargained for. I recently had the chance to speak with these talented multi-hyphenates over the phone. Here's what they had to say.
I'm always curious about how these anthologies come together. When you were first approached for this, was this an idea you already had for something else?Read More

If you are VOD suave, you can watch V/H/S right this very second. If you're old, analogue, or simply a technophobe, you'll have to wait until October 5th to see this critically acclaimed horror anthology in cinemas.

Magnet Releasing has commissioned five pieces of promo art inspired by this Halloween-ready treat, with the second two posters being revealed today. First up, we get a one-sheet inspired by Radio Silence's short '10/31/98', painted by Jason Latour.
