Magnet has revealed, via Yahoo! Movies, the Red Band trailer for the upcoming V/H/S/2. Like the first instalment, V/H/S 2 is a collection of found footage short films, all from different directors. The horror anthology — which features sections overseen by Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener, You’re Next director Adam Wingard, and Gareth Evans (of The Raid), will be available on demand on June 6 and arrives in cinemas July 12. Like most anthology films, some segments are uneven, but as Mark pointed out in his review, the film does its best work in the middle, when it displays some fine efforts from some real talent. You can check out the trailer below.
Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.
From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.
