The annual horror anthology is back to instill more devastating terror (and possible motion sickness).
Last Halloween, we recommended that the "found footage" horror anthology V/H/S be added to your horror movie watching list for the month just as it was about to debut in theaters in limited release. A sequel was announced as being in the works in November and, already has made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival.
According to one critic, S-V/H/S is "an incredible, exciting step forward" from the original, while another exclaimed that the sequel was a "leaner, but totally crazier, gorier, scarier, wilder, funnier follow-up."all the scariest trailers

Move over, Creepshow.
What movie? The found-footage horror anthology V/H/S, which combines the efforts of some of the horror genre's finest new directors: Ti West (The Innkeepers, House of the Devil), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), Joe Swanberg (Silver Bullets), Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die), and the directing quartet known as Radio Silence. V/H/S follows a group of criminals hired to break in an abandoned house and find a rare piece of video tape. As the group watches tape after tape to find the one they need, they are party to a series of increasingly disturbing videos.
Why we recommend it: With October right around the corner, the time seems right as ever to watch a horror movie, as, pretty soon, the neighborhoods will be dressed with fake spiderwebs and cardboard gravestones. There was a time when horror anthologies were hard to come by, but after 2009's Trick 'r Treat, 2011's Chillerama, the subgenre is making a comeback. Horror anthologies make for an easily digestible horror movie since, if you don't like a particular story, another is shortly on its way. Along the way, however, V/H/S offers viewers a wide-ranging cross-section of genre fare that includes stories that deal with demons, ghosts, and other nasty horrors that go bump in the night.
What did the Critics Say? After debuting at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, HitFix called V/H/S "one of the scariest movies...in recent memory," while The Playlist said the movie "delivers the thrills and chills." Huffington Post recently said that V/H/S is "a found footage movie about found footage movies that takes the stagnant genre and makes it snort a line of bath salts as big as the Mason-Dixon." We're pretty sure that's an endorsement.
Where to watch it: V/H/S will open in limited release starting on Oct. 5, but can be enjoyed right now in the relative safety of your own home on Video-on-Demand. Check out the various VOD vendors here. watch the trailer >> Posted 09.21.12 by Ryan
A red band trailer for horror movie anthology V/H/S was released last month, but for those that couldn't view the NSFW footage, a new green band version and international trailer are now online.
V/H/S is yet another found-footage horror movie, though, this time, thankfully, there's a bit of a twist. Comprised of six different horror stories, the overarching storyline follows a group of petty thieves hired to steal rare piece of found footage from an abandoned house. There, they find a dead body and hundreds of tapes, and must search for the right one by watching several horrifying tapes filled with ghosts, vampires and other terrible things. The movie has already received favorable reviews from its screenings at the Sundance Film Festival and South By Southwest, but you can judge for yourself by viewing the trailers. watch the trailers >> Posted 07.10.12 by Ryan
Throughout its several years of development, Lionsgate's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hasn't had an easy time trying to make it onto the big screen. With three directors dropping out (David O. Russell, Mike White, Craig Gillespie), Grahame-Smith has had to remain patient throughout several "almost" scenarios for a potential adaptation of his best-selling mashup novel (which can also be safely credited to Jane Austen). A script originally adapted by Russell and rewritten by Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Fright Night writer Marti Noxon is in place. Back in March, Grahame-Smith said "there's still a will at Lionsgate to do it," and that he hoped a successful Snow White and the Huntsman might encourage another try.
Grahame-Smith has seen his own career blossom in Hollywood in the intervening years, writing the scripts for the recently released Dark Shadows and the upcoming adaptation of another of his mashup novels, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Yet, as Grahame-Smith admits in a recent interview with Bloody-Disgusting, the author-screenwriter admitted that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is still "languishing." read grahame-smith's comments and watch the NSFW trailer >> Posted 06.20.12 by Ryan
