The anthology horror movie V/H/S debuted at Sundance last year to brilliant early reviews, and almost a year later to the day, the anthology sequel, V/H/S/2, returned to Utah to equally promising praise.
The film has continued on the festival circuit in recent weeks, and with only a few more to go before its early VOD release, ahead of its theatrical rollout, Magnet have debuted the terrific and very red-band first trailer online.
Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his abandoned house and find another collection of mysterious VHS tapes. In viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be terrifying motives behind the student’s disappearance.

Viva la película de terror antología!
Is that right? After five years of Spanish throughout high school, I still just went to Google Translate for that shit. But anyway, for those who don’t understand my (probably gibberish) Spanish, it (most likely doesn’t) means “Long live the horror anthology!” Why am I so excited? Well, partially because I didn’t think this craze would actually stay strong in today’s horror world, and partially because V/H/S/2 proves the concept is only producing better and better content. V/H/S and The ABCs Of Death tested the waters, wetted viewers whistles, but V/H/S/2 took the concept to extremely more brutal places knowing the market for over-the-top horror is salivating over original content these days – something I pray the newly announced sequel to The ABCs Of Death tackles even more ferociously.
I was elated to see that »

Found footage has become something of a staple within the horror genre over the past few years, and now audiences are crying out for something more than just one long film using this style. They want anthologies as well, the piecing together of lots of different styles and subject matter all presented in a single film. This was especially the case with 2012's V/H/S, which used the story of a group of criminals having to steal a tape from a house, but unsure as to which one they were meant to acquire, they had to watch a series of shorts, each directed by a different horror director.
Whilst personally I was not a fan of the first instalment, someone has felt that the world needs a sequel, and below is the trailer for this offering, V/H/S/2, which features the directing talents of Simon Barrett (A Horrible Way to Die »

Magnet Releasing has just unleashed a new trailer for V/H/S/2, the sequel to last year's popular found-footage anthology, which you can watch below courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. It's loaded with new footage, including a fair amount of splatter (and a brief shot of boobies, so it's not work-safe). They also unveiled the new promo stills you see here. V/H/S/2 marks the return of writers/directors Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard (You're Next), joined by Blair Witch Project veterans Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale, as well as Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Gareth Huw Evans (The Raid) and Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun). It's slated for theatrical release on iTunes/On Demand June 6th, and will see a limited theatrical run on July 12th. Check out the trailer now! V H S 2 - Red Band Trailer »

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. »
When “V/H/S” came out last year, reaction was… mixed, to put it lightly. Like most anthology films, it was wildly uneven. But it seems the concept is just too irresistible for other filmmakers to resist and thus, we have “V/H/S 2.” Originally titled “S-v/H/S”, the sequel premiered at Sundance this past January to a much more positive reception than the first (read our review). Now a red band trailer has just been posted online over at Yahoo and there’s only one way to describe it: utter mayhem. Like the first one, “V/H/S 2” is a collection of found footage short films all from different directors. Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are the only holdovers from “V/H/S,” with the rest including Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale (the former of whom birthed the found footage horror genre with “The Blair Witch Project”), Gareth Evans (“The Raid”), Timo Tjahjanto, »

We wouldn’t want to give the impression that V/H/S/2 is an entirely laugh-free zone. But this apocalyptically-minded horror anthology sequel certainly takes a more serious approach to the end of the world than out-and-out apocalypse comedies like the recently released It’s A Disaster and the forthcoming This Is The End.
V/H/S/2 — which features sections overseen by Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener and You’re Next director Adam Wingard, among others — will be available on demand on June 6 and arrives in cinemas July 12. You can check out the gory, offensive, and just plain weird, »

Here's a great way to start off your Thursday. The first Nsfw trailer for "V/H/S/2," the sequel to the found footage anthology that scared the crap out of us last year, just dropped over at Yahoo! Movies. What the preview emphasizes—aside from how freaking scary this thing looks—is the serious talent they've lined up to direct segments for the second go around.
The consensus coming out of Sundance this year was that "V/H/S/2," then called "S-v/H/S," is much scarier than its predecessor and uses the found footage format to greater effect.
We'll find out when "V/H/S/2" hits VOD on June 6 and theaters on July 12.

Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the first film, I have to say I’m really looking forward to the next installment in the anthology series. V/H/S/2 debuted earlier this year as S-vhs at the Sundance Film Festival and the universal opinion seemed to be that the film was a great improvement over the former set of horror shorts. V/H/S/2 delivers a similar setup to the former film with a wrap-around story connecting four separate found footage short films that will sure to get your adrenaline going. A new red-band trailer for the film will give you an idea of what’s in store with these new segments directed by Adam Wingard, Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale, Gareth Evans (The Raid) and Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), and Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun). It’s clearly Nsfw. Enjoy!

You can read my review for it here.

Ritualistic suicides, hideous creatures, and lots of blood and nudity can be found in the red band trailer for V/H/S/2. This follow-up to last year's horror anthology V/H/S features a much different story involving pagan worship, along with a fresh crew of directors, including Simon Barrett (You're Next), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), and Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption) clickHere to watch the explicit red band trailer, only if you're over the age of 18, then check out the latest photos.
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. »
After completely loathing the sloppy horror anthology V/H/S, I was planning on sidestepping its sequel, despite the praise it gained out of its Sundance premiere. But even more buzz grew out of SXSW, with horror fans cheering the inclusion of The Raid's Gareth Evans into V/H/S/2's batch of directors. When this omnibus of terror made it to the Tribeca Film Festival, I was convinced to bite the bullet and gave it a shot. And, man, am I glad I did. (Read my review here.) While V/H/S veterans Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett return with new tales of monsters and mayhem, they are joined by an enticing slate of noteworthy filmmakers, including the aforementioned Evans, Hobo With a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, ABCs of Death contributor Timo Tjahjanto, and Blair Witch Project's helmer Eduardo Sanchez and producer Gregg Hale. Within the snappy form »

Hannibal, Season 1, Episode 7: “Sorbet”
Directed by James Foley
Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC
The search for the Chesapeake Ripper continues, as “Sorbet” begins with a rundown of the Ripper’s nine victims. Will (Hugh Dancy) lectures his class, analyzing the mind of the killer as Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) watches from a distance. They know the killer tends to kill in threes, humiliating his victims in the process. Will profiles the Ripper, describing him as someone who is consistently theatrical, and who sees his victims as pigs, not people, displaying their corpses with a sense of mockery. If there was any doubt as to whether Hannibal was the Ripper, or not, this week lays to rest any uncertainty.
Last week’s “Entree” focussed primarily on Jack; every episode prior centred heavily on Graham, but “Sorbet” is all about Hannibal Lecter »

Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival – it takes place this year between July 18 and August 6 and has always been about more than just the films. They offer plenty of panel discussions and master classes every year, and last year’s edition introduced the Frontières International Co-Production Market, uniting North American, European, and Australasian talent and funders in an initiative focused specifically on fostering genre film productions and relationships. Noteworthy projects from the inaugural edition included new works from seasoned filmmakers such as Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator) and Bruce McDonald (Pontypool), as well as up-and-coming talent like Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution), Paul Campion (The Devil’s Rock), Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun), and Jorge Michel Grau (We Are What We Are). At the Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous – a sort of three-day industry cocktail party – professional introductions were made, and many of the projects found co-producers and/or international sales agents. »
