Took me a few days to digest this first pic from the upcoming V/H/S sequel, now titled S-VHS. Observe below and we’ll discuss after:
Looking kind of like a first-person video game, seems like someone is about to fight off a bloodied up little boy, or man who looks like a boy. And from the looks of the marks on his body, there’s some ritual/possible devil worshipping stuff going down. This is where I speculate on one pic and try to make it more interesting than it is. It’s a slow news day (shrug). Anywho, S-VHS has begun filming and the plot is similar to the first, with a pair of investigators discovering a VHS tape while looking for a missing student. Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project), and Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun) are among the new directors contributing this time around.
V/H/S was a bit of a letdown for me, but still did enough right to get me excited about the news that dropped today. Due to the popular response and mostly positive reviews of the first, V/H/S/2 is coming to bring us more anthology madness! New sequel means new directors for the individual stories, so coming on board this time are: Gareth Evans (The Raid – btw, see this if you haven’t already), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly), Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), and Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre). In addition, Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard (You’re Next) will be returning. This new horror journey follows a similar structure as the first, and will have a pair of investigators discovering a VHS tape while searching for a missing student. Shooting is taking place now, so stay tuned for more details!
