Yesterday we posted a great trailer for Peter Strickland’s suspenseful thriller (a film that was pretty well received at Fantastic Fest last year). But if you need something with a little more punch, direct your eyes to this trailer for the sequel to the infamous horror anthology V/H/S, dubbed simply V/H/S/ 2 (or S-V/H/S if you prefer its cute techno-themed chronological moniker). As the first film was a scattered but highly effective fright fest, this sequel holds nothing back and really, really goes for the throat…and every major organ while they’re at it. So if you favored V/H/S even in the least then this trailer to the improved upon sequel (check out Andrew’s review of it from the Boston Independent Film Fest) is sure to please…and shock.
But be very, very aware. This is a RED BAND trailer if we ever saw one. This is so entirely NSFW we’ll spell it out for you one more time. This is Not Safe For Work. Now enjoy!!
Wow! Told you it was brutal didn’t we? This is a leaner, meaner (much meaner actually) follow up that shows strong signs of life for this series in the future. Between this and Drafthouse Films‘ much lauded The ABCs of Death, these anthologies can offer new types of scares and push the boundaries of the genre using this scaled back but condensed narrative structure. Well, at the very least, things are looking good so far.
New to this series are directors are Adam Wingard (You’re Next), Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun), Gareth Evans (The Raid), Timo Tjahjanto (The ABCs of Death), Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project) and from the first film Simon Barrett. V/H/S/2 is slated for theatrical release this Spring on July 12th. However, if you can’t wait that long it will get a VOD release on June 6th.
