V/H/S 2 will be released in UK and cinemas and on video on-demand on MOnday 14th October.
The sequel to the uneven yet scary horror anthology follows the same formula as its predecessor, combining several short films from a variety of filmmakers into one bumper set of chills.
Aiming to “breathe new life into the horror genre”, V/H/S 2 will again feature films from established and up-and-coming names within the horror genre. This time around, filmmakers will include Adam Wingard (You’re Next; A Horrible Way To Die), Gareth Evans (The Raid; Merantau), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun; The ABCs of Death), Eduardo Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project; Lovely Molly), Gregg Hale (The Blair Witch Project; Lovely Molly), Simon Barrett (You’re Next; A Horrible Way To Die) and Timo Tjahjanto (The ABCs of Death).
The sequel was shown at Film4 FrightFest this year and was well received by horror fans. Top of the billing is Safe Haven, a short film directed by The Raid’s Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto. The film follows a news crew who are granted access to the home of an Indonesian cult to report the mysterious goings-on.
While we had to wait for months until the theatrical and home entertainment release of the original V/H/S, V/H/S 2 has opted for the more revolutionary approach of a simultaneous theatrical and VOD and DVD release – one that only seems fitting given its titular nod towards the retro home entertainment format.
We’ll have a review for you on its UK release date.
