V/H/S Poster: The Sundance Horror Hit is Coming This Fall
The horror anthology V/H/S was one of the freshest genre discoveries to come out of Sundance '12, and this fall it finally arrives in theaters and on VOD. Revel in the found-footage conceit — done particularly well here, spanning short segments by the likes of Adam Wingard, Ti West, Joe Swanberg, and more filmmakers to keep on your radar — with a look at the official poster, itself a clever, cryptic spin on the old hand-marked VHS tapes some folks still have lurking in dusty closets and basements.
Of course, most vintage mystery tapes don't house footage of untold horrors like the ones "documented" in V/H/S — I hope. Over the course of six segments (tied together by a set-up about a gang of punks tasked with breaking into a house) surprises abound, which I'll leave for you to discover.
Head to Movies.com for the poster premiere, where you can view a high-res version of the poster and pore over the meaning of each VHS label in the design... which reveals far more dated tapes than what is shown in the film. What does that mean? HOW MANY HORRORS HAVE WE YET TO DISCOVER??
V/H/S will be released On-Demand via Magnolia on August 31 in theaters on October 5.
