Not long now until the UK release of V/H/S in cinemas (18th January) and on DVD and Blu-ray (28th January). To whet your appetite for this horror anthology treat, distributor Momentum Pictures has given us this exclusive clip from Glenn McQuaid's section of the film, Tuesday the 17th.
A small group of misfit friends and petty crooks are hired by a mysterious man to break into a derelict suburban house with the sole purpose of finding and stealing a rare videotape. Their only clue to identifying the tape in question is, “You’ll know it when you see it.”
However, on arrival at the house they soon realize the job isn’t as straightforward as they imagined. In one room they discover the lifeless body of a middle-aged man sitting in an armchair, facing a wall of television sets and a stack of VHS cassettes. A similar bounty of tapes is found in the basement, none of which bears any obvious markings to suggest it is the prize they are seeking. As they search through the tapes, playing them in turn, they are treated to a succession of graphic and apparently genuine video recordings, each one more shocking and bizarre than the last.
The classic anthology horror movie is given a contemporary and brilliantly visceral spin by some of the hottest new directors working in the genre today: Adam Wingard (You’re Next; A Horrible Way To Die), David Bruckner (The Signal), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead), Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes The Stairs) and Ti West (The Innkeepers; Cabin Fever 2: Spring Break; The House Of The Devil).
