Weekend(?) Upcoming Horror Flick Extravaganza: V/H/S

Rounding out this week's Upcoming Horror Flick Extravaganza is one of my most anticipated flicks of the year. I love anthologies, I love VHS, and a local Atlanta director (David Bruckner; The Signal) is involved, so this is a perfect storm to grab my interest. First of all, look at that poster. How freakin' cool is that poster? That's my favorite poster of the year so far by a long shot. I want one of those BAD. Actually, it makes me want to do something like that with my VHS collection, but I'm way too lazy for that.

Synopsis: When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one, they are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last. Bringing together some of the top filmmakers in the game today, this wickedly conceived horror anthology sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock, and downright brutality—instantly distinguishing itself from a sea of lackluster found-footage horror flicks. The diverse and deviously creative minds behind V/H/S shatter any preconceived notions about the genre, making it feel inventive and captivating once again.

Here's the red band trailer:

Magnet is gonna be unleashing this bad boy through Magnolia On-Demand on 8/31, and in select theaters on 10/5. I, for one, can't wait.
