V H S 2

USA, 2013 (MIFF 2013, Night Shift)

Director: Adam Wingard,Eduardo Sanchez,Gareth Huw Evans,Gregg Hale,Jason Eisener,Simon Barrett,Timo Tjahjanto

"The sequel to the found footage horror movie VHS is an incredible, exciting leap forward." – Badass Digest

V/H/S/2 seriously ups the ante as a whole new set of horror wunderkinds follow in the grisly footsteps of last year's VHS. When a PI searching for a missing kid enters the boy's home, he finds a room full of TVs and a stack of mysterious VHS tapes containing a series of increasingly terrifying tales: zombie POVs, blood-frenzied cults and 80s-era alien abduction abound.

Playing to great acclaim at Sundance and SXSW, V/H/S/2 features instalments by Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project), Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun, MIFF 11) and Adam Wingard (You're Next, MIFF 13), with Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre) and Gareth Evans (The Raid) providing the malevolent centrepiece. One for the hardest of horror fanatics, V/H/S/2 is bound to be the talk of the festival.

"A rare breed of anthology in which every segment is not only good, but cracking with creativity, even. And lots and lots and lots of blood." – Fangoria
