Magnolia Likely to Acquire Horror Anthology S-VHS

When S-VHS debuted at Sundance this month, it was without a distributor.  However, you could have guessed that at some point in the acquisitions game that Magnolia – the company that picked up VHS – would be a key player.  I figured it would be a “no duh” situation if the sequel was housed at Magnolia.

So, here we are with a report at Variety saying that Magnolia is closing in on its deal with the S-VHS team.  The company will likely emulate its VHS release model from last year, giving the sequel a late summer VOD bow and a fall limited theatrical run.  But that’s all unconfirmed.

V/H/S 2 Is In the Works, Directors Announced

Gareth Evans, Eduardo Sanchez, Jason Eisener, Simon Barrett, Timo Tjahjanto and Adam Wingard are set to contribute to V/H/S 2, says The Hollywood Reporter.  

The film is a sequel to this year’s anthology found footage flick V/H/S.

Evans, director of The Raid, and Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) are co-writing and co-directing their segments.  Wingard, who directed the wraparound segment in V/H/S, will tackle his own story this time.  Hobo With a Shotgun’s Eisener will direct a segment and Barrett is making his directorial debut with his own story.

Anthology Horror Film in the Works at Chiller

Could the horror genre finally be seeing an anthology horror film resurgence?  The format – long thought of a bad news by the Hollywood studio system – is making a comeback with titles like V/H/S and The ABCs of Death.  Chiller TV has commissioned an anthology film of its own entitled Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear and THR scored a breakdown of the filmmakers involved.

VHS

Two historically dubious filmmaking forms come together in V/H/S, a horror anthology comprised entirely of found-footage vignettes and which chillingly showcases both the breadth of interesting ideas still available to explore within the genre, and the considerable talent of some of its most promising filmmakers.
