Editor Chris Alexander muses on one of actor John Hurt’s strangest films
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.
