A new poster for the upcoming found-footage anthology V/H/S premiered today at movies.com. The film, with segments from Adam Wingard (You're Next), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), Radio Silence, David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg (Autoerotic), and Ti West (The House of the Devil) harkens back to the dark ages of the 1980s and 1990s, when there were no DVDs and many of the best (and worst) horror films were only available as bootlegs, passed between compatriots at conventions or smuggled between friends in study hall. The new poster honors this tradition of stacks and stacks of grubby video tapes. Check out the full image after the jump.
Official 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."
