Gareth Evans Set For V/H/S 2

Gareth Evans

He broke through in a big way (mostly through walls) this year with The Raid, but Gareth Evans is looking to prove he can terrify us with more than fast fists and astounding action. Evans has joined the cadre of directors contributing to horror anthology V/H/S 2.

Eduardo Sanchez, of the original Blair Witch Project and Lovely Molly, is also aboard, along with Hobo With A Shotgun’s Jason Eisener, Gregg Hale, Adam Wingard, Simon Barrett, and Timo Tjahjanto, who will co-direct with Evans.

Following a similar pattern to the first film’s framing method, the new movie will see detectives breaking into a suspect’s house to find evidence while searching for a missing student. They discover a hub of recording equipment and a series of tapes that hold the various horrors. Shooting is taking place in Los Angeles, Maryland, Nova Scotia, British Columbia and Indonesia, where Evans is also cracking on with the sequel to The Raid, currently titled Berandal. According to the man himself, he's already shot his V/H/S contribution.

But hold on, there, Empire, we hear you saying. A sequel? The first film has yet to haunt my multiplex. What gives? Well, you’ll be able to watch the original in UK cinemas from January 18 next year. Take a look at the trailer below.

Evans, Sanchez and Eisener have got me sold already. Although if this interferes with production of Eisener's Street Fighter/Bloodsport/Riki-Oh style film he has planned I'll be nonplussed. More

RE: VHS?? Seriously, the worst film I've ever seen
L: Jamie_M Was so unlucky to see VHS at a horror film festival last weekend. It's literally the worst thing I've ever seen. How can a horror movie be scary when you and half the audience are breaking your sh#t laughing at how terrible it is. People are actually getting paid to make a sequel to this,,, dear god what's wrong with the world? his. I'd read some decent stuff before having the misfortune to see it. Quite awful. More
