S-VHS Trailer Creeps Online
You've Been Framed TO DEATH

The first stab at horror anthology V/H/S is only just arriving on these shores, and is in cinemas on Friday. But the sequel, S-VHS, has already been filmed, collected, edited and will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. The trailer is available above.

It all sounds a little like that old tape of Double Impact that hangs around Empire Towers and threatens anyone that dares go near it.

S-VHS doesn’t have a distribution deal yet, but we’d expect that to change during the festival. Sundance starts this weekend, and our Damon Wise will be there covering the whole thing.

The first segment is a spooky chiller, followed by the Blair Witch director's awesome and funny segment. Gareth Evans proves he is one of the world's premier maverick directors with the next segment, which is totally unique and awesome beyond description. The final act is unsurprisingly the weakest af More
