Given the tired state that horror’s currently mired in (this, that), I’m all for continuing a series that gives new and interesting filmmakers a chance to engage with the anthology format presented in VHS. So almost a year exactly to the date of that film’s Sundance premiere, its sequel S-VHS is gearing up for a premiere of its own at this year’s event. And now we have a trailer. Filmmakers this time include Gareth Evans (The Raid), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun) among others:
S-VHS as a video cassette format was slightly more advanced tech that allowed for better audio recording and improved picture over its predesscor. The format never took the market by storm, though it was a hit among amateur filmmakers of the late 80s / early 90s.
VHS is currently available on Netflix Instant. You have my strong recommendation to check it out with the lights off.
