According to the official synopsis of V/H/S, this new horror anthology concerns petty criminals who are hired to retrieve a rare piece of footage from a rundown house, and as they search for the right one, they “are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.”
That set-up is confirmed by the movie’s first trailer — even if the precise respective natures of said horrors are not (and a good thing too). What we can say is that the action-packed red band clip features a creepy mask, a flick knife, a door moving about all by itself, a vampire (maybe), a ghost (also maybe), mysterious hand prints appearing on a wall, and the dialog line, “You’re all going to f—in’ die up here.”
Oh, and blood. Lots and lots of blood.
V/H/S will be available on VOD on Aug. 31 and will debut in theaters on Oct. 5.
