V/H/S Picked up by Magnolia

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the much talked-about horror film V/H/S will soon be making its way to theaters and VOD, thanks to Magnolia pictures. The found footage horror anthology has been one of the most talked-about films at Sundance, and is the first genre title to be acquired for distribution.

Synopsis: When a group of misfits is hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they discover more found footage than they bargained for.

The film was co-directed by Adam Wingard, Ti West, David Bruckner, Glenn McQuaid, Radio Silence, Joe Swanberg.

Word on the street is that V/H/S breathes new life and a whole lot of fun into the found footage genre, and reactions from the festival have been very positive - an audience member even left the theater and fainted during one of the screenings.

So psyched that this will be seeing distribution soon. Can't wait to see it!
