Magnolia Pictures has bought the North American rights to Sundance Midnight entry “V/H/S.”

A “found footage” anthology of twisted tales all recorded on VHS tapes a group of robbers watch during a robbery, the shorts were directed by Adam Wingard, Glenn McQuiad, Radio Silence, David Bruckner, Joe Swamberg and Ti West.

After watching the movie, Eric Kohn wrote that "V/H/S" delivers “the creepiest first-person horror movie since the original ‘Paranormal Activity’ while pushing the genre in a fresh direction with the sheer visceral energy of its execution.”

With raucous screenings not only in Park City but also when it screened in Salt Lake City, the movie’s scary cred was locked when it was reported one audience member had to leave a screening during the first short. A day after, one of the directors, Ti West, tweeted, “All horror movies should be shown at high altitudes.”

Magnolia’s genre arm Magnet Releasing will release the film.

WME negotiated the deal.


I'm a fan of Ti West since The House of the Devil so I'm looking forward to this. V/H/S won't hit theaters until Sep or Oct though.

I don't always talk about bad movies, but when I do, I prefer

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
