Synopsis

Just when fans thought they’d seen everything the found footage horror genre had to offer, along comes V/H/S, a genuinely innovative and terrifying movie that had audiences at this year’s Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals jumping out of their seats in fear. And now it’s Canada’s turn! Be sure to see the film everyone’s talking about at this Canadian Premiere Screening hosted exclusively by Toronto After Dark!

The brainchild of Brad Miska from Bloody-Disgusting, V/H/S brings together the combined talents of six different cutting edge genre filmmakers including Ti West (THE INNKEEPERS, HOUSE OF THE DEVIL), Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD), Adam Wingard (A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE, YOU’RE NEXT),  David Bruckner (THE SIGNAL), Joe Swanberg (SILVER BULLETS), and the filmmaking quartet Radio Silence.

When a group of lowlifes are hired to break into a house to steal a home video, they find themselves with more found footage than they bargained for. After entering, the thieves discover not one, but a whole collection of home made tapes, and the only way to find the one they’re looking for, is to watch them all. It’s the five tapes viewed and what happens to the thieves, that makes up the story of V/H/S.

What makes this film so refreshing and exhilarating is that as well as being genuinely scary with some shocking twists, each of the five tapes, thanks to the different directors involved, has a distinct flavour to it. Each one also involves a different type of horror.  Fans can look forward to in no particular order: supernatural hauntings, malevolent aliens, satanic rituals and blood-sucking vampire-like creatures to name a few!  You may not know what’s coming on screen next, but one thing’s for sure with V/H/S, you’re in for one very fun, very scary ride!
