Magnolia Gets 'V/H/S'

Indiewire By Jason Guerrasio | Indiewire January 26, 2012 at 12:51PM

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.

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.
