Recent horror release V/H/S was kind of a mixed bag, but that’s to be expected from anthology films that combine shorts from different filmmakers into a loosely connected whole. Regardless of which segments were your favorites, or which you thought didn’t work, it’s still pretty cool that V/H/S took little known filmmakers like the guys from Radio Silence and let them present their work alongside much-loved directors like Ti West and Joe Swanberg.
So, good news for horror fans and horror creators alike, V/H/S/2 is already in the works, and it’s already signed up some top notch directors.
Specifically who, though? THR has the scoop that Gareth Evans, the guy who made the coolest action movie in recent memory with The Raid, is teaming up with Macabre director Timo Tjahtjanto to make a segment, Eduardo Sanchez, the guy who got this whole found footage horror thing off the ground by making The Blair Witch Project, is co-directing a segment with his producing partner Gregg Hale. And, in addition to that, Hobo With a Shotgun director Jason Eisener is signed up for one, You’re Next helmer Adam Wingard is on board, and first time director Simon Barrett gets to make his debut among all of this top talent as well.
For those of you who haven’t yet seen the original, and, for some reason, haven’t already watched enough horror movies in the past month, you can catch V/H/S now in select theaters and on various VOD platforms.
