Magnets tend to be bad for VHS tapes, which makes it kinda
ironic that the company named after one is on the verge of closing a deal to release
its second movie named after the medium.
that Magnolia Pictures is on the verge of signing to pick up S-VHS, presumably
to follow its predecessor V/H/S as a Magnet Releasing title. The stand-alone
sequel to the popular horror anthology includes segments directed by YOU’RE
NEXT’s Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and LOVELY
MOLLY’s Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN’s Jason Eisener and
the team of THE RAID: REDEMPTION’s Gareth Huw Evans and THE ABC’s OF DEATH’s
Timo Tjahjanto. S-VHS just played at the Sundance Film Festival to strong
response; see our review here.
