Good god. The first teaser trailer for S-VHS - the sequel to last year's ingenious horror anthology V/H/S (available now on Netflix streaming) just hit and it's a whopping assault to the senses.

This time around, viewers can expect segments directed by Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), Gareth Huw Evans (The Raid: Redemption) and Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Blair Witch Project architects Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale and Adam Wingard (You're Next), plus a wraparound segment from You’re Next writer Simon Barrett.



Official Synopsis:
Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

From the demented minds that brought you last year's V/H/S comes S-VHS, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes-a second generation with no loss of quality.



The Sundance premiere of S-VHS will take place at Park City’s Library Center Theatre at 11:45 p.m. on Jan. 19.

Head over to EW to see the teaser for yourself.
