STORY: 'The Raid', 'Blair Witch' Directors Sign Up for 'V/H/S/2' (Exclusive)

Gareth Evans, who directed The Raid, and Eduardo Sanchez, director of The Blair Witch Project and Lovely Molly, co-write and co-directed segments while Adam Wingard, the helmer behind You’re Next and A Horrible Way to Die, directed a full segment. Simon Barrett, the writer of Wingard’s pics who also penned two segments of V/H/S, made his directorial debut with one of the stories.

Other directors include Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Gregg Hale, and Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun). The movie, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and screened at SXSW last night was produced and financed by the Collective in association with genre brand Bloody Disgusting.

V/H/S followed a group of students hired to break into a desolate house to find a lost VHS tape, paving the way for the movie to go into a series of found-footage stories directed by up-and-coming genre filmmakers. The new movie follows a similar structure, with a pair of investigators discovering a tape while looking for a student.
