Gareth Huw Evans And Timo Tjahjanto Join V/H/S 2

More directors have been enlisted to bring top-loader scares to a cinema near you. Out of Indonesia Gareth Huw Evans (The Raid) and Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre) will contribute a segment. Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project and Lovely Molly) will contribute a segment along with his producing partner Gregg Hale and Molly writer Jamie Nash. Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun) and Adam Wingard (You're Next) have their own segments. And Wingard's partner in crime, Simon Barrett, will make his directorial debut.

The first movie 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.

The Collective and Bloody Disgusting are producing the second film and Wingard and Barrett are now joining Site B's Zak Zeman and Bloody Disgusting's Tom Owen as executive producers. Word from on high (Gee, I wonder...) is that the script for Evans and Timo's segment is awesome.

    hope its a step up from the dogshit mysoginistic bullshit that was the first one.

  • I've read the script Gareth and Timo's segment, which is AWESOME, and talked a little bit with Jason, Adam and Simon about theirs and my expectations are very high.

    Here's hoping they get Erik Matti in one of these things...

  • Ha! Anything that keeps Erik working is a good thing, I think, but he's got plenty going on right now. One film just released, the Vesuvius short just released, one feature deep in post (which nobody really seems to know anything about yet), and crime thriller OJT starting production in a couple weeks ...
