Three letter acronyms abound

Back in December it was announced that one of the best horror films of last year, V/H/S, was going to get a limited edition release on actual VHS tapes. The downside fro anyone living outside of the UK was that it was only coming out there. Now, however, we've received official word that the VHS version of V/H/S is landing in the U.S. as well, and it looks awesome. 

Hot on the tails of the teaser for S-VHS, the box are, which you can see above, is a bit different from the UK version, which you can see below because of what boxes look like in the two countries. UK gets the nice plastic one while we'll be getting a totally awesome, pre-worn cardboard version. I have to say I like ours better, but maybe that's because I didn't grow up with fancy plastic VHS boxes. Those Brits are so spoiled. A cardboard slip is all I need to protect my movies!

No word on the release date in the press release and Amazon doesn't have a listing yet, but we'll keep you up to date.
