Watch the opening scene from Southbound, a new anthology horror film (NSFW)

0

In 2012, V/H/S helped kick off a mini-boom in anthology horror films, eventually spawning two sequels of its own. Anthology films are typically hit or miss from short to short (or a big miss overall), though at their best, anthology horror movies are generally a nice showcase for the various filmmakers involved.

Southbound, a new anthology horror film that debuted at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, looks like it could be more hit than miss. The opening scene of the film has been released online and looks like a promising and eerie set-up.

Give the opening scene of Southbound a watch below.

The segment above was directed by Radio Silence, a collective also responsible for the Halloween party bit in the first V/H/S. The other directors of Southbound are Roxanne Benjamin (producer on the first two V/H/S films), David Bruckner (The Signal), and Patrick Horvath (The Pact 2).

Here’s a synopsis:

On a desolate stretch of desert highway, weary travelers–two men on the run from their past, a band on their way to the next gig, a man struggling to get home, a brother in search of his long-lost sister and a family on vacation–are forced to confront their worst fears and darkest secrets in these interwoven tales of terror and remorse on the open road.

Southbound hits theaters on February 5, and VOD on February 9.

Check out the excellent poster for Southbound and the film’s trailer below.
