Jason Eisener Talks V/H/S/2, Anthologies, Basing a Film on His Childhood Nightmares, Designing an Alien, His Use of Color, and More

Opening in theaters this week is V/H/S/2, the follow up to the 2012 festival hit V/H/S, which presented a collection of POV shorts as the disturbing set of footage found in an abandoned house full of VHS tapes. The second installment brings in a new round of filmmakers, including Jason Eisener, to continue the mythology of the mysterious tape collection. Eisener got his break in the biz when his fake trailer Hobo with a Shotgun was selected to accompany the Canadian release of Grindhouse and subsequently turned into a feature-length gore fest of the same name. His contribution to V/H/S/2, "Alien Abduction Slumber Party", carries his trademark funhouse sensibilities, but is unique for its lack of onscreen violence. V/H/S/2 also features shorts from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto,Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale, Adam Wingard, andSimon Barrett. READ MORE...
