The horror movie so terrifying it made audiences SICK: Ambulances called to screening at Sundance festival

Two movie-goers had to be treated by paramedics after they experienced adverse and shocking reactions to graphic scenes in a new horror film at the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival.
One viewer was watching a midnight screening of V/H/S last week when he ran from the cinema screen, collapsed and began to suffer seizures, according to the film’s co-writer Simon Barrett.
While he was being treated, his girlfriend also ran into the lobby and began to vomit. The night before, another woman reportedly left in tears because she could not stand the suspense.

Co-writer Simon Barrett admits that 'while very funny in parts, the film is also quite intense and gory'


The lurid accounts of movie-goers passing out will no doubt lead some to suspect that this may have been an attempt to court publicity - but the film's production team insist what happened was real.

Producer Roxanne Benjamin, posting on Twitter as the drama unfolded at the film festival in Park City, Utah, said they were forced to call ambulances and insisted it was a 'scary' experience.

'It was scary and not fun, and everyone is grateful the guy and his girlfriend are OK,’ she wrote. ‘And they wanted to go back in the theatre!
'One of the managers for the theatre was sitting near the guy, and said he just got real real pale and stood up and bobbed and weaved his way out the door.
'Once he was in the lobby, he kind of turned around and collapsed. He seemed to go into a seizure and so we called 911.'

Ms Benjamin said the two were treated for about half an hour, but did not need to go to hospital.

Speaking from the festival, Mr Barrett told MSNBC that the man became ill while watching a particularly 'intense series of scenes' that include graphic injuries to a person.
He said it was not the first time that V/H/S had created such a reaction, adding that in a screening the night before during the same scene another young woman left the theatre in tears.
She spent the rest of the film in the lobby. The filmmakers spoke to her briefly and she told them 'I just got scared', but she didn't return to the theatre, Mr Barrett said.

Vertigo-inducing scenes: Like The Blair Witch Project, pictured, there is some shaky camera work in V/H/S
The film, acquired by Magnolia Pictures for more than $1million, follows a group of petty criminals looking for a VHS tape in a remote and rundown house, only to find a trove of recorded nastiness.

Producer Roxanne Benjamin
Like The Blair Witch Project, also a Sundance midnight movie that kicked off the genre in 1999, there are some vertigo-inducing moments of shaky camera work in V/H/S, particularly in the beginning.
The gang of criminals watch a variety of homemade VHS tapes containing supernatural moments.
At one point, a fleeing character tumbles down a flight of steps and gets a fracture in his wrist - the white bone jutting out through the skin as the predatory fiend appears at the top of the staircase.
Mr Barrett said that the segment, 'while very funny in parts, is also quite intense and gory,' and noted that the film's handheld camera style and other factors 'can probably be a bit difficult to take'.

A POV, found footage horror film from the perspective of America's top genre filmmakers. A group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house in the countryside and acquire a rare tape. Upon searching the house, the guys are confronted with a dead body, a hub of old televisions and an endless supply of cryptic footage, each video stranger than the last.




it got an 8.6 might have to check this sh*t out yo.

I wouldn't be opposed to a re-make or something. The gore now looks cartoonish.

An 8. fu*king 6??

I saw the trailers & TV spots thought nothing of it, a.ssumed it's just your run of the mill horror flick with the audience overreacting but I really might have to check this out. Like Omega said Sundance has been buzzzzzin about this film, but I honestly thought nothing of it




:hmm:
