The little indie horror flick V/H/S was one of the freakiest movies of 2012, and the first red-band trailer for the sequel promises to up the insanity (assuming that’s possible).

Set up as an anthology horror concept framed around freaky VHS tapes, the sequel takes the premise and runs with it — flashing clips of monster attacks, freaky creatures and a truly unsettling scene of a guy getting run over (from his own perspective). Basically, imagine the scariest scenes from a half-dozen horror movies, then chop them all together into one.

Here’s the synopsis:

Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes S-VHS, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.

The film opens on-demand June 6 and in theaters July 12.
