The quartet first worked together on a series of Interactive Adventures and a found footage short film called Mountain Devil Prank Fails Horribly for the Chad, Matt & Rob website.[5][6]

V/H/S[edit]

Radio Silence's segment of V/H/S is titled 10/31/98 and the story is set on Halloween as a group of friends go in search for a Halloween party.

According to an interview with Complex, Radio Silence was brought into the V/H/S fold after producer Brad Miska saw Mountain Devil Prank Fails Horribly. Their segment was shot over four days around Los Angeles in August 2011. [7]
