Main article: Chad, Matt & Rob

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.[6][7]


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. [8]

Devil's Due[edit]

In 2014, the group's horror thriller Devil's Due was released by 20th Century Fox.


Southbound premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and was picked up for distribution by the Orchard for release in 2016.[9]
