Product Description

V/H/S is a point of view, found-footage horror film from the perspective of America's top genre filmmakers. In V/H/S, 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 and more inexplicably terrifying than the last...

Few cinematic innovations have flamed out as rapidly as the found-footage horror film, with the genuine high points (The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, [REC]) quickly drowned out by scads of imitators mainly intent on cutting their budgets by ditching the tripods. Boasting an impressive assortment of low-budget creative talent, the unusually overt first-person compilation V/H/S avoids the majority of the genre's duplication errors, cannily utilizing the anthology format to quickly get to the good stuff. Director Adam Wingard (You're Next) gets things rolling with a framing device involving a home-invasion crew discovering a cache of mysterious videotapes, segueing into the five other vignettes. David Bruckner, one of the three filmmakers behind The Signal, brings a primo EC Comics feel to his segment, a cautionary hookup tale for the reality-TV generation. Next up is slow-burn specialist Ti West (House of the Devil), who contributes a romantic travelogue gone extremely wrong, with an ironic resolution that might have even jaded gorehounds wincing a bit. Glenn McQuaid, whose previous film I Sell the Dead sported a sly gallows humor, unfortunately follows with the only real dud of the bunch, a spoofy maniac-in-the-woods effort that boasts a cool monster, but little else that resonates. Thankfully, director Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs) gets things back on the good foot with his ingeniously low-tech segment, a haunted apartment saga told entirely via Skype. Effective as the majority of its parts are, though, V/H/S ultimately proves to be saving its best for last, via a writing/directing collective known as Radio Silence, who deliver a Halloween story that goes wonderfully for broke. Packing creaks and groans into its scant running time at a rate that shames most modern creature features, it serves as an outstanding example of both the high and low registers of the genre. While found footage may not be the future of horror as was once proclaimed, this combo pack shows that there's still some life in them bones. --Andrew Wright

V/H/S is kind of like "Creepshow" meets "The Blair Witch Project" and IMHO it works out pretty well. Our main story (and set up from which to tell the rest of the stories) centers around four no-good wannabe punks. They spend their days committing juvenille crimes like vandalizing private property and terrorizing women. We feel little sympathy for these guys as they look to be at least in their late 20s but are committing petty crimes one would expect teens to commit. Anyway, they are hired by some mysterious porn broker to break into a house where an old man lives and steal a certain VHS tape. What is on the tape? They don't know, but sure as heck going to make copies of it so they can later profit even more from this theft. They find at least a dozen tapes, so in order to find the one they're looking for they begin playing them all. One by one, each tape tells a POV story and are seemingly unrelated. It left me wondering where the old guy gets these tapes.

The first tape they check shows the story of three college age guys through a new pair of spy-cam glasses. Their aim is to find some unwitting female night club patrons, take them back to their motel room and film themselves having sex. One of the girls they choose seems a bit odd, and as she shows more and more signs that tell the guys she isn't quite normal, we learn she has the designs on one of the guys in particular. The second tape shows the rather dreary second honeymoon of a couple of twenty-somethings as they tour the American Southwest. One night a mysterious woman knocks on their motel room door asking for a ride. When the husband declines, someone begins stalking them. A fortune the wife recieves earlier does all the foreshadowing we need.

Seeing this on both Netflix and Amazon, and having a name I was unfamiliar with, I figured it would be just another low budget horror flick, but I was wrong. I was expecting to turn the movie off within 10 minutes, but ended up watching it all while wanting more when it ended. Sure... there are a few small things I would have done to change it, particularly at the end - something happens that I've seen in the movie Grave Encounters, it was something cheesy, in my opinion. But for the most part, this is really interesting and freaky. It is definitely worth AT LEAST a one time watch.

First off, let me say, I am not a fan of hand held first person POV movies. It started off with the Blair Witch Project, and I have hated films like it ever since. But something about the trailer to this one looked interesting, and I'm glad I didn't turn my nose up at this one now. V/H/S starts off with the POV cam type of thing where a few guys are smashing things up, and preying on women by ganging up on her and forcing her to allow them to expose her body on cam. I think it was something about them getting paid to do that for money to sell it to internet site perverts and sickos, or something about that. I have a feeling this might be why so many reviews here are for 1 star, because at this point of the movie I was ready to turn it off too and dismiss this as being a POS if this was what the movie was going to be about.

Luckily I held in there and got past that crap, and the story gets better as these guys are asked to break into a house somewhere and steal a VHS tape. These idiots record themselves doing this, but that's when this thing starts to get better. As a couple of the guys explore this house looking for a specific tape, another one is left to view what tapes have been left around to try and figure out which tape it is this person who has asked for it wants.

One by one they start watching a tape left in this house, and it then shows the footage of what is on the tapes. Each tape is something different, that is horrific, weird and paranormal. It's kind of like little short horror movies, each being different, but each being shot from a hand held camera, or vacation type of video.

Format: DVD
A group of vandals / thieves / videographers break into a house in order to steal a specific VHS tape. Once inside, they find the place empty, except for one room. In this room is a stack of televisions, a VCR, and an old man in a chair. This forms the wrap-around story for the events on a tape already in the VCR. VIDEO ONE has a trio of drunken pervs, out to secretly record their sexual exploits. The tables are turned on them, and they become human prey. VIDEO TWO is about a young couple on vacation. Their trip soon becomes a nightmare when someone enters their room while they sleep. On VIDEO THREE, a group of four hikers are out for a serene walk through the woods. Unfortunately, someone / something is out to ruin their little nature walk. VIDEO FOUR is a gruesome, supernatural story told over several days, via internet video. It's a cautionary tale that is best summed up in the words, "Trust no one". VIDEO FIVE concerns four guys and a Halloween party. Things fly out of control, and the four are plunged into a demonic night of death. As the burglars watch the tape, they slowly realize that things are not as they appear, and that they are in big trouble. VHS is a brilliant twist on the anthology film, and succeeds in being everything that "found footage" movies like BLAIR WITCH PROJECT should have been! Highly recommended...
