V/H/S (2012) on Demand August 30th, In Theaters October 5th

The buzz is in full effect for V/H/S (2012). Based on the “reviews” I’ve received, from people who watched the movie already, it’s well-deserved buzz. So I’m spreading the word and crossing my fingers that this one will scare me. I mean, honest to heebie-jeebie goodness, frighten me. (Not just gross me out.)

Synopsis from Magnet Releasing:

When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one, they are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.

Bringing together some of the top filmmakers in the game today, this wickedly conceived horror anthology sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock, and downright brutality—instantly distinguishing itself from a sea of lackluster found-footage horror flicks. The diverse and deviously creative minds behind V/H/S shatter any preconceived notions about the genre, making it feel inventive and captivating once again.

  1. I think you’ll be pleased with this one. I love that they took the anthology route, making it a modern day “Creepshow” or “Tales From the Crypt”. The found footage take really works here and definitely makes it that much more tense. The stories work for the most part. Movies don’t scare me anymore, but I was damn near giddy to find myself on the edge of my seat at times, at one time pulling a blanket up to my nose, ready to hide, because I was so invested. That being said, I loved this movie but it disappointed me too. A few of the stories just didn’t work for me, or they would draw me in but have a lackluster payoff. But you’ll have that in any anthology. That’s part of the fun, ranking your favorite and least favorite stories. I give V/H/S an A+ for effort and 4 out of 5 stars for the final product. Definitely worth seeing and I’m keeping my hopes for a sequel. “DVD” anyone? 🙂
