V/H/S product reviews

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.

This was... an odd experience of a film. but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The trailer feels a bit confusing and leads you to think that it is just a bunch of short horror films but there is story running between them all.

A group of petty criminals are hired to retrieve a video cassette tape from an old house. Upon entering the house they find a lifeless body in front of a half a dozen TV's all on static. They split up and one loan man is left to look through the tapes in that room. And so we are introduced to the first short film.

These 'films' range through a range of horror movie genres. A couple left me feeling like 'what the heck is going on here' to the ones that had me thinking 'ooookay...." to one that really was quite clever, but due to the ending left me wanting more.

The filming style is found footage, which is when someone finds a recording done by the person in the scene with their own personal recording device. While this did give some good moments to this, and some interesting ways (webcam, handheld and implanted in glasses) it did make for some very dizzying moments, especially as this was the filming type through the in-between parts as well.

The parts between each clip is one whole story, but it just seems really random and so feels kind of disjointed. I think it would have been fine had they not bothered cutting up that one and just putting them all one after the other with just a title page between them all. These are also all as though they came up with horror movie ideas, figured out the end but didn't know how to make it a full length film so just filmed the climax and that was that.

Whilst I did find it a bit odd, and at times it could have done a lot better, these are still a lot better than most of the full length movies that I have seen.
