Really enjoyed the first and last segment and there were cool ideas in pretty much all of the segments. Only thing that let it down was some dodgy acting in the part set in the woods and by the lake and the overarching story of the people inside the house - just didn't do anything for me.
Overall though one of the creepiest horrors I've seen in a while. Definitely gets under your skin with some of the ideas. 7 years ago
This was a let down since everyone was saying how amazing it was.
Let me carry my laptop so my boyfriend can see what's making the noise in my apartment. A weapon? Sure, I'll get this pair of scissors. A flashlight (because I can't flip the light switch for some reason)? No, but I'll use this camera and use the flash for light. I'll just hold this with my third hand.
I'll also cut a giant hole into my arm and am shoving things into it. Then someone will tell me to put a band aid over it because that's clearly what medical attention a would like that would need. 4 years ago
Some of it's more YouTube than pay-to-see fare, but all in all this is pretty decent, and one of the least annoying found-footage films I've seen. That's not to say that the protagonists don't piss me off as much of those in Cloverfield and Blair Witch - there's just much less of a wait before they get what's coming. V/H/S may not be amazing, but it's great late-night fare, and a decent horror flick (if Texas Chainsaw Massacre doesn't do it for you, you want more than gore, and you wanted to like Paranormal Activity, you just wish it was, you know, something close to bearable).
Amateur Party (withthe succubus, or something) was, by far, the best segment; shame they made it the first tape watched. 6 years 7 months ago
