DVD Verdict
5 January 2013
  • Excerpt: When the trailer for V/H/S first hit the internet, many movie lovers were thrilled, including me. It looked like a total thrill ride, with the title and subject matter speaking to old-school horror fans, evoking a time when we used to look for hidden gems among the lurid covers of the dank, dusty horror sections of our neighborhood mom n' pop video store. A bunch of party dudes run around the city, causing chaos while filming it all.

  • Excerpt: Yes, the found footage technique: the first person narrative technique designed to give the audience the impression of the film being pieced together from a series of video recordings usually left behind by characters now believed dead. The technique existed before but became internationally popular when the film The Blair Witch Project was released.

  • Excerpt: An anthology film made up of five short stories by five different directors, 2012’s V/H/S is linked by Adam Wingard’s bookend segments which introduce us to a group of low fi redneck porno movie makers who use VHS era camcorders to coerce women into showing their goods for a quick buck.

  • Conclusion: I can easily say that I'm now a fan of 'V/H/S', and more notably the talent of Radio Silence. These original stories, along with the creative camerework, produce a lot of genuine scares. I can't wait to turn out the lights, and make my friends watch this film after midnight. I highly recommend this Blu-ray, it makes an excellent addition to any horror fan's collection. I can't wait for the sequel.

  • Excerpt: I don’t know if V/H/S is a serious movie, an excuse for directors Adam Wingard, Joe Swanberg, Ti West and some buddies to work through short film ideas, a larger commentary on the found footage genre or some alternative suggestion I haven’t considered. There’s evidence for all of those possibilities, but in many ways, it couldn’t possibly matter any less.

  • Excerpt: One primary takeaway from The Blair Witch Project , the found-footage horror film that started it all, it was the revelation that under the right circumstances, something as simple and resolutely mundane as a pile of rocks—or a bunch of twigs knotted together—could terrify an audience. And without costing a penny.

  • Summary: I love a horror anthology – most of the time. Not so much in this case, with most of the micro-budget directors who contributed shorts to this collection all indulging similar themes. The desire to shock seems to outweigh a sense of atmosphere throughout, which is fine if you like grubby horror but didn’t really do it for me. An extra disappointment was that Ti West ( The House of the Devil , The Innkeepers ) directs the worst of the bunch.

  • Excerpt: Iedereen herinnert zich vast nog de oude getrouwe VHS tapes, de zwarte cassettes met ruisend beeld en soms onvast beeld. Voor de komst van DVD was het beste manier om iets op te nemen. Dit varieerde van films tot meer persoonlijke beelden. Maar hoever zou je gaan om een welbepaalde videotape te bemachtigen en vooral wat is de inhoud van deze tape dat je een groepje criminele zou inhuren om in te breken en het te stelen.

  • Excerpt: Een groepje buitenbeentjes wordt ingehuurd door een onbekende om in te breken in een verlaten huis op het platteland. Ze moeten er een zeldzame videoband zien te bemachtigen. Ter plaatse ontdekken ze echter een lijk, een aantal oude televisies en een grote partij cryptische videobeelden...
