    Synopsis:
    When a group of petty criminals are 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.

    We don't make the rules, guys. Besides, why not create an account just for stuff like this? You don't have to use it for anything else. It takes five minutes and it's free.

    aside from the horribly put together 'webcam' segment, it was a near-flawless movie. But honestly....two completely different eras, why would you even try to bother putting webcam sessions onto a vhs tape instead of just sliding a blank dvd into your computer? saves hours of transferring, whoever came up with that segment needs to get the fuck out of the industry.

    Near-flawless? I couldn't disagree more. Two of the segments were great, the wrap-around was okay, but the rest? Meh at best. I could maybe go 3-1/2 for this flick overall, but that's really pushing it.
