Every once in a while comes a horror movie that redefines the genre and brings something new to the table. V/H/S in my opinion is the horror film of this time. Very gory, disturbing and sick but in a way that helps the story and not just to sickens the audience. The idea behind the film revolves around a group of misfits that are mysteriously hired to acquire a video tape from an isolated house. What they find is a big collection of video tapes, each containing disturbing and horrifying footage in it.
Each video tape footage is considered a different segment directed by a different director. The film uses the hand-held camera heavily as most of the segments consist of a group of people with one of them holding a camera (Blair Witch Project style). Seems like independent horror films are what’s driving this genre now, and this film is no exception. A great horror film with a great mood and a lot of scary and gory scenes. One of the year’s best in my opinion.
