Product Description

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 realise that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body is slumped before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one they are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each more terrifying than the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mixed, interesting barrage of horror 12 April 2013
By Benminx
VHS is an anthology movie, very much in the style of the old '80s cheese-ball horrors where a 'framing device' of a group of old men would sit around trying to outdo each other by telling horror tales that would then segue into the 'tale' itself.
In this case, 5 tales are loosely connected by the framing plot that a group of antisocial petty criminals have been hired to ransack a house to find a specific tape, and discover tales of terror on random VHS tapes as they search. I say loosely connected, because the 'framing storyline' (known as "Tape 56" and directed appallingly by Adam Wingard) doesn't work. The opening sequences of the movie are so choppily edited, anarchic and incoherent, and the youths searching for the tape so utterly detestable and devoid of character that I found myself not just utterly uninterested in anything that happened to them but actively wishing something bad would. Worse, "Tape 56" itself doesn't seem to care, as its filming is so amateurish and careless that the fates of several characters are utterly unexplained, and the framing device fails to work as anything more than a poor excuse because instead of book-ending the other plots, it ends before the fifth 'discovered tape' even starts.
Luckily the 'discovered tapes' are much better.
David Bruckner's "Amateur Night" follows a trio of horned up buddies on a clubbing night out, and explores what happens when low morals and an excess of alcohol lead them to invite strangers back for some fun...the effects are excellent, the acting of Hannah Fierman captivating, and the writing is tense and inventive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepshow crossed with the Blair Witch Project 29 Nov 2012
By D. Krol TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I've been wanting to see this for near on 6 months now and finally got my chance last night.
I love anthology films, purely because, for every one short story that disappoints, you know there'll be another chance for the film to redeem itself shortly after.

The wraparound story is simply this, there's a bunch of idiots who wear balaclavas and go around grabbing women and pulling thier tops up and causing damage wherever they can, while one of them films it all so they can sell thier footage to a minor porn site for $50 a time. They get a job to earn some extra cash by breaking into an old mans house and recovering a mysterious VHS video tape. The only information they have is that the old man is harmless, lives alone and they will know the tape as soon as they see it.

Upon breaking into the house, they find the old man sitting in a chair, in front of a set of video recorders and TV screens, having apparently died of a heart attack. Not to be out of pocket, they decide to search the house for the mysterious tape. What they find is box upon box of VHS tapes, all looking the same and so they decide to play them back to see what is on them.

We are then treated to 5 found footage type short stories, which are on the tapes. And between each tape, sinister things are happening to the VHS hunting burglars and the dead man in the chair.

I'll list the stories below.

1: Amateur night: This segment is about a group of obnoxious guys who are in possesion of a pair of spycam glasses and the story is told directly through these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Found Tape Horror that really works. 2 Mar 2013
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Yes we are all getting a bit tired with 'found tapes' type films but this is sort of different. First a group of really unlikable hoodlums are hired by an unknown third party to break and enter an isolated house (they are usually isolated with no phone cover aren't they) where they have to steal a VHS tape, they are told they will know which one it is. Once they get inside the house they discover the corpse of an old man in an upstairs room facing a bank of televisions.

Then they discover that there are quite a few VHS tapes in the house already and will either take the lot or sort through them. Well they start to play one and it is a found tape itself which ends in a nasty way, still unperturbed they put on yet more and the footage gets worse.

This is different as I said as it has been written and directed by 10 different people, this reflects that all the tapes are mini horrors in their own right and they are all pretty much seasoned in their art both the writers and directors. The concept also allows for the quality of the camera work etc to change and yet never affect the continuity of the actual plot. The various `tapes' are segued perfectly by the goings on back in the spooky house.

It is scary in places and I found myself saying `turn the lights on already' on more than one occasion as the on screen victims seem to have never heard of a light switch. Still that is par for the course and all adds to the fun. There is a fair smattering of nudity but none of it really sexy and bordering on gratuitous some could argue. Some scenes are hard to watch which is a very good thing for a horror film and it has been so well received that a follow up, imaginatively called `VHS 2' is already out in the USA. A must for most horror fans - recommended.
