5.0 out of 5 stars Black Moon Bloody Wings, 20 Jan. 2013
This review is from: V/H/S [DVD] (DVD)
V/H/S is a film you will either love or hate. What I would say to anyone reading is - watch the film and decide for yourself. As a horror movie with elements of fantasy, I found it to be disturbing, subversive, atmospheric - and bleak. It (purposely) looks like rough videotape, complete with picture noise and at times, muffled, jarring sound, old images surface and appear at random, like floating ghosts, as if the tape has been used many times before, it lends the film an authentic and genuinely creepy feel. Several scenes are difficult to watch and are deeply unpleasant. At last, a horror film that is actually horrific. There is blood, dirt, terror, nudity and gore. Some of the stories are vividly lurid and all of them invoke a sense of dread. There are images that stay with you. Voyeuristic. Hellish. Satanic. A Slit Throat. A Broken Wrist. A Black Wet Liver. Some of it makes no sense. Like real life then. I loved it. I thought that the "I like you" girl and segment (Amateur Night) were excellent, I do not need, nor want to know her origin or motive, it is enough for her to be brilliantly creepy, and vile; there is no logic, no reason and therein lies the horror, the story retains a black shroud of terror and mystery and strange beauty - because there is no explanation. This leaves your mind free to wander, to theorize and to imagine. Tuesday The 17th has a dark surprise that is fresh and smart, like The Blair Witch Project in broad daylight with bloody violence, added menace and glimpses of a macabre killer that gives a new perspective to the phrase 'video nasty.' Second Honeymoon is wonderfully taut, it is tense and you may just wonder where it is all heading until it has crept upon you and its shocking conclusion has spread through your mind like blood in water. The blood is in the water. Dark and spreading. Dark as clouds smothering the moon at midnight.
