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.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The main storyline has us tagging along with a bunch of twenty-something hooligans who go around filming all of their acts of vandalism, robbery, assault, and other nefarious deeds. Then one of them says he has a job that promises a most satisfactory payoff. All they have to do is break into this old man's house and steal a certain video tape - they have no idea what is on the tape, but the third party that wants it says they'll know it when they see it. So off they go, video camera in hand, to burgle the old guy's house. The job seemingly gets a lot easier when they find the old man dead in his chair, facing a wall of TV monitors and video players. That gives them the chance to go through the video tapes they do find to try and find "the tape." As it turns out, though, that's where they make their big mistake.
This is when things start to get good. Each tape features a group of strangers filming their own little adventures. The first one, for example, features three guys who go out on the town to pick up chicks - with one of the guys wearing spy glasses to capture all the fun on video. They manage to get a couple of girls to go home with them, but things don't go as planned from that point on.Read more ›
