In this found-footage anthology, a gang of thieves find a stash of scary home videos, each different in genre and tone. Highlights include David Bruckner's (THE SIGNAL) "Amateur Night" about three bros who bring the wrong girl home for sex; Ti West's (THE INNKEEPERS) "Second Honymoon" about a stalker menacing a couple on a road trip; and Joe Swanberg's utterly chilling "The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger" which may freak you out for days. An essential document of the indie horror new wave made by and starring many of its power players. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.
Thieves find a stash of home videos that reveal real-life horror stories.

Only one of the five short films were even remotely bearable.
I absolutely love the V/H/S series but the first is still my favorite. Each short story is memorable in it's own way and combined make this one of the best horror anthology films to date in my personal opinion. Overall I think all 3 films in the V/H/S series are great the original stands tall but I do recommend checking out 2 and 3. Good gore, good storytelling, good collection of found footage greatness.
This is a great movie ! Loved the stories. The VHS movie is amazing as well. VHS viral is just okay. If you like these types of movies you definitely need to watch the REC movies..
Awesome anthology series!
I had a lot of hype going into this one because of what I have heard about it, and based on past films several of the directors have made. This did not live up to the hype for me. Some segments seemed overly long and not scary. Some meh performances with bad dialogue. A few moments of good practical effects, but some segments overused bad cgi. Honestly watch the last segment on YouTube and skip the rest in my opinion. Or go watch Southbound.
