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.

Made by, for, and about toxic white men. I think that the filmmakers intended this anthology to be a biting commentary on voyeurism and rape culture, but they ended up telling stories which are generally about men who don't understand consent being terrorized by women with sexual agency. Far from being frightened, I found myself finishing each segment thinking "Huh, good for her."
does not work. cant play
First and last story were good, the rest were mostly forgettable
will not let me play says gremlins at work..... love the movie though.
The first VHS was the best. We'd actually watched the feature length version of it before this. The short version of the Siren was much, much better. The last tape they watched was good too, the rest were just meh.
