Thought V/H/S was ultimately a disappointing waste of a great concept. A melding of the found footage and anthology horror genres (with each segment helmed by a different filmmaker - mostly young ‘up & comers’), the film certainly has some moments of creepy frisson, but they are too brief and too rare to really sway in its favour. The interconnecting segments have no satisfying pay-off (a vital part of the anthology horror film), and the final story (probably the best overall) just seemed tacked-on to give the audiences one last ride, and didn’t seem part of the overall story (which revolves around a series of young jackasses who are trying to locate a notorious piece of VHS tape they have been hired to steal from an old house). The story told entirely via a skype chat, while creatively presented at times, also seemed out of place and too ‘modern’ (what has skype got to do with VHS tapes?).I still believe that the film’s concept could work incredibly well - I’ve always found something disturbing in the grainy, tracking error-filled image of VHS tape, it’s what made films like Evil Dead, I Spit on Your Grave and Bloodsucking Freaks even more unnerving when I first watched them (over and over again) on tape in the eighties. V/H/S sadly never manages to really tap into that fear.
