V/H/S – Everything You Ever Hated About Found-Footage In One Detestable Movie

Following months of considerable hype, plenty of recommendations and some highly positive reviews, FMV Magazine's Jonathan Lamb was looking forward to watching found-footage anthology V/H/S. But when he finally saw the movie, he was horrified for all the wrong reasons. Here, he explains why. (Indie film, V/H/S)

Can't say I agree with much of his take on the film. As someone who generally dislikes found footage films, I found the film to be fun and inventive, a breath of fresh air for the horror sub-genre.

My two favorite shorts in the anthology were the two I thought were the best of the bunch so I guess that just proves different strokes for different folks.

This movie was awful. The recurring theme in each of these found footage stories was how annoying and awful each character could be. It's the only reason the directors could find for their characters to keep the cameras rolling.

Each story was terrible, hardly any of them made sense and the actors tried their hardest to not act at all.

One of the best scenes is the first story when the three d-bag guys are getting ripped apart in the motel room by the whatever the hell she was and the nerdy guy hides behind a bed RIGHT NEXT TO THE WAY OUT. He could've just left the hotel room, but instead he hides behind a bed. When I saw this I knew the movie would be crap.

I found this to be preety scary sometimes like the the part where he's video chatting and sees the kid and then the twist on that was nice
