Cinefantastique

Consistently intense but inconsistently satisfying ... in its attempt to pack relentlessly downbeat horror into 20-minute packages.

Conceptual pedantry aside, there are things to enjoy here.

The anthology framework works well and features enough audacious moments to merit a viewing.

A mixed bag of found-footage horror shorts, this anthology gives rising star filmmakers a chance to do something original with the genre. Of course, some of the clips are much more effective than others, and some are little more than gimmicky jokes.

Thankfully, more often than not, these five shorts work.

Smart, scary stuff.

Several of the shorts build ingeniously, and their brevity solves the serial problem of found footage, which is how to maintain interest and plausibility in shaky-cam antics for a whole feature.

V/H/S works very well, with some of the segments genuinely inducing a sense of dread and unease while others create a videotape reality that just delights with its own twisted logic.

Spectacular hits and forgivable misses make this a surefire candidate for cult status.

A fantastic and fantastical example of how much life remains in the handy cam horror genre.

Entertaining horror anthology with strong performances, decent special effects and a handful of nice ideas, though some of the stories work better than others and the film is let down by a weak linking segment.

Like last year's Chronicle, here's another reminder that in the right hands found footage still has plenty of capacity to surprise.

Screechy, surprising and, in places, proper scary, this glitchy genre mixtape puts invention ahead of attention span, representing a 4/6 victory for killer over filler.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Much more stylish and novel, at this point, than the 'Paranormal' sequels and other studio-embraced found-footage shockers, the movie makes a virtue of the distressed yet esthetically pleasing look of old VHS tape, as well as Skype and other technologies.

The Filmmakers should've consulted one another re: their content-one more segment with a group of A-HOLES carrying on like the cast of JACKASS and my head may have exploded.

The mostly played-out found footage aesthetic has its limitations, and V/H/S doesn't escape all of them. But the collected directors do manage to make many of those limitations into the films' strengths.

The quality is consistent... and all six segments come up with some genuinely spooky ideas.

The film also plays to the strengths of the found-footage format, proving that sometimes the scariest things are the ones you can barely see.
