On the surface, these may indeed sound like they would be interesting stories to put together for a horror collection, but sadly, "V/H/S" suffers from a very poor level of writing.

[Embodies] the whole found footage horror genre: there's a few highlights, most of it doesn't work at all, and after a while the 'reality' feels especially artificial.

Incomprehensible camera-work, dodgy acting, repetitious pacing, lazy jump scares and low-resolution boobies

The shorts taken on their own might be perfectly acceptable found-footage episodes, but digested as a whole film, packaged together, it becomes a difficult thing to watch.

Some of the segments are more successful than others, but all of them could do with better actors.

Sadly, V/H/S is more miss than hit.

What's the point? None of the segments is particularly compelling. Strung together, it's way too much of a muchness.

Two hours of nausea-inducing shaky cam footage that fails to tell a coherent or engrossing central story.

Tiresome turkey seldom provokes anything but weary derision.

With some work on the script and some polish, this could have been an interesting film. Instead, it's just an experiment with mixed results.

Six horror shorts - one sings, the others mostly don't.

Even the title feels like a suggestion that you're better off waiting to watch it at home.

In too many of the shorts, bad acting quickly undermines the "authenticity" the aesthetics labor to achieve.

I did like the first segment, but the others are the reasons why I normally dislike many entries from the horror genre. It's an interesting concept, but unfortunately it just falls apart.

Watching douche bags get their comeuppance loses its charms the fourth or fifth time through.

While two of the tales retain a satisfying bite, the experiment as a whole is tiring and often ridiculous, spending most of its energy supporting a concept that wears out its welcome after ten minutes of exposure.

Antagony & Ecstasy

It might well be a brand-new different kind of found footage movie, but it's no better a work of horror cinema as a result.

This has been attracting a lot of enthusiasm from horror buffs but it is hard to see why.
