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.

"V/H/S" probably sounded great in the pitch meeting, but it loses all luster through some shoddy execution.

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

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.

"V/H/S" puts the majority of today's mainstream "scary" movies to shame; perhaps the solution is to cut them all down to about 15 minutes, and fund them on a shoestring.

At nearly two hours, the gimmick punctures a hole in itself, causing ambience bleed-out.

This anthology of "found footage" horror featurettes is predictably hit-and-miss.

This horror anthology collects six shorts of varying quality, all purported to be found footage. My favorite is Ti West's Second Honeymoon.

All told, V/H/S brings some cohesion to the Wild West of indie horror filmmaking, and seems destined to become a key artifact of a DIY era.

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

An ingenious hybrid: part Godardian art film, part abstract video experiment, part sleazy shocker, and all self-castigating interrogation of what film-theory types call the "male gaze."

Mainly, the omnibus film feels undercooked, even on the grounds of its forced technological setup.

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

All of the short films are genuinely unnerving, and the point-of-view camerawork is, at times, startling.
