Review of V/H/S

i've been wanting to see this one since i first saw the trailer. i love horror, i like anthology films, v/h/s seemed like a great ida that 'supposedly' was really good. so when i saw the dvd at walmart for a fiver i just could not say no. i would of paid ten so five was a real steal. this was back on boxing day 2013 (or was it 2012) and today i finally sat down and watched it. and it was pretty damn good. the stories were great, the effects were excellent, the found footage idea was worked well into the stories as to not exist for no reason, and the film was scary. there were jump scares (people complain about jump scares but i think they are very effective sometimes), atmospheric scares, slow lingering scenes of tension scares, real scares, fakes scares, scares of all kinds. so v/h/s is made up of five stories and the wrap around segment and each one plays fairly well as a horror short. the gore is great and sometimes sickening and teh nudity is abundant and graphic. this film is hardcore. it's filmed very nicely and edited quite well and the music, and at times, lack of music, works wonders to rack up the tension. there are a few problems with v/h/s though. mainly the wraparound segment, while okay, is kind of pointless and never really delivers. the segment second honeymoon has an ending that is maybe confusing? i'm actually confused about being confused on that one. and the final segment, 10/31/98, goes a little overboard on the effects and affects of the house. but besides that i had a really good time watching v/h/s. i was scared, i was disturbed, i was in horror movie heaven. over the last two decades there have been plenty of watered down pg-13 horror movies that haven't delivered on the chills and thrills and gore and nudity. while this in itself is a bad thing i do think that it has made the real hardcore r rated horror films scary again. watching r rated horror before the pg-13 revolution i desensitized myself to the likes of films like this. i belief that all the pg-13 crap has allowed for audiences to be scared again. v/h/s delivers on this idea and it's hardcore ambitions are a welcome return to a time when gore and nudity weren't held back and a feeling of terror existed within the movies. 80/100
