Scary Movie Review Month: the one with all the shorts

Today's review is on V/H/S: a group of delinquents, a la Jackass-style, are hired to steal a specific VHS tape  and get more than they bargained for. Lots of found footage abound.
Rented this on Amazon Instant Video since this is only in select theatres.

If this set up is supposed to get me in the mood, it's doing a good job of it: it's getting me in the mood to roll my eyes, call shenanigans and wish all of them dead.

So, magic internet find: camcorder glasses.

Holy tunas, what's wrong with her eyes/face/etc?!

Did she just hiss at him?

Her feet! Is anyone else seeing this?
Why aren't you leaving?

Is she... she is. She's coughing up a hairball.

Now we're in the desert.

What a cute mule! All sleepy and soft.

That's creepy. Like in the movie Big. Which was terrifying. It's going to make you old! Run away!

Take note: do not answer the door when you're in a weird town and there's a creeper just hanging outside.

Nasty toilet breath!

That. was sudden.

Do they all know each other?

She's a bit strange.

So. very. sudden

He's pixels.

"You're all going to die up here." - The Blair Witch Project

"What are you waiting for?" - I Know What You Did Last Summer

"I beat you." -Creepshow
These quotes are from other scary movies and they've all been said in this one short.

I. I don't understand.

Ok, this looks interesting.

This short has promise, but now I can't take it seriously.

Wait what?

So, is this another girl?

Disappearing people?

Adorable costume.

If you're looking for someone, why don't you just call them?

Ok, this one is showing some promise. Some real promise.

That was nice and creepy.

Dude, this. This is. Yes.

Birds out of nowhere!

Why would a cellar seem like a good idea?

Uh oh. That was not a good idea. Chivalry is not such a good idea in this case.


Score: 3 1/2 out of 5
