So much potential
29 May 2019 | by tothmartinSee all my reviews

V/H/S is something very special to me. It is a collection of short stories and oh boy, do I like anthologies. So I was expecting it to be, straight on point with the stories but some of them really got me into thinking what I just saw. I needed to, really get into them which is the point of the movie about these VHS tapes. The tapes are fine with the exception of the second which is about a trip, that one was... too normal I guess, but it was fine. The others, are totally not like what I excepted. These tales are really make you feel weird and that is what this movie wants, but sometimes the beginning of them just too slow. At the end, I liked it really much. It was scary at points, it was tense and all in all, it was entertaining. I liked it, give it a go.
