October 5, 2012 (San Diego) – V/H/S is a twisted ode to the videotape, a once-venerable technology that is becoming an increasingly forgotten relic in the high definition digital age. Taking the best elements of the found footage genre and integrating it with the anthology film format, it made me scared, anxious, and queasy. Each story, helmed by a different director, uses the found footage genre to its fullest potential, with scary, disturbing and unsettling results.
