The most effective horror anthology since the birth of DVD, V/H/S is what happens when a whole bunch of today’s most promising horror filmmakers come together and systematically engineer the nightmares you’ll be having for the rest of your life. Justifying found footage just when the gimmick seems to be dying, V/H/S wraps 5 scary shorts from the likes of Ti West and Joe Swanberg (!?) into a seamless framework that never lets you relax. Ironically, V/H/S is the movie VOD has been waiting for, and you’re better off watching it at home on August 31 than in theaters in October.
