“Grade A terrifying. One of the scariest movies in recent memory.”
Drew McWeeny, HitFix.
The classic anthology horror movie is given a contemporary and brilliantly visceral spin by some of the hottest new directors working in the genre today.
Director Adam Wingard (You’re Next; A Horrible Way To Die), David Bruckner (The Signal), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead), Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes The Stairs) and Ti West (The Innkeepers; Cabin Fever 2: Spring Break; The House Of The Devil).

A small group of misfit friends and petty crooks are hired by a mysterious man to break into a derelict suburban house with the sole purpose of finding and stealing a rare videotape. Their only clue to identifying the tape in question is, “You’ll know it when you see it.”
However, on arrival at the house they soon realize the job isn’t as straightforward as they imagined. In one room they discover the lifeless body of a middle-aged man sitting in an armchair, facing a wall of television sets and a stack of VHS cassettes. A similar bounty of tapes is found in the basement, none of which bears any obvious markings to suggest it is the prize they are seeking. As they search through the tapes, playing them in turn, they are treated to a succession of graphic and apparently genuine video recordings, each one more shocking and bizarre than the last.
We like it because:
The subject of huge critical acclaim following screenings at various international film festivals this year (including Sundance, SXSW, Edinburgh, Toronto After Dark and London’s Film4 Frightfest), V/H/S has been the source of a tremendous buzz amongst the horror fraternity and for very good reason. Highly original, brutally uncompromising, creative, diverse and, most important of all, genuinely creepy and enormously entertaining, this is one of the best horror films we’ve seen in quite a long time. Take our word for it; this is an absolute must-see for horror fans.

“Grade A terrifying. One of the scariest movies in recent memory. Loaded with scares that play on a primal nightmare level.
