V/H/S (2012)

Overall:

I’m not going to try and convince you that any of these movies are real, nor will I try to convince you that they aren’t. I will say, however, if there were a real found footage movie floating around in the semi-mainstream of Netflix horror, it would be a lot like this.

Dirty, weird homes, scumbag weirdo guys with hoodies and weird facial hair, etc. Everything was made as far outside of what hollywood does to horror that I could be persuaded to believe it.

The main story line involves a group of small time criminals who make $50 every time they film themselves forcing a woman to flash a camera(Fifty each, or do they split it between the five of them? $10 a piece for the evidence of yourself committing a crime seems low, but I’m certainly not working on a business plan for them). These guys then get offered money by some mystery man to break into some other dude’s house and steal a specific VHS tape. The rest of the film is these guys watching the many weird vhs tapes in this guy’s house while he’s pressumably dead in his recliner.

The VHS tapes have different tales of death and crime and the paranormal. They’re all a bit uncomfortable, a bit over the top sick, and a must see if you like weird horror. The first mini-film is the best of all of them, in my opinion.
