Coming Soon: V/H/S

Film: V/H/S

Release Date: October 5, 2012

As played out as the whole "found footage" thing is, there is something undeniably creepy about anything shot on a VHS tape (see: Ringu).

Film Plot (Based on my viewing of the trailer): Some dudes are hired to break into a house and steal a VHS tape.  Why the dudes are videotaping themselves committing the aforementioned crime is a mystery the trailer - and I'm guessing the movie itself - never explains.  Upon breaking into the house, the dudes discover a whole bunch of videotapes.  Not certain which one it is they are supposed to be stealing, the dudes have their own little found footage film festival.  The tapes they watch are scary or whatever.

Favorite Trailer Moments:
1:36 - I like when all those bloody handprints are being pounded onto the wall by an unseen force.

How It All Ends (Prolly): The dudes, shaken by what they seen, eventually find the video tape they are looking for, but it is cursed, and as such, is responsible for the car crash that ends both their lives and the movie.  Poor dudes.

Theater, Video or No Thank You: V/H/S is already on Video on Demand and I'm planning on watching it for next month's 31 Days of Horror.  I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.
