The opener and closer VHS stories are awesome however, there were a couple of stories that could have been better - the couple road tripping could be scratched. The teen/cabin scenario had great characters for what it was, but the 'jitter-bug' monster was a disappointment.
VHS ruled, i still stand by 'DOWN WITH CAM HORROR' - a contradiction. ” - peter_howard89
