"V/H/S" was actually pretty good as far as found footage horror movies ago, with its gimmicky no-budget aesthetic actually working especially well for its unnerving anti-casual-sex opener, "Amateur Night," and the creepy final segment involving a very haunted house, "10/31/98."

A sequel was inevitable, which brings us to "S-vhs" (super VHS), named after the semi-professional analog format that showed up in the late '80s and lasted for about two weeks.
