"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.
This collection of lo-fi terror tales sports an even more impressive line-up of directors, including Simon Barrett ("Dead Birds"), Adam Wingard (" A Horrible Way to Die"), Edúardo Sánchez ("The Blair Witch Project"), Gregg Hale ("Seventh Moon"), Timo Tjahjanto ("The ABCs of Death"), Gareth Huw Evans ("The Raid: Redemption") and Jason Eisener ("Hobo with a Shotgun").
And you gotta love the synopsis for the film, courtesy of the Sundance Film Festival:
