*** This review may contain spoilers ***

There's a special rating in IMDb, reserved for such titles as V/H/S: Viral. That rating is 1 star. I actually liked the first V/H/S movie, so even after the horrible trailer (Didn't watch the trailer? Go watch it. I just saved you 80 minutes and some money.) I decided to watch it.

What a horrible decision. V/H/S: Viral opens with intriguing shots of a couple talking about couple stuff and mandatory boobs and legs scenes. Following a chase going on around the block, our male protagonist just has to film it so it could be his "break". Confusion ensues.

The movie is made of segments, as you probably know. And the first segment, after a while just ditches the format of "found footage" and hopes you won't notice. The movie is barely watchable up to that point, it gets absolutely ridiculous after. I'm pretty sure I even played one of the segments in a video game.

Overall, I eagerly label this movie "Stay the bleep away".

This delightfully prepared anime has one of the best plots I've ever seen.

In style, the anime employs cuteness, fun and games to ease you into it just to make the creepy parts even more creepy. Always shocks you at the right moment. Kept me up on my seat the whole time.

Starts with a lovely intro music with thoughtfully written lyrics, if you're into that kind of thing. I am.

What is really wonderful about this anime though, was the mind blowing quality of the subs provided by WindFS, who even included their often cryptic messages to us somehow (look out for them). Only this feature kept me going excitedly through just a few monotonous moments this anime had to offer.

Also has a sequel named Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, for which all my previous comments still apply. And there is a second sequel named Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei, which is a lot different, though equally elegant.
