Blu-ray Review: V/H/S

V/H/S

Review by Andrew MacArthur

Stars: Calvin Reeder, Joe Swanberg, Jas Sams | Directed by Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Joe Swanberg, Radio Silence

Found footage horror V/H/S has completely revitalised a played-out, repetitive style of filmmaking with six chilling anthology tales. Ti West (House of The Devil), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead) and Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way To Die) are just three of the directors to contribute to this chilling anthology.

V/H/S opens with a group of criminals assaulting young women and vandalising property. They are hired by an anonymous client to break into an abandoned house and obtain a mysterious video tape. The group begin to work their way through a series of terrifying tapes, each revealing a different short film. V/H/S manages to fuse so many horror sub-genres together in an innovative and chilling manner,

Exclusive: Radio Silence Talks V/H/S Blu-ray
The directing quartet Radio Silence talk about their segment of the horror anthology V/H/S, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD

The horror anthology V/H/S is comprised of six short films made by a host of celebrated directors. One of those filmmakers is actually of a quartet of young directors known as Radio Silence (a.k.a. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Chad Villella, and Justin Martinez). They make their feature debut with V/H/S, after making a popular series of viral videos through their YouTube channel, which has over 60 million views. Their segment of V/H/S entitled 10/31/98, which they wrote, directed, edited, shot, and starred in, follows a group of friends who think they're going to a Halloween party... and get much more than they bargained for. I recently had the chance to speak with these talented multi-hyphenates over the phone. Here's what they had to say.

Exclusive: Ti West Talks V/H/S Blu-ray
Director Ti West talks about his segment of the upcoming horror anthology V/H/S, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Director Ti West is at the top of his game, with not one but two fantastic horror features in the same year. He kicked off 2012 by directed the phenomenal thriller The Innkeepers (which was sadly underseen), and now he directs a segment in the upcoming horror anthology V/H/S, which are now available on Blu-ray and DVD after a successful run in theaters and on VOD.

He is one of six different filmmakers (Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, and Radio Silence) whose unique shorts are combined into one thrilling tale. Ti West's short, dubbed "Second Honeymoon," is one of my favorites, centering on a young couple (Joe Swanberg and Sophia Takal) whose trip takes some incredibly creepy turns.

Quinones, Drew Moerlein, Jason Yachanin, Helen Rogers, Chad Villella, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett and Paul Natonek Pairing together five unseemingly related short found footage horror movies into one feature film initially appears to be a gimmick that aims to draw in as much money as possible for the low-budget, independent projects.

First up, we get a one-sheet inspired by Radio Silence's short '10/31/98', painted by Jason Latour.

Brand New V/H/S Promo Poster

Today a new promo poster for V/H/S, a horror anthology featuring horror shorts from directors Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), Radio Silence (a group of directors including Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez, and Chad Villella), David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg, and Ti West (The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil), has been released.

In the film a group of criminals are hired to break into a country home and retrieve a mysterious video tape. Every tape that they watch is more evil and sinister than the one before. The found footage style shows well so far in the V/H/S trailer. It sounded like a simple job but upon entering the house, they find a rotting corpse next to the huge assortment of scary videos. You have to see the trailer as it may be the scariest trailer of 2012 so far.

Directed by: Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, Radio Silence. Writers: Simon Barrett, David Bruckner, Nicholas Tecosky, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Simon Barrett, Joe Swanberg, and Radio Silence. Cast: Calvin Reeder, Helen Rogers, Sophia Takal, Hannah Fierman, Jason Yachanin, Lane Hughes, Mike Donlan, Joe Sykes, Drew Sawyer, Jas Sams, Joe Swanberg, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Drew Moerlein. Tagline: "This collection is killer." V/H/S is the latest production to be distributed by The Collective. This is a distribution company that has brought horror film fans Atrocious (2010) and The Woman (2011). Their latest is a found footage horror anthology composed of six short films. Chillerama (2011) is another memorable horror anthology that focused on sexual humour. Here, the film focuses more on extreme horror. There is a lot of gore in this piece, nudity and even some comedy. And like most anthologies, some of the shorts work, while others simply.
