A POV, found footage horror film from the perspective of America's top genre filmmakers. A group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house in the countryside and acquire a rare tape. Upon searching the house, the guys are confronted with a dead body, a hub of old televisions and an endless supply of cryptic footage, each video stranger than the last.Written by

Back up. Back up, back up. Turn around, turn around.
[the men wearing masks drive by a couple walking, then the men get out of their vehicle to confront the couple]
[the cameraman tells the other assailiant]
Show her tits! Ha ha ha! Whoo!
[the cameraman notices the boyfriend of the girl charge after them]
Oh, shit! Run, run, run! Go, go go!
[the camera cuts to the footage afterwards of the men destroying a building]
It's cool, huh?

No plot equals a bad movie equals VHS
VHS is bad... plain and simple. Where is the plot? Where is the story? Where is anything? In VHS you just watch four different VHS tapes, while you're supposed to watch the main "found-footage" tape...confusing? Yeah, but that's it... VHS doesn't have any plot, any back-story, closer, nothing... I was very disappointed, because I have read some good reviews about it. It was boring, and, with the exception of the first tape, it was not at all entertaining... If you want to watch a good movie, VHS isn't your choice. You'll only see a random selection of stories that seem to drag for 2 hours...awful. I recommend you avoid this one, unless you're a fan of "found-footage" material movies, and even so...
