On "10/31/1998", one of the characters, the Soldier, was wearing digital camouflage pants. Digital camouflage did not come out until after 2001/02. See more »
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?

I just finished watching V/H/S, and it did surprise me.
The movie tells a story about a bunch of guys, going into a creepy house, looking for a special VHS. In the meantime, the movie shows you a couple of independent, short stories, recorded with a handy cam. If movies like Paranormal Activity, REC, etc. are really scary to you, then VHS will really scare you. Otherwise, don't watch it... Don't get me wrong, some of the short stories were a bit frightening, but personally I don't like movies that are filmed like this. Also, some of the characters were VERY annoying. At a certain point, I really wanted some of them to die, because of the bad acting.
So like I said, if you liked REC and PA, you are going to love this one. It was enjoyable, but I certainly will not watch this a second time.
