Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student's disappearance.
Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
Two best friends see their trip of a lifetime take a dark turn when one of them is struck by a mysterious affliction. Now, in a foreign land, they race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely.
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
Sam and Stephanie's fortune card from the machine in "Second Honeymoon" alludes to the other arcs of the anthology, as well as its own arc. See more »
On the "10/31/1998" segment when the guys are heading over to the Halloween party, the cars on the highway are obviously more modern for the late 1990s - early 2000s; a Ford Edge is also visible. 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.
