Towers Above The First With Harrowing Stories & Imagery 9.5/10
7 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I don't often hand out high ranks to found footage movies unless I really was impressed and to say I am impressed is an understatement. This film is nothing short of a treat to horror audiences everywhere

I'm going to briefly review each title with 0 spoilers, a quick synopsis, and why it was good or bad.

Tape 47: This is the generalized tape that leads the investigators to the house, They're searching for a boy gone missing. I thought it was a much needed improvement over the first generalized tape in V/H/S. I'll leave it at that and say that the end result of their journey to this house leaves the audience to decide what happened

Clinical Trials: 7.5/10 This is about a man who gets a cybernetic eye attached to his eye but its on a trial period because it is new technology. He begins to experience strange hallucinations and other weird things that happen to him. Overall this one was the weakest link of them all for me, The effects though and scares were excellent but the whole story to this one just didn't seem to fit too much. It was still highly enjoyable though.

A Ride In The Park: 9.5/10 LOVED this one and probably one of my new favourite zombie shorts ever. The synopsis: A man riding his bike that becomes infected from some campers. The camera on his bike helmet slowly unfolds the chronology of what happens after he is infected and how the plague spreads. MAN if they could do this idea in a big city or something...wow it was so well executed, the effects, acting, and how it developed had me glued to the screen.

Sacred Haven: 9.7/10 This was about a documentary crew that sets out to film a religious place that supposedly involves a lot of controversy. The guy that directed the segment "L is for Libido" in ABC's of Death did this one and that segment in that other movie was the best of the alphabet so I was amped about this one. This one probably had the strongest story of the bunch and was probably my favourite. It was scary, disturbing, yet insanely intense at the same time. As this one unfolds it gets quite unsettling very fast

Slumber Party Alien Abduction: 8/10 Well the synopsis for this one is pretty much in the title. I felt like they could have approached this one in a different manner but it still really impressed me. You'll get a few chuckles out of the story in the beginning in this one. You'll also get a few hints along the way before the storm hits that something very bad is going to happen. This one felt really disturbing at the end but it was extremely well done. My only qualms with it was I felt that they shouldn't have jumped to the action so quickly and built it up more gradually instead. STILL very good though

Final Thoughts: This film is a huge tribute to horror fans everywhere and is top notch quality. I really hope this film takes off and more people see it because it is just too good not to see in my opinion, ESPECIALLY if you love horror and hand held footage. I feel extremely satisfied and very grateful that the directors made this piece of artwork for us to all enjoy.
