I wasn’t a fan of the 2012 found footage flick “V/H/S.” While others were quick to toss the film into their Top 10 lists for the year, I thought it was among the worst. This makes me think that maybe my finger has slipped off the pulse of horror as of late. After all, very few people seemed to find the film boring, bland, and uninspired.
And while there are a ton of badass directors attached to “S-VHS,” I still can’t muster up any excitement. The involvement of both Gareth Evans and Jason Eisener doesn’t change anything, either. Instead of watching the sequel and then writing a cruddy review filled with snobby posturing from a jaded genre fan, I think I’ll just leave this one to the fans.
Here’s what Bloody Disgusting had to say about the movie:
The first movie followed a group of students hired to break into a desolate house to find a lost VHS tape, paving the way for the movie to go into a series of found-footage stories directed by up-and-coming genre filmmakers. The new movie, starring Adam Wingard, Kelsy Abbott, Lawrence Michael, Levine Hannah Hughes and L.C. Holt, follows a similar structure, with a pair of investigators discovering a tape while looking for a student.
The folks at Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive look at the clip before it eventually found its way onto YouTube. You can check out the first teaser for “S-VHS” below. Remember: the sequel follows a similar structure. That’s all I’m saying.
