V/H/S

VHSV/H/S is a 2012 anthology horror film written and directed by Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, Tyler Gillet, Justin Martinez, Chad Villella, and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin.  The film’s plot involves a group of four young criminals who videotape their crimes that they commit.  They are hired by an unknown individual who gives them directions to break into a house and steal a single specific VHS tape.  The house, though, is filled with a basement full of VHS tapes.  The four split up into the house: two of them searching the basement, one of them searching the entire house, and one man finds a room with the dead home owner sitting in a chair facing at a blank TV screen.  There are several tapes stacked on top of the television, and from that point in the film the man begins watching all of those tapes.  The movie then turns into a series of short films, each one more disturbing and unexplainable than the next, and completely unrelated to the previous one.  After about an hour or so, the men find out that they are not alone in the house.  The film is of the found-footage horror genre, and consists of entirely found footage.  Each short film which is found by the four criminals in the movie is directed by a different director, which is why the movie has so many directors.  The base story, or the VHS tape about the four criminals, is directed by Adam Wingard.  V/H/S is an extremely disturbing psychological horror story, and has a sequel that was released this year and is supposed to be even more disturbing.
