I truly enjoyed V/H/S so when I stumbled across it’s sequel, the aptly named S-VHS, I instantly added it to my watch list.  Like I’ve said earlier I’m not a huge fan of anthologies but V/H/S and the soon to be released The ABC’s of Death are changing my mind on this type of film.  Check out the trailer and see what you think, personally I think it looks pretty cool.  I’ll get a better poster up when one is released.  Enjoy.  S-VHS @ IMDb.

Checked out V/H/S last night and enjoyed it very much, despite hating anthology based flicks. The film is a grainy grindhouse(ish) mash-up of several genre’s of horror held together by a shaky not-so cohesive main plot. The main section of V/H/S has a dark and gritty 80’s feel to it, though I found it to be the weakest part of the film it does not detract from the individual storylines presented throughout. Each segment is portrayed via found footage compiled on a V/H/S tape and involves different characters and locations. Here is a general breakdown of each story minus any spoilers ofcourse.
