Last week I helped to promote the release of V/H/S.
V/H/S is a horror film, shot in POV (Blair Witch style). A group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarise 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.
The film is based on these found videos, and are put together episodically. As I was watching the first scene, I wasn’t expecting much, but I was confronted with a lot of surprising, and engaging stories, with a lot of unexpected twists and turns. A nice surprise after sitting down with such low expectations.
The lovely people at Fetch Publicity sent me a copy of the film on DVD and video cassette, which is a nice touch. It’s been a while since I have had a video in my hands, and it’s quite bizarre to see the year 2013 on it. A nice bit of movie memorabilia, to show the grandkids.
V/H/S is out on DVD now in the UK, and if you are a US resident and have Netflix, then you can find it on there too.
