Synopsis

A group of small-time thieves are hired to steal some videotapes located in a deserted house. When they arrive there, the gang realizes that the job isn’t going to be as simple as it seemed: awaiting them in the house is a dead body surrounded by televisions and old VHS players that contain strange and terrifying recordings. Disassociating itself from the common places surrounding movies based on supposed found footage, V/H/S brings together some of the leading names in this genre to make a spine-chilling episode film that frontally attacks dozens of primitive fears and that has a delightful lo-fi aroma.
