Red Band Trailer for Horror Movie V/H/S
Remember VHS? Those big, bulky plastic rectangles of analog recorded video tape. The picture quality was suspect and the audio clarity muddy at best. And depending on the brand of VCR you owned, odds are tapes would get eaten more often than not. Ahh, the good ol’ days, when technology seemed advanced, but in reality was crap. Horror movies today are very similar. On the surface, they appear original and inventive, but dig a little deeper and you soon discover they’re all style and no substance. I’m not sure what to make of the five-story anthology V/H/S, which caused a stir at Sundance a few months ago. I mean, found footage flicks are a dime a dozen. The red band trailer is weird and disturbing, although calling it scary would be a stretch.
