VHS Official Redband Trailer Impressions: Found Footage Anthology Horror Film That Seems To Offer Something Special?

VHS is a 2012 found footage anthology horror film from Magnet Releasing and The Collective slated for a Fall (October) 2012 theatrical release. VHS made its debut and was an official entry for the Sundance Film Festival back in January 2012. Let's check out this anthology horror film handled by a number of Hollywood directors and writers:

A POV, found footage horror film from the perspective of America's top genre filmmakers.

As a horror fan I can say that I am a bit hyped up with how VHS has to offer. The trailer itself has some pretty interesting and creepy things to show. Given the number of writers and directors working on each of the five titles included in this film, you might either find one or two (if not all five) horror gems in this found footage film.

The presentation might of the film might alienate and even disappoint some film fans, and there is no blaming them for that. The title is VHS so expect that the directors would aim for the lowest quality to emulate what a VHS recorded story would be like. Whether to cut cost productions or sheer artistry, let's just hope that there is a good story to make up for the somewhat "bad" presentation. Most horror fans will surely check this out when they think that there is something special in this film, and there are a lot! What I can make up is that there is a demonic female vampire, a ghostly child, and poltergeists or evil spirits in the basement. There might be more as it is five horror stories rolled into one, but one thing is certain I'll definitely catch this horror film.
