  • The ABCs of Death 2013

    ★★½ Watched 24 Mar, 2013

    "A hard one to rate, but ultimately a disappointment. I only truly enjoyed maybe three of the shorts, and found most to be either a let down or of poor quality. I get what the point of this was and it certainly makes for interesting conversation, but i can't see myself visiting this again as there was just far too much that i didn't like, save a select few.

    Ti West's contribution was an absolute joke. However Dogfight, Libido, Toilet and XXL stood out to me. The rest...easily forgettable."

  • V/H/S 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Aug, 2012

    Great anthology of found footage horror shorts. The genre was wearing very thin for me but this collection goes to show that it still has legs, if done well, without the boring cliches.

    Each segment had effective scares and tension (some more than others of course) and because there are restrictions on how long each story can be they all move along at a nice pace.

    My only real issue is that the reason for the VHS tapes being in the same place was never explained, as well as the characters reactions (well, lack of reactions!) to viewing the tapes.

    ★★★★½ Watched 12 Apr, 2012

    One of the most genuinely funny films I've seen for quite some time. It never relies on in your face, over the top humour, instead using well written and sharp dialogue to get it's laughs.
