Would horror lovers enjoy watching VHS?
VHS had a pretty cool concept, however the execution of it wasn’t the best. We did not enjoy this film, as the stories on the tapes were just too ridiculous. All of the concepts in VHS seemed to contain the same structure to them. This being, a strange or creepy series of events, followed by the person/ people who are filming freaking out over it. The events were just so unbelievable too, such as vampires. The worst part is, the vampire isn’t even explained as to why the woman is one, which just leaves the audience in a confused state.
There are a couple of creepy moments in the film, but overall, we feel that it was a bit of a let-down. If you were going to watch a horror film with this type of scare factor, then VHS 2 is a far better and a much better watch.
