    Just released onto VOD/MOD, I'm not a fan of the "found footage" sub-genre completely, but this one did stick out like a decapitated thumb (in a great way!).

    A group of guys are hired by a 3rd party to break into a man's house to find this particular "vhs" tape (of the snuff variety). So each "anthology" tale is the next vhs they put in to watch out of the guys collection in the film (all directed by up & coming horror directors)!

    Each tale involves: Vampire, a Alien of some sort, a pov stalker/slasher, & supernatural haunting.



    Just passin' the love! icon_twisted.gif

    I think REC is not only the best found-footage style movie of all time (altho Cloverfield, Blair Witch, Quarantine, and the Paranormal Activity's are decent), it's probably one of the only movies that's actually scared me.

    I think most horror movies these days are total garbage, but this VHS actually looks really good. I love the found footage genre. The only good horror movies of the past 12 years I can think of besides them right now are Trick R Treat, Hills Have Eyes,and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. The fact I can only think of 3 right now makes me sad.

    Have you not seen the POS that were released in the 80s and 90s? Horror has always been a genre that has attracted tons of crap. In fact, we have a genre of B horror movies (which I love, but some are unwatchable!)

    Also, your list is really bad dude. You need to get out and watch more movies. The Hills have Eyes? That was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. If I wanted to see monster rape porn thats what I would have watched.

    Check out 28 Days Later (not only a great horror movie, I know some folks who say it is one of their favorite movies in general), 30 days of Night (again, same thing), The Innkeepers, and a couple others I cant think of right now.

    Yes Horror movies can be crap, but when they hit they fucking hit dude. Like I said, if you thought those were good take a look at the ones I recommended, they are way better.

    This film is utterly disturbing. It should be shown in schools & such as a warning imo.

    There are TONS of awesome horror films from the 80s!!! Sure, any decade has its dreck (& trust me this past decade has seen the worst of it!)

    Most horror fanatics I know of prefer the heyday of horror (70s-80s). At least back then it was something new, fun, awesome NON-CGI effects (CGI is shit in the horror genre!).

    Oh I agree there are great horror movies in those times, and a lot of shit too just like today. Its just a pet peeve of mine when people say things like "the movies today suck compared to what came out before.". No, its just we see the shit today that didn't survive 10 years ago.

    Hills Have Eyes is without a doubt one of the few remakes that actually surpasses the original; I don't care if it has more gore than most, it's a good movie with actual renowned actors like Ted Levine or Kathleen Quinlan instead of hot 20 somethings who'll be forgotten in 5 years.

    And I said the only ones I can think of at the moment. I've seen 28 Days Later, and I agree it's amazing. But 30 Days of Night sucked balls. Are you kidding me? So you hate Hills for gore but you like the movie that was just filled with so many unnecessary townspeople who were just vampire fodder I couldn't even keep track of who died and who was still alive. Only good thing I remember about that crap was that one aerial shot showing the town dying, and Ben Foster.
