Holy creepiness!  V/H/S opens with a gang of miscreants, who have been given the assignment to retrieve a videotape from an abandoned house.  Upon arriving at the house, they find a dead man sitting in a chair, and stacks and stacks of tapes.  The guys begin watching the tapes.  We watch along with them and see five separate vignettes.  Each short has a different director, and while they're all very different, I did notice a theme - they all involve something going horribly wrong!  A night out on the town to pick up girls, a second honeymoon trip, a walk in the woods, a long-distance relationship, a Halloween party.  Some were better than others - I'd say three of the shorts were decent, one was pretty bad, and one left me confused.  The overarching storyline of the band of thieves breaking into the abandoned house was kind of dumb, too.  But, all in all, V/H/S was a fun scary movie to cap off the month.  6 out of 10.
