ok. an extra half star though for the tape with the guy and girl on vacation that ends in the girl's lesbian lover stabbing the guy in the throat and making out with the girl and them running away together. that was pretty badass
So after hearing about this movie for a looooong while, and actually getting one of the directors to be a judge on this online film festival I ran for like two years or so - I've finally made to watch both this and the sequel. For this one, this and the other would be a bit much different as I will rank and leave my opinion on each of the stories. So let's do it!
Parents need to know that V/H/S is a horror anthology film that's dedicated to the concept of shooting quickly and simply on home video, so almost all of the segments are shown from the point of view of a character with a camera of some sort. There's lots of graphic horror violence, with plenty of slashing, slicing, gore, and dead bodies, as well as spooky stuff. There's also some nudity (breasts, bottoms), sex, and heavy innuendo. Characters also drink heavily, snort cocaine, and smoke pot, and language is very strong, with many uses of \"f--k,\" \"s--t,\" and more. There will be no keeping teen horror fans away, but it's recommended for 17 and up.
A group of Internet pranksters is given the task of breaking into an old house and stealing a certain VHS videotape. The robbers pop random tapes into a player and watch five different \"stories\": A group of partiers attempts to pick up a couple of girls in a bar, only to discover that one of them isn't quite human. A couple on their second honeymoon is visited by a mysterious figure. A group of friends ventures into the woods, where a bizarre killer is known to have struck. A doctor speaks to his new girlfriend over Skype, trying to help her out with her ghost sightings and paranormal happenings. And three friends attend a Halloween party at the wrong house, stumbling into a kind of deadly cult ritual.
Overall, V/H/S is a unique and effective movie for fans of the genre. Horror anthologies have a long history, stretching back to Waxworks (1923) and reaching a high water mark with Dead of Night (1945). V/H/S seems mainly dedicated to fans who watched these films and many others on muddy old video tapes, or perhaps made their own. The quality in V/H/S is unfailingly low -- intentionally -- with sloppy hand-held camerawork and fuzzy framing. It might even be better to see it at home, rather than on a big screen.
But the spirit is willing, and all six segments come up with some genuinely spooky ideas. And, unlike many horror anthologies, the quality is consistent. No one segment is noticeably better or worse than the others, though the terrific director Ti West (The Innkeepers) seems more focused on characters in his segment, \"Second Honeymoon.\" And the visual effects in the last segment, \"10/31/98,\" are very impressive, especially in contrast to the grungy video imagery.

The demo is fully functional except for the fact that every now and then it will silence out, you cannot save parameter values with your session and the plugin will not respond to automation coming from the host.
This plugin really does the trick. My mixes are clearer on every system since I mix with VHS on the master bus. And what's more, it's the first plugin that support my headphone!In the first version there was a problem but the support is great and the problem is solved now. Thanks Maso for your great work!And don't forget the price, compare it with others and you walk with a smile forever!
I like the sound of the room simulation. very subtle and natural. It doesn't support my headphone though so I can't really use it and have to rely on other products. Please add the profile for the Beyerdynamics 1990 Pro (balanced). Best. Vince
Great plugin! Nice to see an affordable competitor to the big boys. Luckily, you have my two brands (ATH-M50x & MDR7506), and it deals with the low end bumps nicely. I would prefer it if there was some auto-gain compensation; the profiles tend to lower the gain by 6-8dB, making A/B-ing difficult.
Very interesting plugin, though it doesn't support my specific headphone model. It would be awesome if there were a way to use a measurement mic to add custom headphone profiles. Fantastic idea though, and I might consider buying a pair of headphones from the supported list in the future to take full advantage of this plugin.
Johannes Roberts (Resident Evil: Welcome To Racoon City) follows with sorority hazing tale \"Suicide Bid,\" a torturous grab-bag of excruciating paranoias. Hopeful Beta Sigma Eta pledge Lily (Ally Ioannides) is lowered into a coffin and told by her prospective sisters she must spend the night underground if she wants admittance. Roberts does a tremendous job commanding claustrophobic tension as poor Lily falls victim to a horrible prank turned horrific lock-in. \"Suicide Bid\" uses confinement, arachnophobia, and aquaphobia to exceptional degrees but goes too far in the finale. There's ample spine-tingling terror as Barbie BSE meanies cackle while a freshman cowers below dirt clumps and rain-soaked mud, all before the gossipy curse of a pledge who died underground in the same graveyard becomes another chance to inject practical monster effects. Everything else in the segment works so well that it's hard to take the haunted maze effects seriously. It's still a winner, just a bit too ambitious when already frightening on all cylinders.
One of the coolest up-and-coming filmmakers horror fans should get to know is Natasha Kermani, who broke onto the scene with the indie Imitation Girl and saw huge festival success with Lucky. Natasha is going to fill theater seats with her shocker of a segment.

Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia (VHS) is a deadly fish virus that was first discovered in Lake Winnebago in 2006. It's not a threat to people who handle infected fish or want to eat their catch, but it is a threat to a variety of fish species. It is very important that everyone do their part to prevent the spread of VHS and help keep Wisconsin's waters healthy.
Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia (VHS) is a deadly fish virus and an invasive species that is threatening Wisconsin's fish. VHS was diagnosed for the first time ever in the Great Lakes as the cause of large fish kills in lakes Huron, St. Clair, Erie, Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River in 2005 and 2006. Thousands of muskies, walleye, lake whitefish, freshwater drum, yellow perch, gizzard shad, redhorse and round gobies died. Many Chinook salmon, white bass, emerald shiners, smallmouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, burbot, and northern pike were diseased but did not die in large numbers.
It's not a threat to people who handle infected fish or want to eat their catch, but it is a threat to the more than 25 fish species [PDF] it can kill. This is the first time a virus has affected so many different fish species from so many fish families in the Great Lakes. VHS virus is considered an invasive species (not native to the Great Lakes), but scientists are not sure how the virus arrived. It may have come in with migrating fish from the Atlantic Coast or may have hitch-hiked in ballast water from ships.
VHS was found in European freshwater trout dating to the late 1930s and continues to cause epidemics in European trout farms; it first appeared on the U.S. West Coast in 1988 in marine trout and salmon and started to be noticed in marine fish off the eastern Canadian province of New Brunswick from 2000-2004. It was first detected in Great Lakes freshwater fish in 2005. The virus found in Wisconsin is a new genetic strain that's most closely related to the virus found in the Pacific Northwest, rather than the strain found in Europe.
Test results from 2006 to 2012 show that VHS has only been detected in fish from the Lake Winnebago system, Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, and Green Bay, and hasn't spread more widely in Wisconsin, as originally feared. Those results suggest there's a very real hope that VHS can be kept out of most of Wisconsin's lakes and rivers, where it could prove a serious threat to a broad range of native fish.
Recently Robert Kim and Mohamed Faisal of Michigan State University investigated the relative susceptibility of eight important sportfish species to VHS. [PDF] They injected a number of fish from each species with a wide range of doses VHSv to determine the level at which 50 percent of the fish of each species died. They found that muskellunge was most susceptible, followed by largemouth bass, yellow perch, rainbow trout, brook trout, brown trout, Chinook salmon, and coho salmon. In general, the cold water fish species faired better, meaning they could tolerate a higher dose of VHSv, than the warmer water species. Results are important to understand where management actions should focus to prevent population-level impacts of VHSv should it occur. 59ce067264
