House of VHS (2016) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Gautier Cazenave
STARRING: Florie Auclerc, Ruy Buchholz, Morgan Lamorté
AVAILABLE FROM Darkside Releasing

House of VHS was a movie I had a big interest in between for one it has a plot that has to do with VHS and I’m all about that. And for two because the plot of the movie seemed to be a lot like a movie I made myself a couple of years ago. So, yes, we have people being sucked into VHS tapes but before we get to that part we have a whole lot of nothing much going on. The movie Six international students decide to spend their spring break in the French countryside. They discover a VCR with uncanny powers…House of VHS (aka Ghosts in the Machine) is a supernatural film where six young people come face to face with a haunted VCR in an abandoned French house.

plays out like a horror-comedy, people arrive in a house to get away from things and find a giant supply of VHS tapes that they spend the movie watching with very little in the way of conflict until the end. I’m not sure what they were going for with that but it makes for a bit of a frustrating watch in spots as we get closer and closer to where the movie should be hitting the end stretch and nothing has really happened yet. The characters can be funny from time to time and entertaining in spots but they aren’t entertaining and funny enough to just watch them the final fifteen minutes when something finally happens.

So everything leads until the last fifteen minutes when stuff finally hits the fan for the characters in the movie. One snaps, one gets sucked into a tape where it pretty much is just left at that and then one dies in a way that I will give praise too but I don’t want to spoil. That death in question is probably the best part of the movie and the main reason to watch it if you want to check it out. If the rest of the movie was like the last little part of it we’d have a classic on our hands, instead, we are left with a movie that is just frustrating in the majority of its running time with the only bright spot coming when the ending credits are about to roll.
