V/H/S Premiere Weekend

I got myself down to the NuArt theater in West LA last night, where I finally got to see V/H/S in all it's glory!  I've been talking about this movie so long, I was excited to finally end the mystery.

You'd Beta See It!

It was a big, excited crowd out front, a long line to see the much anticipated film. Justin, Tyler, the rest of Radio Silence and the other filmmakers where in attendance, doing some Q&As and giving away swag.  All well and good, but how was the movie? As I sat down with my popcorn and bigger-than-it-needed-to-be Coke, I honestly didn't know what to expect.

Let me tell you, it was a really scary, weird, fun movie! I enjoyed the variety of stories, characters, and the different ways they played with the conventions and tropes (that's for you, Matt) of horror films (and the 'found footage' sub-genre).  I was definitely freaked out at moments throughout the film, but I do want to mention that the movie has a funny side as well. There's plenty of times in the movie where I legitimately laughed at something the characters said or did.  It's nice to see a horror movie that takes itself seriously, but not that seriously. Here's a review from our friend rainydayrun for another perspective.

I highly recommend seeing V/H/S in the theater if you can.  It was a kick watching it with a crowd that responded to all the crazy moments in the film.  Check your local listings if it's playing in a town near you!  And go check out our pals Radio Silence at tonight's shows at the Nuart (at 7:00 and 9:40)! Tell 'em Andy sent ya. Of course, if you can't make it out, you can still catch it on VOD or iTunes.

Here's some pics from my adventure last night:

Here I am with the famous Justin Martinez of Radio Silence. So proud of all the guys!
