Plot Summary: Witness a hellish vision of 1999, as social isolation, analog technology and disturbing home videos fuse into a nightmare of found footage savagery.

Poster - Title Card rating: notes: These are always a mixed bag, and this is one of the weaker bags. "To Hell And Back" is fun, "Suicide Bid" is good enough. I liked the first half of "Ozzy's Dungeon" when it was darkly satirical, but then it just became mean for mean's sake and the pacing slowed to a crawl. The other shorts were very bro-y and involved a lot of idiots yelling and doing stupid things for very little payoff.

"V/H/S/99," which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival before a Shudder drop next month, is a vicious, angry movie. Perhaps it's merely coincidental, but it feels intentional in the manner in which these found footage short films all seem to feature people, well, "f**king around and finding out." Some have suggested that the film should have been called "V/H/S/Y2K" but I think it's not for a reason. This is not about the launch of a new millennium—it's about the end of an old one, a slammed door on irresponsible idiots, mean sorority girls, manipulative TV personalities, and more. As an overall film, I found it more inconsistent than the stronger reboot "V/H/S/94" as a few of the segments here just don't work, but I admired the angry yell that this film resembles as a whole. I'm still in the camp that hopes they make a new one of these every year.
