Plot – Spoilers:
V/H/S is a found-footage anthology movie consisting of 6 short films with a broad frame-narrative intercut by the 6 shorts.
A bunch of antisocial guys who film their activities that include sharking women which they sell online, get an offer to steal a VHS tape from an old man. The money’s good and way better than they’ve ever seen, so they think what the heck and go for it. On reaching the old man’s place, they find him dead in his chair in front of a flickering TV set. The group splits up to search for the tape while one of them sets about watching the tape in the VCR lying there. Each of the 6 short films are movies contained in this VHS tape. As each short rolls on, the group is in different stages of their search and shit happening.
