Movie Summary

A group of thrill seekers are employed to break into a house and steal a VHS tape. The deals seems simple enough and promised to pay them well. They get to the house at first it seems abandoned but upon looking around the house they come upon what they think is a dead body, in a chair and an array of television screens and tapes. They are unsure as to what tape exactly they needed so they left a person in the room to watch what was on the tapes, while the others search around the house for more tapes.

The person starts viewing the tapes, each is more disturbing than the next, each of thrill seekers is killed off one by one and then they realize that the “dead guy” is not really dead and that some freaky stuff was going down with the house.

Review

One of the scariest, horror movies I have ever seen, well the VHS tapes anyway, the actual movie wasn’t scary but actually surprising. If you are a horror movie lover I would recommend you watch this movie.
