      Amy Nicholson FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I was just howling and thinking "Wow, Flying Lotus... Your brain is very weird." Oct 24, 2022 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times Each segment runs too long; and none of them has the kind of killer ending an anthology film deserves. But they do all deliver what they promise: a 1999 look and vibe, with moments designed to make audiences squirm. Oct 21, 2022 Full Review Jason Zinoman New York Times “V/H/S/99” smartly dispenses with the wraparound plot that was always the worst part of all its predecessors, but finds a creative if unnecessary connective tissue. Oct 20, 2022 Full Review Lucas Moore JVS Media & Productions/Team JVS The two segments in the middle of V/H/S 99 completely drag the movie down from really good to bad. Ozzy's Dungeon and The Gawkers segments have no elements of horror in them. They feel like a poorly executed attempt at comedy that's not funny at all. Rated: D Aug 11, 2023 Full Review Dolores Quintana Dolores Quintana V/H/S/99 amps up the comedy and the mercilessness while going in a new direction that is not only true to the series’ aims, and the time period in which it is set, but is a challenge to its audience. Dec 28, 2022 Full Review Marco Vito Oddo Collider At a 108 minutes runtime, V/H/S/99 might test the patience of some viewers. Still, this is the best the franchise ever gave us, and we can’t wait to see what new horror V/H/S/85 will bring us next year. Rated: B+ Dec 28, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Logan D A VHS tape from '99 holds thrills and chills. Solid mix of short tales. The homemade stop motion bits were hilarious. The tales: Shredding--a punk rock band that loves pulling pranks break into a condemned music venue in which the members of their favorite band perished in a fire. Overly long build-up to the action but finale is frenetic. Suicide Bid--a sorority pledge is made to stay in a coffin overnight. Gripping performance from lead. Ozzy's Dungeon--a children's game show hides a dark secret. The weakest of all of them but the finale is amazing. The Gawkers--young boys decide to spy on their sexy new neighbor. Hilarious and scary. To Hell and Back--what happens when a summoning goes wrong. Features Melanie Stone from the Mythica series chewing up the scenery as a mix of Gollum and Dobby. Recommended Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Arturo B Es lo peor que he visto en mi vida. La peor combinación de imitación de cortos, mal actuados, mal filmados, sin pies ni cabeza, carentes de historia y coherencia. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Ken B This was a bit better than I thought it would be. There were some cute guys in this! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Audience Member Not as good as some of the earlier VHS films, I would pass on this one Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/21/23 Full Review Patrick M Utter tripe. I've been a fan of the V/H/S series since the first one and it's a travesty to see what it's become. Usually there's only one or two bad segments per film but since moving to Shudder the quality has dropped dramatically. A bunch of the shots are a noticeably higher resolution than the VHS it claims to be filmed on, and it's painfully obvious. Plus there are glaring audio sync issues; yells that don't match up with the mouths on screen for example. Overall a dreadful movie I wouldn't recommend to anybody who's a fan of the previous entries to the franchise. But still, I had to suffer through each of these individual sections and via the medium of criticism, now you can too! I'll try to keep this as spoiler free as possible, just in case you don't heed my warning that staring at a blank wall in complete silence for 2 hours would be preferable to watching this movie. The first section with the bands is just a dreadful cringe-fest of teenagers having been written by people who've never even been in the same building as teenagers. The dialogue made my skin crawl and just as you think it's about to be even remotely rewarding, it lets you down worse than I did my parents when I decided to be a musician myself. 2/10, for at least having a decent premise in the middle. Then it takes you to the sorority hazing video. The less said about this the better. I didn't even realise I was watching the main part of that segment, I thought I was still in the setup. I found myself waiting for the good bit, and then it gives you the "payoff" as if it had even earned it. In earlier films there was a story to be told in each tape, but this lacks any sort of substance at all and relies entirely on the makeup effects and claustrophobia to provide the scare. 0/10, Ryan Reynolds did it better. Ugh, moving forward unfortunately and we end up at the game show segment. You know what? The actual game show itself was an interesting idea. It's a real shame they took it in the direction they did. I would have stayed on set with that, have things slowly start to devolve over time and then have the final test of the game show provide the scare. But it switches to some kind of torture-p*rn for a spell, and dives balls-first in to the supernatural for seemingly no reason at all. Again, nothing of this is earned and whoever half-baked this idea needs to be removed from the Shudder kitchen immediately. 1/10, a single point awarded for nearly having an original idea. Next the tape that has been providing the link between each of the tapes gets recorded over by the brother of the kid making the link tape, which I would give credit to, but the link tape in previous movies had a reason for them to be linked. The 2nd film did this best, with the investigators looking for the man who was a tape collector. This just seems to be a bunch of perverts for the worst part of 15 minutes with diabolical dialogue; once again proving the creators of this film have never seen a teenager up close (presumably for legal reasons). You might as well skip to when you see the gratuitous breasts in this one because you're missing absolutely nothing. 0/10, arguably a worse rehash of the spy-glasses segment from a previous entry The closing part suffers from a bad case of "I'm so startled" syndrome, but otherwise I've got to give props for originality. Comes in strong and drops you right in it, along with the protagonists. The comedy could be toned down a lot, as it detracts from this being the single solitary unnerving part of the entire movie. I'll be generous and give this one a 6/10 for being a strong premise and an interesting exploration of comradery, albeit completely out of place in a movie like this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/01/23 Full Review Axel Andres S De los V/H/S este sería uno de los más flojos de la Saga, pero igual esta entrega cumple lo prometido en algunos metrajes de la cinta, en especial en la historia de la chica que se lastima la pierna en el programa de concursos en donde el final de la cinta es de bastante horror cósmico pero igual es una entrega bastante pasable.
