High expectations yield mixed results in ‘V/H/S,’ ‘A Separation’

It’s September, so as far as I’m concerned we are now in the midst of the holiday season. (Yes, I start celebrating a tad earlier than most, and I’m having to resist the urge to bust out the Christmas music before November.) For me, the first leg of this four-month celebration involves the viewing of as many horror movies as humanly possible — a valid goal year-round, to be sure, but particularly pertinent as we approach Halloween.

I thought I was going to have a humdinger of a recommendation for fellow horror hounds with “V/H/S,” the emerging cult favorite that caused quite a hullabaloo on the festival circuit and quickly built a reputation as a must-see for genre fans. I’d been looking forward to it for months and finally got the chance to see it for myself since it became available on cable (it’s also set to roll out into theaters in limited release closer to Halloween). Sadly, I can’t remember the last time I was so disappointed with a movie that I was so sure was going to be a winner.
