Instead of drugs, two drug addicts (Hannah Ramirez, Josiah Spargo) buy
a bag of VHS tapes from their pusher, and in their stupor watch it one
after the other, getting worse with each tape:
- Suburban She Freak: Mary's (Courtney Morgan) face is weirdly
disfigured - so she has ordered a beauty potion - that unfortunately
turns her into a vampire ...
- Kim: In a world overrun by zombies, a radio announcer details his
experiences of becoming a zombie ...
- Christmas Krampus: Mom (Tara Carlton) and dad (Rosasio
LaMontagne) want to give their son (Jared Leve Squee) away for
adoption because he's retarded - but he's got a friend: Evil Santa
- Regenerate: Paralyzed Ginny (Ali de Morgoli) suffers from
constant verbal and physical abuse by her husband Paul (Walter
Ruether), so much so that her best friend Stacy (Katie MacDowell)
gives her some untested medication to improve her situation. Before
the medication takes effect though, Paul kills Ginny. But the
medication does kick in after death and ...
- Lepus: A man in an Easter bunny costume (Brian Everet Smith)
terrorizes the city - so the Sheriff (Tyler Gallant) dresses up as
Jesus (and might be Him even) to fight him ...

What's important to understand when watching Death by VHS is
this: These guys haven't set out to make the best thing ever but a trashy
and slightly tongue in cheek hommage to trashy shot-on-video genre movies
from 2 to 3 decades ago - and these guys have really achieved to do just
that, presenting us with a wild mix of then current horror mainstays,
plenty of gore effects (some better, some worse) and a fittingly blunt
directorial approach. Sure, some episodes are crappier than others, and
you will like some episodes more than others (maybe exactly the crappier
ones), but overall, this mix would make a perfect party tape - if it was
on tape then ;)
Good fun, really!
