V/H/S is a US horror film that is presented as 'found footage'. A group of young men are hired by a mysterious person to raid a house and find a particular VHS tape. But they realise it contains a series of seemingly unconnected killings and unexplained phenomena. The film is rated 18 for strong bloody violence, horror and gore.

V/H/S contains mundane activities captured on film which are punctuated by moments of strong violence, portrayed as both real and supernatural, and gore. Scenes include the bloody cutting of a throat, sight of people being cut open and their intestines spilled, and a foetus being extracted by hand from an unconscious woman's stomach.

The film also contains strong threat, the use of strong language ('f**K' and 'motherf***er') and sexualised nudity.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger that 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
