When a group of petty criminals are hired by a mysterious party to burglarize a rundown house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body sits before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks of videos. In their search for the right tape, the crew watches a number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.

Bringing together some of the top filmmakers in the game today the horror anthology sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, shock, and downright brutality. The creative minds behind V/H/S shatter any preconceived notions about the genre, making it feel inventive and captivating once again. The V/H/S Directors include Sidewalk alums Joe Swanberg and Ti West and Alabama-based Adam Wingard.


Screening with the short films "JPBF" and "I Am Your Grandma."


It may look like an ordinary office, and it may seem like an ordinary job, but you'd be surprised what they do at JPBF Inc.

I Am Your Grandma

This addictive short is framed as a video message recorded to show a future grandchild what their grandma was like when she was younger. And apparently grandma was a creative, musical freak of nature, who enjoyed committing imagery to video that, at best, would give a grandchild a better understanding of how cool grandma was and, at worst, would scar the grandkid for life.
