    There are five stories all together, but that's pretty much just the first segment and a little bit in the last segment. Also the wraparound is pretty bad in that department, but if you made it to the first segment, then you're already past the worst of the wraparound.

    Can't say if you'll like the film or not, but the "bro-talk" does die down considerably after the first segment. And the first segment does pay off extremely well. I'd say at least stick it out through that.

    I would say don't bother. Anthologies are one of my favourite subgenres, and I don't mind found footage films when done right. I thought V/H/S was a piece of crap. Terribly shot, bad acting, and stories that go nowhere with no surprise endings. The only story I didn't mind was the last one with a group of teens accidentally entering a house where an exorcist is going on, and even that one was just okay. Skip V/H/S and check out the far superior V/H/S/2. The stories are actually creative and well done, decently shot, and the acting is for the most part much better as well. V/H/S was just an abysmal mess in my opinion, amateur in every way which is rather sad considering the talent behind it.
