V/H/S/2 (2013) Review:

As for the first VHS, this one is a compilation of short horror features arranged around a backbone story. My first impression after seeing this sequel is that they made the right choice here by compiling fewer shorts (only five including the main story), but of much better quality.

The first one is the scary one, a classic but efficient ghost story. The second one is the funny one, a great zombie short seen from an unusual and innovative point of view and filled with over-exaggerated gory scenes. The third one is the disturbing one, it follows the sick deed of a sect doing notorious for involving children. The atmosphere here is really strange and truly creepy; it was also my favorite one. The fourth one is the useless one…a really lame and common alien short; it managed to truly disappoint me after such a great start.

As for the first VHS, the backbone story is bad, and a stupid pretext for the rest. But this can easily be forgotten and V/H/S/2 is well-worth watching simply for the three first shorts, which represent 70% of the movie length anyway.

A little word about the overuse of flashes, shaking, and bad quality shots are necessary. All these features are used to simulate real amateur recording but end up being detrimental to the overall experience. Watching it at the cinema almost made me sick.

I choose to give it a 7.5 / 10, but V/H/S/2 could have had a much better rating if it wasn’t for the last short and the shaky camera. In any case, it is a great sequel that both those who liked and disliked the first VHS should watch, it is simply much better!

I give it a 7.5 / 10
