Synopsis

From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes S-VHS, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre.

  • Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    The "found-footage" film done right in today's indie horror genre. Although, I haven't seen the original yet but this film has plenty of good scares and gore as well the style of each episode's cinematography. And cannot believe there is a third V/H/S out there now. My favorite tape was "Safe Haven", pretty weird & mind-blowingly frightening on the rest. As for all of V/HS/2, the result is "reel" horror.

  • Palmat's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    Liked this one somewhat better than the first one. The frame story is basically a rehash of the one in the first film but for me it worked.. The individual segments are a mixed bag. I thought that "Safe Haven" was the most successful one, except for the whole creature thing.

  • mjgildea's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    V/H/S/2 is a sequel that's essentially more of the same in context of the original, but the stories are more disturbing, namely the Indonesian cult story. The zombie story was an interesting and original take on a quickly dwindling genre but that last segment was like a heartbreaking ET on PCP & LSD. V/H/S/2 isn't anything new, but they turned the volume way up for it.

  • Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    The episodes are perhaps more universally solid, if not as individually strong, as the ones in the original film, but this 2nd film in the horror anthology franchise still has some creative jolts to offer. The zombie POV cam is a creative twist on the genre, and the alien abduction finale is a genuinely creepy highlight. Feels a bit rushed to get their scares in, but overall a mostly effective & entertaining package.

  • Michael H.'s rating of the film V/H/S/2

    The final film for Halloween 31 For 31 this year. Hopefully everyone's enjoyed this season. Now I can relax. A link to a review here - http://mubi.com/lists/halloween-31-for-31-2013-world-championship-edition

  • HenriqueA's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    Both a step foreward (it seemed broader, bloodier and had way more sense of humour, plus zombies) and backwards (only four shorts, two of which are really subpar and the TAPE segment from this one was really really bad and unimaginative). "Safe Heaven" and "A Ride in the Park" were great rides and the film altogether still entertains but all in all inferior to the first one.

  • Marcus Killerby's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    The first one made absolutely no sense and was just boring but had two or so good segments... kinda. This one is fucking drivel. I give it two stars only for Gareth Evans' segment which starts off good, becomes incredible but unfortunately just does not know when to quit. Every good segment of the VHS series would work better a) without the found footage style and b) with more time to flesh out its ideas...

  • MODERNGRUMBLE's rating of the film V/H/S/2

    2 stars for the Safe Haven segment which is really a great piece of horror albeit a bit of overkill. The rest of this is terrible.
