Having really enjoyed the first V/H/S, I was eager to see what they could do with a 2nd entry which I saw as part of the screamfest weekend. To be honest, if you didn't like the first one then the chances are you won't like this one either but I for one loved it. It improves over V/H/S in every way, it's got better production values, has less shaky camera work (one of most viewers main complaints about the first outing) it has better effects, more gore, more jumps and scares and is an absolute belter of a horror film.

As with the first film we are introduced by the wraparound segment, which is about 2 private investigators who are sent to look for a missing teenager. When they arrive at his house, there seems to be no one home but there are a group of TV screens and VHS video recorders surrounded by various tapes in his living room. The investigators decide to watch some of the tapes, and as with the first film, the rest of the movie is based around what disturbing things lurk on these tapes. And in between each tape we get to see the events in the teenagers house, with the investigators realising that maybe they are not alone.

We get to view 4 tapes in all, each one directed by a different horror genre director, the segments are as follows:

CLINICAL TRIALS: Directed by Adam Wingard (V/H/S, The ABC's of death): A man gets fitted with a bionic eye after a car accident and this story is told directly through his vision from this implant. As soon as he returns home, he starts to see an array of ghosts that seem to be hell bent on getting his attention. This is the weakest of the 4 stories but that doesn't mean it's bad, it's still quite creepy and nervy if feeling a little rushed. 6.

V/H/S was a very cool and original new style anthology horror collection movie with a freaky story, well directed and bloody as hell so it was only right that it deserved a sequel, V/H/S 2 has a new story, new directors and works really well, its still bloody as hell with plenty of gore to chew on, the story is utterly crazy again, with a similar set up as before, each segment is really good, they are all totally different from the original, I think maybe the original is a tad better but this is still really worth checking out for any fan of horror in general and certainly fans of the original, this is certainly one franchise that could go on forever with endless sequels, I say for now keep them coming!!! why there is no Blu-ray version I don't know its shocking! and there are no features which sucks!!

The movie consists of four "found footage" stories that are shown in a "Creep Show" fashion. The stories are not connected, other than the fact they are being watched by the same people, a pair of private investigators. The films include ghosts, aliens, cultist, and my favorite a "zombie cam." This is the first time I can think of where we get a zombie eye view of attacking humans.

The stories were fair and sometimes crude. There were also times when the footage deviated from the true found footage CAM as we witness the person with the camera. The DVD has two versions which I found confusing. One is the "rated version" and the other was the "unrated theatrical version." For some reason I believe versions released to the theater are rated...by law while those not released do nor require a rating.

The production is fun low brow horror entertainment. I did find the "eye cam" to reach a new low in irritating jerky motion. If you saw the first film, expect much of the same and a "VHS 3".

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, male nudity, nudity (Mindy Robinson, Hannah Hughes)

Okay, the first V/H/S movie wasn’t good… like, at all. It featured one really good segment out of five different horror stories – and that was at the start of the movie, which left this viewer bored for the next hour or so. It was a pretty dull, 3/10 kind of experience.

Which is why it shocks me to say that V/H/S/2 has ended up on my best of 2013 list.

Oops, I just realized I skipped ahead in telling you that these are anthology movies; meaning the main plot is usually just an excuse to string together short horror stories, each one directed by a different genre expert.

Main plot: Tape 49
Directed by Simon Barrett

Case in point, here we follow two private investigators as they get paid to break into a house and sniff about. They then stumble upon a large collection of video tapes and TVs. What are they gonna do? Watch them of course! And then we’re thrown into four segments of unexpectedly awesome horror.

This part really didn’t do much for me. At least, not until the final moments which tied everything up rather neatly. Before that point, it’s just kind of boring. And whenever these private investigators (played by Lawrence Michael Levine and Kelsy Abbott) finish watching one of the video tapes, they just sit there as if they don’t give a f*** about the bizarre s*** they’ve just witnessed. Oh well. Moving on to the good stuff!

1st segment: Phase I Clinical Trials
Directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next)

Herman (played by the director, Adam Wingard) has just had a mechanical eyeball implant. Through an awesome first-person style, we see things through the fake eye’s camera and follow him as he starts to see strange stuff around his house.
