Nice gore but very childish,
This review is from: V/h/s 2 [DVD] (DVD)
The first segment involves a man who has had an eye transplant and can now see dead people. The acting is awful, the script is awful – it aims for boo scares but fails due to the awful makeup of the supposed dead and introduces a woman just so she can get topless. Not the best start to an anthology.
The second segment is a cheap low budget first person view zombie moment, the sort of short film that you always seem to get at horror festivals, unoriginal and boring. Hard to believe it was the same director as The Blair Witch Project and Lovely Molly.
The third short about a cult has some very good gore moments and will please all the low budget gore fans out there but it all feels very immature and is far too silly to be entertaining.
Hard to believe it could get any worse but the next segment is about a bunch of kids playing tricks on each other when they are suddenly invaded by The Creature from the Black Lagoon, or aliens or whatever they are. Utter rubbish.
All wrapped up in some messed up story about a private detective and his partner who start to watch V/H/S tapes. The whole thing looks like it's aimed at school children but it has an eighteen certificate due to the impressive low budget gore of the third segment. Serious horror fans should stay clear.
