100% better than the first V/H/S,

This review is from: V/h/s 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Just watched this, a few days after watching V/H/S 1 and being not overly impressed.
This film certainly had the edge.
A couple of private investigators, one man, one woman, are on the search for a missing youth.
They end up in a derelict house and, you guessed it, find a room with lots of flickering TV sets and a pile of video tapes.
No "dead" body slumped in an armchair this time, but the errant youth is identified on a laptop in this room.
The man disappears upstairs leaving his colleagu to start watching some of the films.
We then descend in to some really quite horrific sequences, with some considerable gore and threat.
Some funny bits as well. The zombies in particular.
And an alien visitation too.
Oh, and a weird, weird film featuring a far eastern cult which ends predictably in death for pretty much everyone.
The snot scene at the end that befalls the last surviving member of the film crew is memorable while a devil creature looms above him.
All in all, very good.
The ending unexpectedly so....
