Editorial Reviews

From the innovative minds that brought you last year's V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his abandoned house and find a collection of mysterious VHS tapes. In viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be terrifying motives behind the student's disappearance.

(The following review may have potential spoilers, although most descriptions are as brief as possible.)

V/H/S 2 is a found-footage horror anthology. "Tape 49" is the frame story which follows two private investigators searching for a missing college student. When they arrive at the house, they find and view several VHS tapes hoping to track the young student. Instead, they find the following short movies:

"Clinical Trials Phase 1" follows a man who has received a new eye after a car accident - an eye with a built-in camera. When he gets home, he begins to hallucinate - things are misplaced, odd figures are seen, etc. This story works superbly as a jump-scare ghost story. It uses great suspense and the claustrophobic tunnel-vision to create effectively unexpected and consistent jump-scares. Some of the visuals are also eerie, and very creative. The acting of the lead was a bit off at times as his dialogue delivery felt unnatural - he didn't seem frightened.

"A Ride In The Park" follows a man as he takes a quick spin on his bike through the park. He eventually runs into an injured, vomiting woman and can see several people approaching from afar. The woman bites him, and, as he escapes, he becomes a zombie. The shooting style is great, and the unique zombie perspective also works well - it is a very creative story. This story is intense and violent, and even a bit humorous. Everything blends together well to create a highly entertaining tale. The special effects and makeup are great, and so is the acting.

"Safe Haven" follows a documentary crew investigating an Indonesian cult. The leader, referred to as "Father", is presumably involved in illegal acts, such as underage sex as he "purifies" children.

I was one of the people who found myself disappointed with the initial 'V/H/S'. I thought it had some good ideas but ultimately a lackluster presentation with only a few memorable moments. To my surprise, I found 'V/H/S/2' to be an effective and entertaining anthology. It's worth seeing for 'Safe Haven' alone but the other ones are decent enough.

The wrap-around story is the weakest aspect of the film, as it follows two private investigators looking for a missing student and finding a room full of VHS tapes that comprise the shorts. There's little payoff here and two films in we still don't know the significance of the tapes themselves or how they even got here beyond "insert vague supernatural reason". Fortunately it doesn't take too long to get to the segments.

The first short 'Phase I Clinical Trials' is about a man who receives an eye transplant and begins seeing ghosts. It's been done before and better with films like the 'The Eye' (the Hong Kong original, not the remake with Jessica Alba) but it has a few good scares. One of the issues I had with the short though is largely the fault of the anthology's 'schtick' -- that everything is recorded onto a VHS tape. The footage in this short is transmitted from the man's 'eye' to the doctors studying him, and the futuristic technology on display here clashes with the low-fi aesthetic that the rest of the film goes with.

The second short 'A Ride in the Park' is a hilarious take on the zombie genre done from the perspective of one of the undead with some surprising poignancy as well. It's the second best in the film anthology in my opinion.

The highlight of 'V/H/S/2' is undoubtedly 'Safe Haven', directed by Timo Tjahjanto.

Horror anthologies have made a triumphant return. With "V/H/S" and "The ABCs of Death" being released in 2012 and being surprisingly good, these modern takes on the horror anthology are in the same vein as "The Twilight Zone," "Creepshow," and "Tales from the Crypt." Less than a year has passed since the release of "V/H/S," an anthology revolving around the handheld perspective, and here we are getting its sequel "V/H/S/2." "V/H/S/2" won't sway those who hated the first film, but is bound to appeal to those who did.

The wrap around story, known as "Tape 49," has Larry (Lawrence Michael Levine) video taping a husband cheat on his wife before getting caught, barely escaping, and then meeting up with his partner Ayesha (Kelsy Abbot) to investigate a missing college kid. Going through the window of a broken down apartment, Larry and Ayesha find a multiple TV setup similar to the one in the first film with the same stacks of video cassette tapes lying around and the addition of a laptop computer. Naturally, Larry has Ayesha watch the tapes to try to find a lead while he investigates the house.

Stories include an eye injury leading to a bionic eye implant with a recording chip and glitches that allow the recipient to see the dead, a bike ride in the woods interrupted by zombies, a man promising that he's found a way into paradise, and the pranks of teenagers thankfully being put to rest by an alien abduction.

The eye injury story, "Phase I Clinical Trials," has an interesting concept, but a lame execution. It just feels like more could have been done with the glitching aspect and the climax in the pool is underwhelming. The zombie bike ride, "A Ride in the Park," is intriguing.
