V/H/S/2 Review


Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student's disappearance.

V/H/S/2 is an Indonesian-American found footage anthology horror film that was originally named S-VHS. V/H/S/2 contains less nude and sexuality scenes and more gore/blood then V/H/S which can be due to the factor that the directors are different. It contains nudity of male and female body parts, disgusting gory bloodstain scenes, extreme rated violence, suspense, numerous grisly deaths/killing/murders, scare factors, jump out of your seat frightening scenes, bad language, humor and lots of thrills.

It is the second sequel to V/H/S which has a different group of directors.
Tape 49 is directed by Simon Barrett (The Nothing Deal, Red Sands Set Tour with Noel G., The Screenwriter Diaries) and is about two investigators, Larry (Lawrence Michael Levine - Wild Canaries, Detonator, All the Light in the Sky) and his girlfriend Ayesha (Kelsy Abbott - Perfect, One Week, Barbershop) who breaks into a missing college students home, finds some VHS tapes and starts to look at them on the VCR. Ayesha eventually becomes possess and tries to kill Larry, so Larry quickly snaps her neck but she didn’t die.

Phase I Clinical Trials is directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest, A Horrible Way to Die, Pop Skull) and is about a man who need an eye transplant after his got damaged in a car accident. The doctor installed a camera in that eye that is missing and it records everything the man sees in life. The man soon began to hallucinate and sees dead people that he thinks are real and became dangerously afraid of them. He even slept one night in his bathtub and his last escape plan from these scary nightmarish people is to remove his eye with a scissors. That image remains in my head from when the man removed his eye with a straight razor. It was one of the grossest sickening scene for me. It made me squirm and wanted to throw up.

A Ride in the Park is directed by Eduardo Sanchez (Exists, Four Corners of Fear, ParaAbnormal) and Gregg Hale (Say Yes Quickly, The Upstairs Man) and is about a man who tries to help a female that was bitten by zombies and got bitten by the female and the cycle goes on where everyone who comes along the trail gets bitten when they try to help. It was really bloody disgusting when the man bit the man cheek off exposing his teeth and all and then he started to eat the man’s insides/entrails.

Safe Haven is directed by Timo Tjahjanto (Killers, Macabre, Takut: Faces of Fear) and Gareth Huw Evans (The Raid 3, The Raid 2, The Raid: Redemption) and is the most violent and gory footage because it had numerous death. Kids and adults drink poison to commit suicide, a woman’s stomach is ripped open by a demon like monster, blood is seen everywhere after a room explodes, a leader molest kids because he thinks that purifies them and so much more gory chaos that you have to see the movie.

Slumber Party Alien Abduction is directed by Jason Eisener (One Last Dive, The Teeth Beneath, Hobo with a Shotgun) and is pretty much describes by its title. It is about a few kids left at a lodge while the parents goes out for some fun. The kids decide to have some fun of their own by taping a camera to their dog and the dog videos everything they do including aliens chasing the kids.

I would recommend this movie to all horror fans. It is a must see and I will watch this movie again.
