Inconsistency aside, this franchise remains a shot in the arm for horror fans, and it would be great to see them continue to make it an annual tradition with new writers/directors sharing billing each time.
If you're a fan of the original V/H/S production, this is bound to compel you, however if you left the last feeling somewhat disgruntled and underwhelmed, don't expect enough of an increase in quality to sway you this time around.
[This] sequel to the 2012 cult DVD hit waivers in its overall fright factor but slam-dunks enough horror moments (most of them inventively bloody and grotesque) to ensure a franchise arc in years to come.
