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.

Terrifyingly terrific stuff.

Slicker than the original without the sudden lurches in quality, this second shaky-cam horror anthology still has a standout sequence by which all the others must be judged.

An amusing and crowd pleasing selection of found footage from a group of up and coming genre directors with one deeply disturbing stand out section from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto.

This is a showcase for ideas about new ways to approach the genre. In that regard, it is both entertaining and inventive.

There are some dull stretches here, but also some grisly instant hits: nasty, deplorable, vulgar and sometimes brilliant.

Someone please give Gareth Evans lots of money to make amazing, violent, creative horror films.

The final product is a lo-fi, handheld hellraiser with a varying success rate but with more ballsy gusto than most mainstream horrors.

There's only so much shakycam and shrieking a person can stomach in one go.

Agreeable, but the tape's been slightly chewed since compilation #1.

The first film may have been better, and was certainly more original, but VHS is a patchy, outmoded format that can always accommodate second-generation materials.

Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sánchez's A Ride in the Park puts a thoroughly innovative spin on the zombie genre and immediately establishes itself as a highlight within the entire series.

The four shorts this time share a unifying structure: they start calmly enough and then build to frenzied -- and usually very bloody -- heights.

[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.

After a lackluster start, V/H/S/2 shifts into a higher gear -- and vastly improves over its 2012 predecessor.

V/H/S/ 2 is raw and rough-edged and rude. It is also, for the hardcore horror fan, a total blast.

V/H/S/2 is by no means a perfect movie; unlike its first installment, however, its hits far outweighs its misses.

V/H/S 2 is a whole lot of fun. We can imagine fans of midnight movies shrieking with delight at some of the sections...

V/H/S/2 is likely to be as popular with fans as its predecessor. It certainly earns that right.

VHS 2 is an improvement on its predecessor in just about every way possible - though, it still suffers as an uneven mix of parts (with varying quality).
