December 31, 2013
Less is not necessarily more in this slimmed-down collection.

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

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 likely to be as popular with fans as its predecessor. It certainly earns that right.

The horror movie equivalent of a wimp who relies on steroids to lend him a fearsome appearance while his eyes still tell the truth.

Found footage is all well and good, but if it's unwatchable, it might as well have stayed lost.

Erratic perspectives and high-strung camera movements predominate, ricocheting from one gory tableau to another.

"V/H/S/2" may be hit-and-miss, but it's what midnight movies were made for.

For 30 screaming-mad minutes, V/H/S/2 achieves a kind of fever pitch of nightmare hysteria.

None of the chapters use the unifying formal conceit to any real advantage; only one, directed by Timo Tjahjanto and The Raid: Redemption's Gareth Huw Evans, is worth a rental.

A diabolically psychotic, sub-mental and completely unwatchable disaster ...

There isn't a scare to be found ...

Last year's anthology horror production "V/H/S" was a revelation mainly because it took the overly familiar found-footage genre and exploited it to the fullest extent. The sequel, "V/H/S 2," achieves a similar goal with more frightening extremes

Just imagine the kind of anthology that might yet be born should all involved be held to the evident highlights of these films so far.

what S-VHS lacks in true pyloric valve-loosening fear, it makes up for with some other three letter combos: WTF and LOL.

Less turns out to be much more for S-VHS, a sequel to last year's uneven indie horror omnibus V/H/S; this one is shorter and has fewer segments, but also earns a much higher batting average.
