WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS!
This movie is incredibly gory, yet it was toned down from the first film. V/H/S/2 or S-V/H/S doesn't fail to give us the gore and the scares we had from the first one. Of course each segment has its own flaws, but the scares is what really keeps the crowd coming back for more. V/H/S was about a group of misfits whom go to a house to get a rare VHS tape that someone was paying them for, but they get more than what they bargained for. What awaits them are multiple VHS tapes each more terrifying and disturbing than the last. Where V/H/S/2 picks up, we learn that one of the characters from the group of misfits from the first has gone missing. Two detectives try to go find him and see multiple VHS tapes and a butt-load of TVs set up. The first detective is the whole reason I put positive role model. Mainly because he is concerned for the other detective's health at one point of the film. Now that that's done, the first segment is called Phase 1: Clinical Trials. Clinical Trials is about a man who gets a surgery and gets a brand new eye in because the old one wasn't working. He leaves the hospital after the surgery and gets a strange look from a woman. Later he starts seeing ghosts and the woman arrives and they have sex to get the ghosts to go away. They both end up dying at the hands of the ghosts because the guy was stupid enough to interact with them. The second segment is called A Ride in the Park. This is filmed from a man whom is wearing a action pro camera. This is a zombie story where he tries to help a woman but gets infected. He runs off and is found by some other bikers who call for help, but the zombie version of the guy attacks them both and turns them both into zombies. The three then go to a little kid's birthday party where they attack the party-goers and the guy gets a call from his girlfriend. He then realizes that this wasn't him and shoots himself in the head with a shotgun. The third segment is called Safe Haven. This is a cult story where some newspaper reporters go to a cult place and eventually become involved in it. Three of them die and the other one speeds away in a car where a demon thing comes after him and says "Papa" since it came from the woman he had made pregnant. The last segment involves aliens. It is called Slumber Party Alien Abduction. Some teens have a slumber party and aliens abduct them. It is filmed from a camera on a dog and after the kids are abducted, the dog falls on a rod and slowly dies on screen. That scene is very sad. The wraparound segment ends with the missing misfit guy making his own tape and kills the other guy after the other detective becomes possessed and he kills her. The kid then gives a thumbs up and the movie ends. All in all, this is a pretty good movie. I wouldn't say it isn't suitable for kids (clearly the first one should) but it should be okay with mature 14 y/o and up. Thanks for reading and have a Happy Halloween!
