V/H/S 2 (2013)

I have been caught up in the television show Jericho. In fact, I have spent a lot of time this week on a marathon with the intention of finishing the series by Veterans Day. I am amazed at the quality of that show and how realistic some of the storyline appears. I can also see why it was abruptly canceled, as much of it may provide a true vision of the Progressive desire change America and destroy the country with the Agenda 21 globalists. However, even a patriot minded individual must have some mindless entertainment, and that came in the form of 2013s V/H/S 2.

Plot/ 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.

When I saw this, I had to watch it. Now, I know, sequels often fall short of the original, but in some ways that does not happen here. Sure, it in no way maintained the atmosphere of the first one, focusing more on gore than scares. In fact, the gore may be the highlight of the film, as a lot of the technical aspects of the found-footage style flick were a bit off. The acting was uneven, the storylines in the segments varied, and more importantly, the quality between the stories ran the gambit from good to bad. Yes, there was a touch of atmosphere in the surrounding storyline that created some tension, but for the most part, this was just an entertaining mindless gore flick with some comic moments sprinkled in. In the end, if you enjoy a touch of mindless gore check this one out, if you are looking for something thought provoking, look away.
