Trivia

When Larry and Ayesha break into the dorm of Kyle, as Larry is searching the dorm, Ayesha pushes play on Kyle's laptop. When she pushes play, the three second footage shown is "Tape 56/frame narrative" from V/H/S. Therefore, footage of the "Tape 56/frame narrative" is shown in "Tape 49/frame/narrative." See more »

Goofs

In the segment 'Safe Haven', when the lone survivor is trying to escape the area, he smashes the car window to get inside the vehicle. A few seconds later, when the demon beast attacks the vehicle, bits of glass shatter across the screen coming from the already missing window. See more »

An Improvement Over the First
11 July 2013 | by buchhol2See all my reviews

V/H/S 2 manages to fix the faults of the first. It's shorter and takes the grungy, exploitative snuff film tone of V/H/S and adds more excitement and humor. The quality of the shorts this time around are much more consistent, but they are still a mixed bag. The first short "Phase I: Clinical Trials" is average at best, but it mixed in a bit of humor which I liked. "A Ride in the Park" was fantastic and incredibly unique in it's use of the first person POV. It was my favorite of the four segments. "Safe Haven" is a close second with countless WTF moments. I would have loved a feature length version of this one. The weakest entry was the last, "Slumber Party Alien Abduction". It ineffectively used loud noises and bright lights to generate scares and it just didn't work for me. The wrap around story "Tape 49" was good, but I liked the ambiguity of the first films "Tape 56" better. V/H/S 2 added fun to the series and I hope these films continue.
