V/H/S/2 Synopsis

Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.

While V/H/S veterans Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett return with new tales of monsters and mayhem, they are joined by an enticing slate of noteworthy filmmakers, including the aforementioned Evans, Hobo With a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, ABCs of Death contributor Timo Tjahjanto, and Blair Witch Project's helmer Eduardo Sanchez.

In keeping with the design from the first film’s poster, this new one-sheet for the upcoming horror anthology sequel V/H/S/2 sticks to focusing on a skullish design for some reason, and it isn’t quite as effective as the first. Perhaps that’s because huge stacks of VHS tapes are vaguely ominous and super-bright shades of red are blinding.

Like V/H/S, this short is by far the weakest, focusing on some vile crooks who break into a house where they discover a stack of strange VHS tapes. However, V/H/S/2's other shorts are generally, stronger, smarter and more ambition than those we saw the first time around with a mix of body horror, science fiction, well-teased tension, and of course lots of gore.
