Tribeca Film Festival Review “V/H/S/2”

Directed by: Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Eduardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjahjanto, Gareth Evans, Jason Eisener
Distributed by: Magnolia Pictures
Rated: R
Running Time: 95 mins

Score: 4 out of 5 stars

V/H/S 2 is, as was its predecessor, an anthology film comprised of horror shorts by different directors strung loosely together by a framing story. The excuse for getting the tapes together this time are investigators stumbling upon the collection on a search for a missing person. Sure. So how are the tapes?

The first one, “Clinical Trials” I thought was cause for concern. A man’s new artificial eye is doubling as a recording device for its creators’ research. Of course this being a horror film, the eye brings with it the startling additional ability to see the dead. Eventually the patient links up with an eccentric female patient who can hear the dead and panic and chaos ensue. Well made and a bit slicker for having the eye-camera being so super high-tech, “Clinical Trials” just seemed a bit predictable compared to what V/H/S delivered.

If “Clinical Trials” had me worried, the second short “A Ride in the Park” brought me right back on board. A biker mounts a camera to his helmet in order to record his ride through the park when he is unfortunately attacked by zombies. But the mounted camera records regardless. From then on, we get a hilarious look at the POV of a zombie– from the uninterrupted conversion from human to undead, to his bumbling recruitment of his small zombie posse. A bloody climax at a kids’ park birthday party had me cracking up.

“Safe Haven” continued the upward climb of these stories for the sheer number of WTF moments per minute. A film crew looks to investigate a cult leader and his flock in their compound. The Indonesian guru, ominously known as “father”, is surrounded by tons of female acolytes who eventually over power the crew in a deliriously over-the-top and hellish finale. The punchline of this short was my favorite in V/H/S 2.

It’s difficult to follow the madness of “Safe Haven” but “Slumber Party Alien Abduction” does so admirably. Eventually the most serious of the bunch, it relies on a dog-mounted video recorder (he’s the tool in a prank war), to capture a terrifying batch of aliens assaulting a kids’ party. It’s a blur of panicked teens, woods, and that poor dog having to face aliens. The sounds of the alien invasion are what really sell the terror here, but having the dog camera-man makes this one the hardest to watch both for the visual shakiness and his helplessness.

Notable in this installment is often its reliance on broad sunlight over shadows which help tip the scale towards more humor than horror on occasion, while helping to showcase the gore in all its glory. Like the previous film, the setup to our watching this collection is mostly irrelevant but the payoff contains to my mind the most gruesome shot of the film. After what we’ve been through, it’s an impressive feat and a great closer to our trip through this horror funhouse.

When it comes to anthology horror, “Creepshow” still holds my favorite chip. “V/H/S” though is easily one of my favorite horror films of 2012. It is unique and takes the POV genre to a new level. Plus, personally having grown up on VHS and 80’s horror, this film completely speaks to me. It is weird to think that my own daughter, who is only 6 months will not know what a VHS tape is. I don’t think these are terrifying but definitely get some good jumps and some “WTF” moments. If you are looking for some kick ass horror from some very talent young directors, do not miss “V/H/S”.

The film contains six different segments “Tape 56”, which also is the main arc; “Amateur Night”, “Second Honeymoon”, my favorite of them all; “Tuesday the 17th”, “The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger” and “10/31/98”. They are all tied together yet completely different. Some of them are harder to stomach than others in terms of the brutal level. Some are better than the others but overall they work well as a team to kick some major ass!

This film packs some great directoral talent including Adam Wingard (“The ABC’s of Death”, “A Horrible Way to Die”), David Bruckner (“The Signal”), Ti West (“The Innkeepers”, “The House of the Devil”), Glenn McQuaid (“I Sell the Dead”), Joe Swanberg (“The Zone”) and Radio Silence. There is so much love for the horror genre here that this film is almost guaranteed not the fail. These guys love their 80’s horror and really deliver some great unique approach to the anthology POV horror genre.

Official Premise: V/H/S is a POV, found-footage horror film from the perspective of America’s top genre filmmakers. In V/H/S, a group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house in the countryside and acquire a rare tape. Upon searching the house, the guys are confronted with a dead body, a hub of old televisions and an endless supply of cryptic footage, each video stranger and more inexplicable than the last…

Here is the thing about this film, it is not meant to look perfect. It is very low-budget and made to look like it was on VHS tape. So the 1080p looks perfect for what is expected. The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks works well with the dialogue and the jumps. There are some decent special features included here including cast and crew commentary tracks. There is also an alternate ending for “10/31/98”. There is some deleted scenes from “Tuesday the 17th” and “Amateur Night”. There are interviews with cast and crew including web cam interviews. The “Conceptual Design Gallery” for the character of Lily is worth checking out. “AXS TV: A Look at V/H/S” is a behind-the-scenes looks at the production of the segments. Lastly there are trailers included.
