    talk about striking while the pan is hot. The sequel to V/H/S is making it's way into film festivals this year! featuring segments from Gareth Evans (The Raid) & Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly) & Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die). Here's The skinny:

    and here is the official teaser

    While I really didn't like the first film (the stories were sloppy, the wrap around wasn't good at connecting anything, and nothing even appeared to be shot on VHS) and it actually ended up on my Worst of 2012 list, I still really want to check out S-VHS when made available.

    It just premeiered at Sundance last night and is getting some pretty positive reviews stating it's vastly superior to the first film, but I'll hold out my judgement until I've seen it.

    A lot of the people disappointed with the first movie are loving this one so I'm pretty excited to see it.

    I was a little disappointed with the first one but enjoyed it none the less.

    Today's found footage horror movies have me wondering: how can someone still hold a camera when monsters/demons are chasing you? I would drop the camera a run so fast all you see is a trail of shit I left behind after shitting myself. Anyway I guess this is what passes as horror today. The underlying premise and the antagonists desire and drive are supposed to shock you, not a series of endless crash cuts designed to shock you. Horror based on this cheap trick are created by those too stupid or lazy to actually write a story that scares you. A movie based entirely on visual queues to frighten are about as scary as the 80's TV show 'Small Wonder'.

    This just looks like a lot of blurry scenes and screaming. Shakey camera shit every single horror film these days looks like this. Getting tired of all these found footage movies. Who the hell runs around with a video camera while getting chased by a monster, and still manage to keep things in frame? This is shoddy film making with very little actually story, lots of filler and basic disregard to lighting and cinematography. The first one sucked hairy nuts this one has potential to suck a gang bang of hairy nuts. I'm really started to believe the horror genre is being catered to teenagers.

    I can only imagine how many more of these films are going to be made. 1st: VHS 2nd: S-VHS 3rd: VCD 4th: S-VCD 5th: DVD 6th: HD-DVD 7th: Blu-ray 8th: Super8 (prequel) 9th: .AVI (Spinoff) 10th: VHS-C (VHS remake) 11th: S-VHS-C (VHS remake) After they milk this to death there will be a spin off "Laserdisc".

    Before someone runs a marathon let me be clear I don't HATE THIS. I simply think the horror genre has become nothing more then a quick cash cow. Nobody is actually making horror films anymore only thing being produce is a PRODUCT. A product I just don't really care for and doesn't entertain me. OMFG I can't wait for Paranormal Activity 5 it's going 2B awesome!!!<----sarcasm

    I gave up after it began with approximately 2 minutes of indecipherable migraine inducing shaky cam. Honestly I cannot fathom how anybody can call this shit entertainment.

    Pretty much my feelings. I thought the idea could've made for an interesting anthology, but the first V/H/S really missed the mark and didn't click for me at all. I was actually more or less annoyed for its duration. Hopefully things work better the second time around!

    Actually addressing the topic at hand, I really don't think this needed a sequel. I'm not a fan of the "found footage" genre either. The only ones I've enjoyed are The Blair Witch Project, and REC. Both of those movies had enough of a premise as to why the events were being shot.

    V/H/S wasn't much. The wraparound segement was pathetic and annoying, just as those here have said. I did enjoy the first and last stories somewhat, and that's about it. Hopefully this one will go the same route, as in, get a one night preview on HDNet Movies so I don't have to pay to see it.

    The official red band trailer has debut. Although it is making me really excited, I think it doesn't leave enough to the imagination.

    I was not a huge fan of the first, but though it was o.k., but that trailer got my interest!

    Watched this and it blows the original fuckin' away. Normally I hate shit like this believe me I do. This is was filled with cheap scares but effective ones at that! I don't want to ruin this so do give it a view. This movie is really fucked up completely caught me off guard.

    Agreed. I happen to be one of the few weird people who loved the first film, but wow, this is how you do a sequel. Plenty of action, gore, scares and clever storylines. Even if you hated the original, you will most defiantly love the sequel.

    Just checked out the sequel. Overall I didn't think it was as good as the first but It was definitely very good and a worthy entry to what is turning out to be an entertaining series. I thought Adam Wingard's segment was the best, the rest were good as well if not a bit uneven but still very watchable. The special effects were also top notch.
