"The proof of a rule lies in the expections to it." I can't recall where I heard this axiom of common wisdom, but it sprang straight to mind after I watched this movie...

The rule: "Sequels are worse than their predecessors"
The exception: This movie.

Far from being a bad rehash of the old classic comics, as was the first movie, wherein The Thing overacted beyond credibility, in this offering from the Comic Conversions gods all the characters were true to form, believable, and with the small exception of Mr Fantastic's impromptu dance routine, I found myself really quite enjoying it. With plenty of action, a storyline that was both easy to follow, but not immediately predictable, and some smooth and slick special effects.

With the surprise appearance of an old 'friend', as well as the introduction of 2 new empowered characters, there was certainly enough turbulence to keep things stirred up and interesting for the viewers... and not one, but two really nice emotive ending-elements to satisfy the feminine audience.

Overall, a very pleasant surprise, and excepting the Spiderman movies, probably my favourite comic-conversion in the last 5 years. If you liked the comics, you'll at least enjoy this movie... and don't let the first one put you off at all...

Product reviews for listing 4960: V/H/S/ 2
Directed by Simon Barrett

Product image for V/H/S/ 2V/H/S/2 is a 2013 American anthology horror film featuring a series of found-footage shorts.

In V/H/S 2, the second film in the VHS franchise, a pair of private investigators break into the home of a missing college student, uncovering a collection of mysterious videotapes that reveal four horrifying films, trafficked by an underground tape sharing community, which lead them toward a shocking resolution to their case. 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.
