Let me start this off by saying I actually still really love the first V/H/S in spite of the weaker segments within it. I was more than thrilled to see there would be a sequel because I believe this to be a brilliant concept that marries found footage in a horror anthology. The first film while disjointed and uneven has some really great elements to it, but also didn’t really have a connecting thread as far as I can tell. It remains to be seen if V/H/S/2 will indeed fix all those issues even though the critical opinion seems to be leaning that way so far. What I can say for a fact is that the newly released red band trailer completely blew me away and I cannot stop watching it.
I cannot even really explain what in the Hell is going on in the trailer except to say that it obviously features some really rad looking aliens, crazy cult people, some massive unexplained creature that rams a moving car and any number of really crazy and ridiculous intense footage that has me chomping at the bit to feast my eyes on the finished product- the last scene of the trailer is dripping in epicness all on its own. The anthology hits VOD June 6th so the wait is winding down and select audiences will be able to catch it on the big screen July 12th.
V/H/S/2 features shorts directed by Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Eduardo Sanchez, Gareth Evans, Jason Eisner, Gregg Hale and Timo Tjahjanto. Check out the insane red band trailer below and feel free to leave your thoughts!
