Shinness sex cam
Wasn't a huge fan of the first one so I'm not sure why I bothered with this (probably any combination of desperate/bored/weak-willed/stoned) and predictably, it's even worse than the original, which at least had one very strong segment ("Amateur Night") whereas here, even the stronger segments are noticeably flawed. you instantly think that this will tie into the story at large.
I guess the stuff that involves the viewing of the individual VHS tapes that make up the anthology is a bit better this time around but is still basically a collection of horror cliches (most notably from "The Ring" and "The Grudge"). there were even parts where the camera would distort and get loud that I thought: "ohhhh, notice how that only happens after a prank is done, and outrage ensues.
There's no way any of this would go down remotely close to how it does.
There's no way a crew which can afford multiple high-res "button cameras" has such shitty "real cameras." There's no way that crew would bring in lights, screens, a boom mic, and four or five cameras but leave the goddamn spare batteries in the car. And then we're really gonna have this girl confess in the middle of the shoot that she's cheated on her fiance with his best friend and she's pregnant with his child?
The bike segment is the most egregious offender of this.
We literally open the scene by establishing that this guy is a BIKING enthusiast riding his BIKE on a BIKING TRAIL and he makes a CALL on his CELL PHONE, indicating that not only does he have a cellular device, he definitively HAS SERVICE, and yet this young, athletic, annoying fuck ("Thanks, babe. See ya soon, babe.") bumbles into zombie-dom with little to no resistance.
di tutti gli episodi è quello che sfrutta meglio il POV, trasformandosi ad un tratto in una sorta di videogioco survival horror, dove ci ritroviamo a scappare da un corridoio all'altro, fino all'agoniata uscita.
There are still some more than decent makeup effects and CGI, especially given the budget.But for me, when you already have no characters and no story, you'd better at least give me semi-competent nobodies to root for or against, or otherwise acknowledge what you're lacking.Frustrating, cheesy, and oddly deliberate despite its insistence on totally feigned naturalism, V/H/S/2 loses the dark and gritty nature of the original and all semblance of believability, even within its own universe.Even the highly praised "Safe Haven" segment is rife with completely idiotic setups and character choices.Worst of all is that they can't even get the film-related stuff right in a fucking film.
