V/H/S 2

For horror-film fans, good anthologies are few and far between. Luckily, one of the best of that genre, V/H/S 2, is making its Houston debut at the River Oaks. A sequel, V/H/S 2 follows the formula of the hit first film, in which a group unwittingly stumbles across a collection of horrifying found footage, only to become involved with horror themselves. In this case, two young private investigators end up watching a series of supposedly cursed tapes. The menacing reality of the found-footage aspect of the shorts is especially unnerving. The shorts include one by Adam Wingard that features a man who has his eyesight restored through a cochlear-implant camera that now allows him to see ghosts…ghosts that are becoming more and more dangerous as he notices them. Even more terrifying is Eduardo Sanchez's short exploring life (death?) from a zombie's viewpoint.
