While mainstream audiences seem pretty crazy about The Conjuring, true genre fans have a better choices for a favorite horror tale of the summer.
V/H/S 2 is well worth your time. It’s simply not as strong as the first but hardcore horror fans will appreciate the inventiveness and edgy decisions of the directors. I thought the zombie narrative was really smart, and pretty extreme in terms of gore. Moreover, I think it makes up for the somewhat less compelling alien abduction tale.
If you are into extreme anthology horror, don’t forget to watch the ABC’s of Death as well. You wont believe how incredibly odd the entries from Japan are in this film.
