Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Less is not necessarily more in this slimmed-down collection."
‑ Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
"V/H/S/ 2 is raw and rough-edged and rude. It is also, for the hardcore horror fan, a total blast."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"One hit, one acceptable miss, one miss, and one dead-on-arrival mistake. Still a better percentage than the first movie, or most found-footage horror as a whole."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Slicker than the original without the sudden lurches in quality, this second shaky-cam horror anthology still has a standout sequence by which all the others must be judged."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"This is a showcase for ideas about new ways to approach the genre. In that regard, it is both entertaining and inventive."
‑ Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film
"There's only so much shakycam and shrieking a person can stomach in one go."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"V/H/S/2 is likely to be as popular with fans as its predecessor. It certainly earns that right."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Inconsistency aside, this franchise remains a shot in the arm for horror fans, and it would be great to see them continue to make it an annual tradition with new writers/directors sharing billing each time."
‑ Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
"An amusing and crowd pleasing selection of found footage from a group of up and coming genre directors with one deeply disturbing stand out section from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto."
‑ Katherine McLaughlin, ViewLondon
"There are some dull stretches here, but also some grisly instant hits: nasty, deplorable, vulgar and sometimes brilliant."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"After a lackluster start, V/H/S/2 shifts into a higher gear -- and vastly improves over its 2012 predecessor."
‑ Sean O'Connell, Washington Post
"Found footage is all well and good, but if it's unwatchable, it might as well have stayed lost."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"Terrifyingly terrific stuff."
‑ Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times
"If you're a fan of the original V/H/S production, this is bound to compel you, however if you left the last feeling somewhat disgruntled and underwhelmed, don't expect enough of an increase in quality to sway you this time around."
‑ Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
"Someone please give Gareth Evans lots of money to make amazing, violent, creative horror films."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
