Like V/H/S, the first anthology film in this series, V/H/S/2 isn't all great. But in this case, the strong segments outweigh the weak ones, and the overall result is a disturbing and legitimately frightening set of found-footage shorts. Special attention is due to A Ride in the Park, which documents a zombie outbreak from the perspective of a camera on a cyclist's helmet, and Safe Haven, an incredibly disturbing look into an Indonesian cult. The V/H/S series knows how to use found footage to its advantage, not wasting time on shaky-cam tricks so much as assaulting the audience with truly in-your-face horror.
