Very Entertaining

I extol found-footage films. Especially horrors. They are a way of providing intimacy and a sense of tangibility to the scares. Chronicle and The Last Exorcism, the two best found-footage films in my opinion, are palpable pieces of entertainment. Don't tell us a story from the outside; put us in the thick of it.

Erratic perspectives and high-strung camera movements predominate, ricocheting from one gory tableau to another.

Where V/H/S feels deliberately homemade, V/H/S/2 boasts a slickness that's distracting and counterproductive.
