Spoilery New Clip From Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto's SAFE HAVEN Segment From V/H/S/2
Over here in Australia we're going to have to wait a little longer for Roadshow to release V/H/S/2 but across the Pacific in the US audiences are able to watch it right now dammit! Directed by Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Edúardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjahjanto, Gareth Huw Evans and Jason Eisener, from all reports (including our own review right here) V/H/S/2 is a bigger, scarier, more badass sequel.

Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static--white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

From the demented minds that brought you last year's V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes--a second generation with no loss of quality.

Thanks to Magnet Releasing we have a clip from the film to show you, from the much raved about segment Safe Haven, directed by The Raid's Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto (who was responsible for the most screwed up segment in The ABCs of Death, "L is for Libido"). 

A word of warning: from everything I've read about the film, what you see in the clip seems to constitute pretty heavy spoilers. I wasn't that worried about being spoiled but felt I'd already seen too much just 10 seconds into the clip. So if you want to be unspoiled and experience the madness as it unfolds, look away now. 

And if you live in the States and you haven't watched the movie yet, do that right now!

Man, I can't wait to see this.

Juan Andrés ValenciaJune 11, 2013 8:35 PM

It was avaiable on Demand a few days ago. You can check if it's still avaiable.

My girlfriend and I are huge horror aficionados and thought V/H/S was really cool, really different, and really scary. Because of this and especially after the Red Band trailer, we pounced at the chance and rented V/H/S 2 on On Demand the other day. Utter and total disappointment. It was an extreme let down. The sequel lacked everything the first one had. Originality, uniqueness, creativity, and scares. This film felt rushed so it could cash in on the name, like Saw. The stories are weak and thoughtless, most to the point of silliness which voided of all elements of fear and dread. We found ourselves laughing many times at the dumbness of it all. Some, like the cult episode (previewed above) had a ton of potential but were squandered by being too cliche and not very well thought out in the story department, or in its actual execution. Don't rent it for $9.99, wait for it on Netflix streaming, it can't be long now.

Only in America.

This segment was the only passable one in the lot, but that's not really saying much seeing as how the collective really was quite terrible. Was hoping for a step up from my disappointment in the first film, but this was a huge boring step down. But if annoying hipsters in bad makeup trying vainly to be scary with limited plots and not much thought put into it is your thing, have at it.

I think Eisener's piece was every bit as strong as Safe Haven.

I liked the concept of aliens invading a sleepover, but the characters were far too annoying and the "aliens" looked like guys dressed up in bad rubber costumes. I do respect your opinion Todd, but this series is two and out with me.

The entire "VHS" thing is troublesome as well. Let alone the fact it's not shot on VHS, why not just call it "POV" and bypass all the video camera trappings?

Todd BrownJune 12, 2013 1:14 PM

Won't argue with you on the VHS thing at all.

Christopher WebsterJune 12, 2013 4:27 PM

Not sure if it was in Canada.
