Looks quite intense.

It looks awesome. Definitely looks higher quality than the first, but that's not a bad thing whatsoever.

The two indy darling fuckheads’ segments really bogged the first one down. I’m a heavy duty House Of The Devil guy (really loved that insane payoff and the mother make-up almost reached Zelda-like creepiness. Almost. Then again even that still could’ve been trimmed to a more efficient 75 minutes.)

But seriously fuck West’s segment in V/H/S. It had no business being tacked on and didn’t fit at all with the other stories. 25 boring ponderous ass bullshit minutes for that little jolt? Somebody skipped Anthology Horror 101.

As for the video chat segment, it was slightly more intense than your average Goosebumps episode and it wouldn’t have been worthy of even a network anthology like Night Visions. But at least it had tits-a-flashing so there’s that.

Subtract those two stumbles and you have a solid three main segment 90-minute movie. I don’t know that it would’ve quelled the annoying misogyny whines. And what whines they were; apparently you can’t have two-dimensional meathead frat boys, female monsters or ghosts or a former final girl returning to the scene of the crime using her annoying friends as bait or “WAH! WAH! MISOGYNY!” I just don’t get it.

Take Tuesday the 17th for instance. Why is the former final girl leading her new douchebag friends to slaughter as bait automatically considered her just being a manipulative conniving cunt instead of just a good old whackjob who became obsessed with cornering this absurdly supernatural killer?

The whine works much better if it is about how these characters are almost all obnoxious grating pricks as they are in most things that come out nowadays. Come on though; it’s a fucking anthology, where’s all the time for this character development going to come from? Plus that was kind of the whole point in the Lily segment. What’s the alternative? Present a story where some LARPers find Lily deep in the woods in some cave and she lays waste to the poor geeks?

Looking into the sequel and the names behind it, it looks like it might deliver on 3 out of 5 segments but be similarly bogged down by the very same kind of worthless indydouche stumbling blocks as the first. The format certainly seems tailor-made for the guys behind Hobo and of course BWP.

I think that was pretty much the problem with all of the stories. They were all basically 20 minutes of irritating build up, with annoying characters, for a whole 1 minute payoff. Every story was trying to be this subtle, slow burn, but when all combined, it made for one hell of an uneventful movie.

All anybody has to do is look back at something like "The Raft" from Creepshow 2 to see how easy it is to just show some idiot kids out partying and then getting methodically picked off without resorting to making any of the dipshits over the top obnoxious. Although I guess that one guy in "The Raft" was just as skeevy as any of the frat boys. But it was just a little breast suckle.

Of course, that's just too simple nowadays.

I still thought if the whole thing was 80 or 90 minutes (with a better wraparound; look how ingenious the original Creepshow wraparound comes off compared to this shit) doing just those three segments it could've been much tighter.

I hated the first one. Don't forget the trailer for the first one was also pretty intense so I'm not raising my hopes up. When will it be released?

Some first reviews for this are coming out of Sundance, and they've all been really positive so far. I can't wait, and they're saying to expect amazing things from The Raid Director, along with Jason Eisner.

Thought the first was solid and I'm getting more excited the more I hear about it.

Some of the critics I follow on Twitter who weren't huge fans of the first are saying it's a major improvement. High(ish) hopes for it now.
