V/H/S 2 (2103)

Country:  USA

Director: Simon Barrett, Jason Eisener,Gareth Evans, Gregg Hale, Eduardo Sanchez, Timo Tjahjanto, Adam Wingard

Main Stars: Lawrence Michael Levine, Kelsy Abbott, L.C. Holt, Simon Barrett, Mindy Robinson, Adam Wingard, Casey Adams, Roxanne Benjamin, Samantha Gracie, Rylan Logan

Storyline: Two people come across a box of VHS tapes when they were investigating a missing student. The film is a collection of the watched tapes.

Review (Spoils): This time in the series, we have two people who are videotaping their undercover investigation of a missing student. During the search, they comes across a box of VHS tapes which they start to watch. While going through the series of the tapes (4 short tales of horror) strange things start to happen to them also. Spoiler alert about to happen!

The first tape viewed is called “Phase 1 Clinic Trials” this one of the weaker tales which focuses around the super natural and some jumping parts of a fat naked man and a little girl appearing and disappearing and haunting a man. The graphic are actual good but when it comes to haunting it is the same ol’ story. We have a quick topless shot in this one.

The second tape “A Ride in the Park” is a more interesting one as it involves zombies and a biker. A zombie bites the biker and then we start to see through the video eyes of a zombie attacking. Lots of blood and gore and a fun new take of a zombie tale.

The third and more fun tape of them, “Safe Haven” is a wild gorefest of a cult that is being documented and all Hell breaks loose…literally. Gore galore, I could rate this film alone on this one! The gore blew my mind and I could not stop ginning… bring on the devil horns and blood.

The main last tape called “Slumber Party Alien Abduction” is a weaker one I find, as it was too shaky to know really, what was happening. It had a Stranger Things feel but at the same time, it was all too fast and confusing.

The ending is the conclusion of the two watching the tapes and slowly being haunted and tormented. More of side note of the whole film really.

Rating: Once again, this series blew me away and kept me entertained. The film was fun and was actually damn gory. The gunshots to the head was over the top in a few of the short stories that helped me easy rate this film for a few beers higher. I can actually say even with the odd weaker tale the good ones were well worth the whole watch! Check out this series if you are a gorehound!

7/10 Beers! (almost a 8)

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011)

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011)

Country:  Canada

Director: Jason Eisener

Main Stars: Rutger Hauer, Pasha Ebrahimi, Robb Wells, Brian Downey, Gregory Smith, Nick Bateman, Molly Dunsworth, Jeremy Akerman

Storyline:  In a world of violent crimes including the police a homeless man takes a shotgun and brings the world back to a better place.

MV5BMTcxMDkxNTMwNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzc5MjUzNA@@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils): A homeless man (Rutger Hauer) is tired of seeing the streets being over taken with crime, mostly from the powers of man named Drake (Brian Downey). He steps in to defend a prostitute named Abby (Molly Dunsworth) and takes what money he has, buys a shotgun and starts to clean up the streets.

This film is nothing but over the top gore, violence and a small script of a hob with a shotgun who wants to bring the power of the people back. Right from the get go I knew I was into some shady acting and cheap plot once I saw Ricky (Robb Wells) from Trailer Park Boys in the first 5 min and to be honest I was entertained like I thought I would be.  We have some great Canadian talent appearing off and on in this film including even an appearance from George Stroumboulopoulos (nice skate death).

We have everything from one liners, shotgun shots, blown guts, burning children, topless women beating people with baseball bats, lots of heads rolling, Drug dealers, pimps, Santa Clause pedophiles, prime low dollar acting, cheesy music, the beautiful Molly Dunsworth, violent fun and over the top red blood splashing. If you like blood this is the film is a god damn ocean of it.

Rating: This film is over the top and very entertaining from start to finish. There was not much in this film where I was bored even though the plot was weak and the acting was pared. But I think that’s what made this film so much fun. This film has some of the best one liners, my personal favorite was “First I need to wash this guy’s ass off my face”. This is a pure drinking bloody gory senseless horror film! Drink up with some classic Canadian horror!
