Agreed. Just gory for not much reason.

My favorite part of VHS 2 was the 2nd part. The one with the zombies

That was one of the coolest viewpoints I've seen in a horror movie.

It's different, which is refreshing from the same dribble of "Creepy kid/weird monster moving in the background" horror movies that keep coming out.

Just read the VHS 2 synopsis. The main narrative seems way more interesting than VHS'.

This is the second time today you have used "me" instead of "my". Are you a pirate?

VHS is ok, but...

Spoiler:

Glad this is in a relevant thread. My friends and I are of the consensus that the worst movie character ever created in any movie is Steve the Pirate from Dodgeball.

I thought Owen was the worst character in that movie and would be a good nominee for worst ever. Why did they have him and Justin Long's character?

Justin Long's character was also named Justin. And was just as relevant in that movie as the real Justin in any other movie.

i guess...but if you're making a movie about secret underground tapes, the events within those tapes should probably be...well...secret and underground.

it's just a bit lazy. there wasn't a lot of effort to have anything be cohesive in that movie - even with a series of vignettes, they should follow the same governing rules

I'll go with Mrs Torrance from The Shining. Kubrick destroyed one of the best characters King ever created...

I go with they thought it was a random motel room murder. Keep in mind the one girl was still alive and passed out in the room. If it was a "monster" they all would've died.

Not as relevant as in Zach and Miri

Okay, you caught me there, because his interaction with Zach is one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a movie.
