V/H/S/2 Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

V/H/S/2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I am not the first reviewer to note that "found video" films are difficult to evaluate on Blu-ray, because their very nature works against such typical criteria as sharpness, detail, etc. It may be just as well in an anthology film like V/H/S/2, which was shot by multiple hands, with different equipment, using a variety of visual strategies. One obvious element in several segments (noted by at least one of the directing teams) was a desire to avoid the "shaky cam" look that has become so closely associated with the "found video" genre. In the case of "Safe Haven", the directors used button cams on the news team's shirts, which provided a steadier image. For "Phase I Clinical Trials", director Wingard studied the visual strategies of Gaspar Noé's Enter the Void, which used a similar point-of-view camera but managed to hold the image steady. In "Tape 49", note how often the characters set down their video cameras to provide the equivalent of a locked-off shot.

Although the title may say "VHS", the image on Magnolia Home Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray provides far superior resolution to anything that early format ever conveyed, even when shots have been deliberately degraded in post-production for effect. The various editors, directors and effects people (the personnel often overlap) have achieved an appropriate balance between sharpness and detail and the haphazard aesthetic that their chosen genre requires. Colors are generally dull, which has the effect of making occasional bursts of color unusually striking. Many such bursts involve video breakup, but they can also result from bright daylight scenes (as in "A Ride in the Park" or the early portions of "Slumber Party Alien Abduction"). Blacks are often "clotted", and contrast is frequently insufficient, but these phenomena appear to be inherent in the source and part of its "damaged" aesthetic, rather than a flaw in the transfer or mastering. The video image is frequently noisy (or "grainy") in low light, which is typical of "found video" productions.

With a source like V/H/S/2, compression artifacts would be almost impossible to distinguish from intentional distortion, but nothing I saw seemed out of place. The average bitrate of 21.99 Mbps did not seem inappropriate for a film that contains just as many scenes of people staring at something as it does of frantic running.


V/H/S/2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The soundtrack is where V/H/S/2 gives up all pretense of verisimilitude, because no VHS tape ever sounded this detailed or reached these kinds of volume levels without distorting or dissolving into aural mush. The 5.1 track, presented in lossless DTS-HD MA, ranges from the creepy creaks, squeaks and ghostly presence behind the hissing monitors in Kyle's house in "Tape 49" to the assault of the aliens in "Slumber Party Alien Abduction", where the attack is as much sonic as physical, almost as if the sound were intended to paralyze the victim as it comes in waves from all sides. In "Safe Haven", there are gunshots, explosions, screams, rendings of flesh, a car crash and its aftermath—and, of course, the viewer is in the middle of it all. The screams of the ghosts in "Phase I Clinical Trials" are loud, piercing and come from everywhere, and their pounding on doors is insistent. An underwater sequence is, if you'll forgive the term, immersive.

The credits list original music, but it's sparsely used. There are several original songs by Lovelock and Natur, whose styles are entirely appropriate to the film.
