20 Best Found Footage Horror Films

5. V/H/S/2 (2013)

V/H/S/2 is a complete improvement on its predecessor.  Still an anthology film, the wrap-around narrative is just that much scarier than in V/H/S. Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house in search of clues. What they find is a pile of video cassettes containing some truly disturbing content. It is then that the investigators begin to suspect that there’s something darker at play…

The stories in


are higher in quality than the first, offering us more scares and even a little bit of comedy. That the surrounding narrative is more fleshed out just adds to the overall creepiness and hints at a mythology behind the


franchise. All that’s left now is to see if any subsequent sequels can continue on an upward trend, or if they’ll end up as obsolete as their namesake.
