a) Cockroach videocassette sleeves
I watched V/H/S/2 on TV and found it partially interesting while I could stay away watching it late in the evening. In the opening scene, some people enter a house where there are various video casettes around, and I began to think of the transparent cassette sleeves lying around as shed skin, and then I began to imagine that these people have entered an alien environment where there are creatures about a foot in length that are like oversized transparent cockroaches or beetle crawling around, and their innards resembled VHS video cassettes, the man slides one of the cassettes out of the creature leaving the skin with its legs inactive, and the inside of spools which are a couple of inches wide are sharp teeth that would close in on someone's fingers very easily and bite them off or begin to suck blood out of the person. These things would replace the facehugger, and would suck its victims into an alternate reality by the looks of it, perhaps loosely they were inspired by things from Cronenberg's films eXistenZ and Videodrome.
b) Uterine environment
The first story seen on a video casette in the film was about a man who had a prosthetic eye implanted and he could see the dead with this and a woman comes by who can hear the dead and most of this story takes place in the man's house. As the story becomes more disjointed, and so did the photography to the point where it seemed as if the viewer was trapped in tiny rooms with tiny doorways and it was impossible to work out what exactly was up or down. The woman gets dragged into a swimming pool to drown and at points it seemed as if the pool was upside down and perhaps one might have wanted to think about the star gate in the movie Stargate that was a pool of water on its side. While I was watching it, I began to think about a man wakes up in a strange environment where there appears to be no up or down, as if it were a zero gravity space station interior of non human design. A woman that is with him, he finds lying on a leather sofa on the ceiling and she begins to get sucked into the space between the back of the sofa and the cushions, as if it were a birth passage between thick fleshy lips. He himself is passes from one chamber to another trying to find her. The entrances from chamber to another seem impossibly small and he can see the woman behind through them and hesitates as he realises that he can get through them.Activating the cassette created holographic images in the form of demons that come to life and grab the person who has activated and thrust something down his throat.
c) The rest of the movie
The rest of the movie didn't grab my attention particularly to the point where I fell asleep during the story about the suicidal cult.
