YMMV / V/H/S/2

  • Fridge Brilliance: The title of Tape 49 seems meaningless until you realize that the wraparound from the previous film was titled Tape 56. The events of Tape 56 are briefly referenced, suggesting that the tape order isn't chronological, but a countdown.
  • Narm: In "Safe Haven" a character runs through the compound halls through a room of undead schoolkids into the hallway, and as his camera spins around we see more undead cultists in the hall and catch a good long glimpse of... a couple having loud doggy-style sex in a completely bloodsoaked room.
    • The line "I'm pregnant, and you're the father!" is delievered so matter-of-factly after a conversation that naturally implies it that it sounds more like a parody of a soap opera instead of natural character dialog.
    • Not to mention "Papa."
  • Nightmare Fuel: Yes.
    • Namely, the Greys from Slumber Party Alien Abduction. They resemble their namestake and also are more interested in abducting people for medical purposes rather than killing them. HOWEVER, they're taller, they sound like demons, and one look at their faces is enough to tell you that they do NOT mean well. Another key difference from most interpretations is that they terrify their subjects before taking them, making them look like sadists along the way.
      • The moment at the end where Gary is lifted into the alien ship, grabbing onto his dog, Tank is horrifically realistic. Gary's yells and screams don't help in the matter.
  • Shocking Swerve: "Safe Haven" has no supernatural elements at all, and the horror comes from the suicide cult ...until a corpse crawls across the ceiling and a dude explodes.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: It received a considerably better reception than the original film.
    • Having characters whom are flawed yet likable certainly helped.
  • Special Effects Failure: The birthing effects and the final appearance of the demon at the end of "Safe Haven" are a bit dodgy.
  • Tear Jerker: The very last scene of Slumber Party Alien Abduction, which lingers on an injured or dying Tank after he takes a two-story fall. Anyone who loves dogs will probably have a hard time watching it.
    • Similarly, the ending of "A Ride in the Park" - the cyclist accidentally butt-dials his girlfriend, whose voice reminds him of who he used to be long enough to commit suicide so he won't harm anyone else.
