This sequel had a few creative ideas, but the sub-plot with the detectives looking for the kid while one of them plays the VHS tapes kind of caught me off-guard near the end.

For the segments, well...

Phase 1 - Clinical Trials - Really good novel idea! A man looking at ghosts through a camera implanted on his new eye along with some pretty decent jump-scares. Even though it was a little nasty, I guess the short worked for this anthology.

A Ride In The Park - Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale's short is the highlight of this movie. What's not to like when you see footage being recorded from the protagonist who turns into a zombie about 2 minutes into the segment as he strolls with the other zombies?

Safe Haven - Gareth Evans, after doing his action thriller movie "The Raid", brings a lot of tension and scares to this segment. What made it really frightening in my opinion was the build up of suspense when the Indonesian cult begins to go insane and the amount of gore during the most terrifying scenes, such as the Demon-Child emerging from the female character and insanity of the characters that makes this short so cringe-worthy and hard to watch for the faint-hearted.

Slumber Party Alien Abduction - The aliens looked really, really silly in this last segment. Sure, it had potential to be really compelling in a way of what a bizarre alien encounter would be like from one group's perspective. I can give this a pass for the amount of efforts the writers put in to making this last segment as scary as possible, and the characters weren't that annoying as well. But the dog...c'mon, really?

Overall, this sequel does a lot better with the amount of creativity and scares the people in this movie put in, but still had a few subtle flaws that they could have taken care of.
