See Through a Zombie's Eyes in "V/H/S/2 (2013)"
The premise of the movie is simple. A cache of VHS video tapes (remember them) is discovered, all of which house all manner of horror and depravity, and all seen from the point of view of a hand-held video camera.
This time around is not a whole lot different. But this time around, one of the stories unfolds like this:
Mountain biker dude shirks his boyfriend duties to zip through the woods on his wheels only to encounter a throng of zombies.
Why this is awesome:
He is wearing a helmet-cam. And, of course, he gets infected. What follows is a unique perspective of what it would be like to become a zombie! There’s projectile vomiting. There’s crazy running. And there is, of course flesh eating. All from the POV of his helmet-cam.
Oh, and there’s a little girl’s birthday party.
Everything is not great in V/H/S/2. But this sequence is a must see for you lovers of the undead. Disgusting, funny and poignant.
