S-VHS, SEQUEL TO VHS, HAS A SPOOKY TRAILER
You don't like it?! I think it's sweet. S-VHS really WAS the sequel to VHS. I think it allows them to deliver a better-looking film while keeping the conceit. No one questions it because next to no one ever got their hands on the format.
Oh it makes sense and I guess I give them credit for sticking to their guns in regard to the gimmick, but it's not like they didn't play fast and loose with the whole conceit in the first film so it almost feels disingenuous and stilted to stick so hard to it in such a way that's going to make a lot of people say "...what?" Hell I BARELY remember S-VHS as a thing so there's no doubt that a lot of people won't know what it is at all.
But I kind of actively hate the first one so I'm probably projecting a lot of bias.
I feel like this title should appeal to me, but it doesn't. S-VHS never really caught on (mini DV was what S-VHS wanted to be), and the whole "VHS" angle didn't even make sense in the first one with it's webcam footage and often times digital aesthetic.
"Camera Phone" isn't a good title, but it makes more sense as a concept. If they wanted to go back and make a true VHS movie I'd support that, but if they're not going to be using footage from VHS camcorders, they should ditch the name.
