“Since its inception, the V/H/S franchise has been a showcase for emerging and established horror filmmakers to terrify audiences with innovative visions of the found footage genre. After the success of last year’s hit V/H/S/94 and the next one this year V/H/S/99We are totally excited to take the members of Shudder back to 1985 with a new collection of scares from some of the most radical horror directors working today,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler.
“The V/H/S series is an ongoing love letter to found footage evil and the wacky variety of anthology horror,” said director/producer Bruckner. “Having directed a segment of the OG movie, I am beyond excited to be behind the camera again in V/H/S/85along with some of my favorite voices in the genre.”
The first franchise collaboration between Shudder and Studio71, V/H/S/94it was the largest opening for a film in Shudder history, setting a record for the most viewers during its opening weekend.
