A trailer has been released for the horror anthology V/H/S/85, which reaches the Shudder streaming service in two weeks
V/H/S/94 and V/H/S/99 were major successes for the Shudder streaming service in October of 2021 and ’22, respectively, so it’s no surprise that Shudder has made sure another entry in the horror anthology franchise is ready to begin streaming this Halloween season. In fact, we’re just two weeks away from the October 6th release date of V/H/S/85 – and today a full trailer for the film has arrived online! You can check it out in the embed above.
David Bruckner (Hellraiser 2022), Scott Derrickson (The Black Phone), Gigi Saul Guerrero (Bingo Hell), Natasha Kermani (Lucky), and Mike P. Nelson (the Wrong Turn reboot) are the directors this time around. The movie has the following synopsis: An ominous mixtape blends never before seen snuff footage with nightmarish newscasts and disturbing home video to create a surreal, analog mashup of the forgotten 80s.
Bruckner had this to say about the project: “The V/H/S series is a continued love letter to found footage nastiness and the mad variety of anthology horror. Having helmed a segment of the OG film, I’m beyond excited to be back behind the camera in V/H/S/85, alongside some of my very favorite voices in the genre.”
Bruckner produced V/H/S/85 alongside Josh Goldbloom of Cinepocalypse, Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting, the filmmaking collective Radio Silence (which consists of Chad Villella, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, and Tyler Gillett), and James Harris. Studio71’s Michael Schreiber and Adam Boorstin serve as executive producers.
V/H/S/85 is the sixth V/H/S/ movie, but if you factor in the spin-offs SiREN (which was based on a segment from the first movie) and Kids vs. Aliens (based on a segment from the second V/H/S/), it’s the eighth installment in the overall franchise. Or what one might call the “V/H/S/ Cinematic Universe”.
I can’t really say I’m a fan of the overall franchise, but I have enjoyed some of the stories that have been told in it. I have seen almost all of the movies up to this point and I’m curious to see what the filmmakers have come up with for V/H/S/85, so I’ll be watching it. (And catching up on the recent ones I haven’t gotten around to yet.)
