The hotly anticipated next installment into the horror anthology franchise, VHS 94, is set to debut on the horror streaming service, Shudder.
The Shudder Original Film will be released in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand later this year.
V/H/S/94 marks the return of the found footage anthology series. It is the first entry since V/H/S: Viral arrived in 2014. The new anthology features segments from returning directors Simon Barrett (Seance) and Timo Tjahjanto (May the Devil Take You Too). Other newcomers to the series who directed segments include Jennifer Reeder (Knives & Skin), Ryan Prows (Lowlife) and Chloe Okuno (Slut). Greg Anderson of the legendary drone metal band Sunn O))) and Southern Lord records founder will compose the film’s score.
V/H/S/94 picks up after the discovery of a mysterious VHS tape. A police swat team launches a high-intensity raid on a remote warehouse, only to discover a sinister cult compound with a collection of pre-recorded material, uncovering a nightmarish conspiracy. Craig Engler, GM of Shudder, had this to say about it.
The announcement goes on to quote producer Josh Goldbloom, who shares that “we shot the film entirely during the pandemic, building sets in hotels, conference rooms and, in the spirit of the series’ punk rock roots, we even ventured underground into a sewer. Our team channeled the misery of this past year appropriately, so rest assured it’s the biggest, baddest, and most bloodthirsty batch of tapes yet.”
That’s what we like to hear. Today’s announcement also informs us that V/H/Salumni Bruckner and Radio Silence return to executive produce, and Goldbloom produces for Cinepocalypse Productions alongside franchise co-creator Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting, and Kurtis Harder (Spiral). Other executive producers include Michael Schreiber and Adam Boorstin for Studio71, Zak Zeman, & Tom Owen, along with Michael Paszt, James Fler and Andrew T. Hunt of Raven Banner Entertainment.
