When supernatural thriller, Archive 81, was announced on Netflix it came on the heels of the highly acclaimed Midnight Mass. Archive 81 was a completely different type of horror show that was a slow burn and if you weren’t hooked by episode 2 you were likely looking for something else to watch.
Archive 81 had an interesting premise but it failed to capture a large fanbase.
Archive 81, based on the supernatural horror podcast and produced by James Wan’s Atomic Monster, was written and executive produced by Rebecca Sonnenshine, who made her debut as a showrunner on the series.
In Archive 81, when archivist Dan Turner (Athie) takes a mysterious job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994, he finds himself reconstructing the work of documentary filmmaker Melody Pendras (Shihabi) and her investigation into a dangerous cult. As Dan is drawn into Melody’s story, he becomes convinced he can save her from the terrifying end she met 25 years ago.
