Just last month, we spoke with “Hobo with a Shotgun” director Jason Eisener, who helmed a segment in “V/H/S/2” and expressed interest in returning for another “V/H/S” movie. While Eisener isn’t attached to this particular installment, there’s clearly a love for this series among the horror community, and the fact that, after so many sequels, it’s still able to pull in high-profile directors like Derrickson and Bruckner for “V/H/S/85” is a testament to its staying power. The anthology format gives filmmakers a playground to tell short stories without having to commit themselves to the massive endeavor of an entire feature film production.
According to Shudder’s press release, “V/H/S/94” was the biggest movie premiere in the streamer’s history, setting a record for opening-weekend views, and it continues to be their top-performing title almost a year later. The upcoming “V/H/S/99” premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival and is set to bring a new anthology tale your way that “harkens back to the final punk rock analog days of VHS, while taking one giant leap forward into the hellish new millennium.”
In “V/H/S/99,” “a thirsty teenager’s home video leads to a series of horrifying revelations.” The film features five new stories from “47 Meters Down” and “Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City” director Johannes Roberts along with Maggie Levin (“Into The Dark: My Valentine”), Flying Lotus (“Kuso”), Tyler MacIntyre (“Tragedy Girls”), and Joseph & Vanessa Winter (“Deadstream”).
“V/H/S/99” premieres on Shudder on Thursday, October 20, 2022.
