VHS 99 poster released ahead of October release
VHS 99 will debut on Shudder on October 20, the latest episode of the popular found footage horror anthology series. This one will feature segments like Maggie Levin (In the dark: My Valentine), Johannes Roberts (47 meters below, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), flying lotus (Kouso), Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls), and Joseph and Vanessa Winter (Dead current). This will be the fifth film in the franchise, and even with the low budgets, I don’t think anyone saw it coming. Below is the movie poster.
VHS 99 looks to build on the success of VHS 94
“V/H/S/94 has set a new bar for what is already a fantastic film franchise, featuring some of the best horror anthology segments in recent memory by an incredible lineup of filmmakers,” said Craig Engler, CEO of Shudder. “We knew immediately that we wanted to continue the series, and what the producers have come up with in V/H/S/99 will be the biggest and best film in the series to date, and we can’t wait for the members of Shudder to see him.” “The last year of the ’90s was a perfect playground for us,” said producer Josh Goldbloom. “DVDs overtook VHS, Blair Witch took the world by storm, and Y2K scares created a sense of apocalyptic dread. Add to that 6 of the world’s most creative genre filmmakers, and we’re confident this is the biggest, baddest, and wildest V/H/S to date!”
“Fans of our franchise will love V/H/S/99,” said executive producer Michael Schreiber. “Each new film in the series is an opportunity to showcase a different set of talented and diverse filmmakers, and I’m extremely proud of the work the filmmakers of V/H/S99 have put into bringing their terrifying visions to life.”
VHS 94 was, in fact, very entertaining, so I have pretty high expectations for this new one. It’s always been a fun show, and as long as the quality is there, I hope it continues. Look for more on this as we get closer to the October 20 release on Shudder.
