Shudder has announced the return of Studio71's found footage anthology franchise V/H/S, with a fifth, all-new instalment titled V/H/S/99.
Per a Deadline exclusive, the Shudder original film will release in most territories on October 20th, and will feature genre filmmakers Maggie Levin (Into The Dark: My Valentine), Johannes Roberts (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, 47 Metres Down), Flying Lotus (Kuso), Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls), and Joseph and Vanessa Winter (Deadstream).
“V/H/S/94 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 Shudder's GM, Craig Engler. “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 yet in the series, and we can’t wait for Shudder members to see it.”
As for what V/H/S/99 might have in store, producer Josh Goldbloom teases that "The last year of the 90s was a perfect playground for us. DVDs surpassed VHS, Blair Witch took the world by storm, and Y2K fears created a sense of apocalyptic dread. Add to that 6 of the most creative genre filmmakers in the world, and we’re confident this is the biggest, baddest, and most wildly savage V/H/S yet!”
