Horror fans reveling in the V/H/S franchise won’t have too long to wait now with a 2021 release date TBA for the next installment, V/H/S94. AMC Networks’ premium horror and thriller streaming platform, Shudder, has acquired worldwide rights and is on board as producer.
In V/H/S/94, after the discovery of a mysterious VHS tape, a brutish police swat team launch a high intensity raid on a remote warehouse, only to discover a sinister cult compound whose collection of pre-recorded material uncovers a nightmarish conspiracy.
The found footage horror franchise catapulted to hit status since debuting in 2012 from producers at Bloody Disgusting and The Collective. Both companies produced the anthology sequel next to Haxan Films the following year for V/H/S 2, followed by 2014’s V/H/S Viral, and two more sequel/spin-off projects.
Franchise familiars Simon Barrett (Séance) and Timo Tjahjanto (May the Devil Take You Too) are returning with their contributions next to acclaimed directors 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.
David Bruckner (Hellraiser) and Radio Silence (SCREAM) served as exec producers. Josh Goldbloom produced for Cinepocalypse Productions alongside franchise co-creator Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting, and Kurtis Harder (Spiral). Michael Schreiber for Studio71, Zak Zeman, & Tom Owen also served as executive producers, along with Michael Paszt, James Fler and Andrew T. Hunt of Raven Banner Entertainment.
V/H/S94 will release as a Shudder Original Film in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand later this year.
