Fans of the V/H/S horror anthology film series will be excited to learn of today’s announcement from Shudder regarding the newest installment of the film and its planned accessibility to Shudder members.
The horror streaming service announced its acquisition of worldwide rights to V/H/S/94, the fourth installment in the cult-classic horror anthology franchise. The new film, billed to be a Shudder Original, will release in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand later this year.
V/H/S/94 marks the return of the infamous found-footage anthology with segments from franchise alumni Simon Barrett (Séance) and Timo Tjahjanto (May the Devil Take You Too) in addition to acclaimed directors, Jennifer Reeder (Knives & Skin), Ryan Prows (Lowlife), and Chloe Okuno, known for her notable work. Greg Anderson, of the legendary drone metal band Sunn O))) and Southern Lord records founder, will compose the film’s score.
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 V/H/S series has been known for two things: its unbeatable lineup of filmmakers and its edge-of-your-seat terrifying found-footage stories,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. “With V/H/S/94, the producers have upped their game—bigger, wilder, scarier than ever before. We can’t wait to unleash this new installment on Shudder members.”
Producer Josh Goldbloom said,
Thrilled seems like an understatement for just how stoked we all are to partner with Shudder. We shot the film entirely during the pandemic, building sets in hotels, conference rooms, and in the spirit of the series punk rock roots we even ventured underground into a sewer. Our team channeled the misery of this past year appropriately, so rest assured it’s the biggest, baddest, and most bloodthirsty batch of tapes yet.
David Bruckner (Hellraiser) and Radio Silence (SCREAM) served as executive producers. Josh Goldbloom produced the project for Cinepocalypse Productions alongside franchise co-creator Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting, and Kurtis Harder (Spiral).
Michael Schreiber for Studio71, Zak Zeman, and Tom Owen also served as executive producers, and Michael Paszt, James Fler and Andrew T. Hunt of Raven Banner Entertainment.
