Shudder’s V/H/S/94 First Clip And Story Details Revealed
The latest movie in the found footage anthology series hits Shudder in the Fall.
The panel featured directors Simon Barrett, Jennifer Reeder, Timo Tjahjanto, Chloe Okuno, and Ryan Prows, plus producers Brad Miska and Josh Goldbloom. During the discussion, the directors revealed what their episodes would be about. Barrett's entry takes place in a funeral home where a new employee must record an overnight wake, while Okuno's part focuses on a TV reporter investigating a local legend of the "rat man," who lives in a storm drain.
Prows' part is titled "Terror," and follows a militia group who get their hands on a supernatural weapon they plan to use against the government, with Tjahjanto's section focusing on a "Dr Frankenstein-like mad scientist" who is creating an experimental creature. Reeder has made the wraparound story, which centers on a SWAT team which discovers the VHS tapes that the other stories are found on.
Fans had to wait until the end of the panel to see the first V/H/S/94 clip, but you can check it out below, by skipping to the 27-minute mark. It's taken from Okuno's episode, and definitely has the creepy and oppressive hand-held atmosphere that made the previous films so effective. Check it out:
Panel host Richard Newby also revealed that, for the first time in the V/H/S series, all the parts will build towards one larger story. V/H/S/94 doesn't have a confirmed release date yet, but it will hit Shudder in the Fall--probably near Halloween.
The first V/H/S was released in 2012, and featured episodes directed by Adam Wingard (Godzilla vs Kong), David Bruckner (The Ritual), Ti West (The Innkeepers), and Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies). V/H/S/2 arrived the following year, with V/H/S: Viral released in 2014.
