Ripped from the VCR! Official Trailer for Horror Anthology ‘V/H/S/85’
“Where did you get those tapes?!” Shudder + Bloody Disgusting have revealed the main official trailer for V/H/S/85, the next film in this found footage anthology series. It’s now the fifth one – V/H/S/99 debuted just last year (also on Shudder now). As expected, V/H/S/85 (#5) is premiering at Fantastic Fest in TX this week before streaming in October. “Get ready for a found footage compilation of disembowelment, clubbing, and dismemberment, just to name a few of the grisly deaths. It’s Reaganomics and imperial disillusionment in the way that only the V/H/S movies can do them — with the fake blood hose nozzle cranked up to the soak setting.” Featuring new segments made by the horror filmmakers: Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics, Wrong Turn), Natasha Kermani (Shattered, Imitation Girl, Lucky), Gigi Saul Guerrero (Bingo Hell, Satanic Hispanics, “La Quinceañera”), Scott Derrickson (Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister, Deliver Us from Evil, Doctor Strange, The Black Phone), David Bruckner (The Ritual, The Night House, Hellraiser). The Tron-themed one looks bonkers. This whole thing looks insane! Just as expected – more VHS madness.
Here’s the main official trailer (+ poster) for the horror anthology film V/H/S/85, direct from YouTube:
Via Fantastic Fest: “A natural disaster leads to a horrifying discovery, shocking terror on a sun-soaked lake, and a performance art piece attempting to contact a new god. How do these ideas relate? Well, you’ll just have to pop V/H/S/85 in the VCR and see for yourself. The found footage franchise returns to Fantastic Fest with more eldritch beings than you can cram onto a handheld camcorder. This installment features alumni galore as we journey back to the ‘80s for teenage campout shenanigans and newscasts from the pits of indigenous retribution. Mike P. Nelson explores body horror and right-wing, gun-nut extremism in No Wake. Gigi Saul Guerrero brings the horror to a disaster recovery crew in God of Death. Natasha Kermani brings us a performance artist whose installation goes wrong in TKNOGD. And finally, Scott Derrickson returns to Fantastic Fest with a disturbing vision of videotaped murders in Dreamkill. The segments are all tied together with a spooky research study from director David Bruckner.” The film will premiere at Fantastic Fest 2023 in Austin. Shudder then debuts V/H/S/85 starting on October 6th, 2023.
