V/H/S/99: new sequel in the V/H/S franchise is coming to Shudder in October

V/H/S/94 was a big hit for the Shudder streaming service when it was released last year, so it was inevitable that there was going to be another entry in the found footage V/H/S horror anthology franchise. We just didn’t expect it to arrive so soon. Shudder has announced that the latest sequel, V/H/S/99, has already been filmed and is ready to be released through their streaming service (in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand) on Thursday, October 20th!

Shudder’s press release reveals that the story segments that make up V/H/S/99 were directed by Maggie Levin (Into The Dark: My Valentine), Johannes Roberts (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), Flying Lotus (Kuso), Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls), and Joseph & Vanessa Winter (Deadstream).

V/H/S/99 harkens back to the final punk rock analog days of VHS, while taking one giant leap forward into the hellish new millennium. In V/H/S/99, a thirsty teenager’s home video leads to a series of horrifying revelations.

Shudder’s Craig Engler provided the following statement:

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. 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.”

Producer Josh Goldbloom added:

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!”

And executive producer Michael Schreiber said,

Fans of our franchise are going to love V/H/S/99. Each new film in the series is the chance to showcase a different ensemble of talented and diverse filmmakers, and I’m extremely proud of the work that V/H/S99’s filmmakers have put in to bring their terrifying visions to life.”

Goldbloom produced V/H/S/99 for Cinepocalypse. The film was also produced by Brad Miska for Bloody Disgusting, David Bruckner, filmmaking collective Radio Silence, and James Harris. It was executive produced by Schreiber and Adam Boorstin for Studio71.

The first V/H/S was released in 2012 and was followed by V/H/S/2 in 2013, V/H/S: Viral in 2014, and V/H/S/94 in 2021. Are you a fan of this franchise, and are you looking forward to V/H/S/99? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
