An official teaser trailer drops hints of what fans of the found footage franchise can expect.

Nightmares Ahead in V/H/S/85
In V/H/S/85, an ominous mixtape blends never-before-seen snuff footage with nightmarish newscasts and disturbing home videos to create a surreal, analog mashup of the forgotten 80s. Back when this installment was announced, Bruckner stated “The V/H/S series is a continued love letter to found footage nastiness and the mad variety of anthology horror. Having helmed a segment of the OG film, I’m beyond excited to be back behind the camera in V/H/S/85, alongside some of my very favorite voices in the genre.”
In the fall of 2022, V/H/S/99 premiered on Shudder on October 20th. The series of films spent a moment in the 90s with that title and with V/H/S/94, but now they move into the 1980s, which has its unique take on horror. Slashers and iconic killers flooded the big screen during that decade in horror history, it’ll be exciting to see what arrives in V/H/S/85. The franchise returns with this new film on October 6th on Shudder.
Producers of V/H/S/85 include Josh Goldbloom for Cinepocalypse, Brad Miska for Bloody Disgusting, Bruckner (V/H/S, The Night House, Hellraiser), filmmaking collective Radio Silence (Chad Villella, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, & Tyler Gillett; Ready or Not, Scream), and James Harris (47 Meters Down). V/H/S/85 is executive produced by Michael Schreiber & Adam Boorstin for Studio71.
