V/H/S/85 and V/H/S/94 Unboxing

Despite never reaching the popularity of modern horror franchises like Saw or The Conjuring, the V/H/S franchise is showing no signs of slowing down its ouput. Since launching in 2012, the series now consists of six anthology films, two spin-off films, and one miniseries, with more expected to come. The films are packed with horrifying found-footage short stories, packed with grisly gore and savage scares. Two of the recent, and indeed best, entries – 2023’s V/H/S/85 and 2021’s V/H/S/94 – are now available on Digital, DVD, and Blu-ray from Shudder and Acorn Media.

In V/H/S/85, five chilling tales emerge: scientists observe an unusual boy fixated on his TV, kids embark on a lake skiing adventure, a TV crew fights to survive a natural disaster, the early days of VR awaken something terrifying, and a deadly dream is captured on tape. This is a truly nightmarish mashup of the forgotten ’80s.

V/H/S/94 sees the discovery of a mysterious VHS tape revealing further horrors; 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.
