Studio71 US is producing a reboot of its horror anthology franchise V/H/S, alongside Cinepocalypse Productions.
V/H/S 94 is written, developed and produced by David Bruckner (The Night House, and the forthcoming Hellraiser remake). Filmmaking collective Radio Silence will also produce.
Both Bruckner and Radio Silence worked on the first successful series, V/H/S.
Among the directors who will contribute shorts to the new anthology are Simon Barrett (You’re Next, The Guest), Indonesian horror helmer Timo Tjahjanto (Netflix’s The Night Comes for Us) and newcomer Chloe Okuno (AFI short Slut). The producers are currently in talks with other filmmakers.
V/H/S 94 will be the first in the horror series to be presented in a single, fluid narrative, with each section linked up.
Brad Miska and Tom Owen, co-creators of the franchise, will produce the new edition along with Josh Goldbloom and Parinda Patel of Cinepocalypse Productions in partnership with Studio71.
Raven Banner Entertainment will handle worldwide sales and is introducing the project to buyers at the Virtual Cannes Market this week. Michael Paszt, James Fler and Andrew T. Hunt will also executive produce.
The original V/H/S premiered at Sundance in 2012 and spawned two sequels – 2013’s V/H/S 2 and V/H/S: Viral in 2014, as well as a spinoff, Siren. There is also a Snapchat Snap Originals miniseries based on the format.
