‘V/H/S/99’ comes to Blu-ray, DVD & digital on 27 March 2023
Seminal horror franchise V/H/S returns for its fifth wicked instalment V/H/S/99 – which will have you taped to the screen. The latest incarnation brings a brand-new host of hellish found footage fear fillers – five unique tales of mayhem and terror – all linked by the year 1999.
This Shudder Original proved its horror chops, showing it’s still as popular as ever when it quickly became the streamer’s most-watched film – ever. Now, this terrifyingly thrilling feature is set to arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on 27 March 2023, courtesy of Acorn Media International.
Witness a hellish vision of 1999 as social isolation, analogue technology, and disturbing home videos fuse into a nightmare of found footage savagery that explores the dark side of 1990s nostalgia. With roots in Rock n’ Roll, Maggie Levin’s ‘Shredding’ tells the story of a dare that turns deadly… meanwhile ‘Suicide Bid’ from Johannes Roberts (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, 47 Metres Down), explores the concept of college hazing through a claustrophobic horror tale that’s sure to terrify viewers.
Renowned record producer, DJ, filmmaker and rapper Flying Lotus (Kuso) collaborates with Zoe Cooper, who takes the idea of a low-budget game show that humiliates its contestants with the promise of a reward that’s impossible to win… and in ‘The Gawkers’ – directed and penned by Tragedy Girls creators Tyler MacIntyre and Chris Lee Hill – boys just want to have fun, but at what cost?
‘To Hell And Back’ from Vanessa and Joseph Winters (Deadstream), concludes the collection and sees two videographers hired to document an occult ritual summoning who end up getting much more than they bargained for…
A throwback to the final punk rock days of VHS that takes one giant leap into the hellish new millennium, V/H/S/99 is an eerily entertaining, frightening and at times darkly humorous ride and a must for any collector’s shelf.
