Horror Anthology V/H/S/85 To Release on DVD and Blu-Ray in UK





V/H/S/ 85 Bluray

We travel back to the haunted era of shoulder pads, perms and scream queens with V/H/S 85, the ‘best entry yet’ (Flickering Myth) in the seminal V/H/S horror franchise. In the sixth instalment of the brilliantly bloody Shudder Original series, we turn the clock back to the 1980s for a retro rampage of old-school horror chills and thrills.

Promising another helping of found footage fear V/H/S 85 arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on 4th March 2024, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Dust off your leg warmers and rewind to the year 1985 for five uniquely twisted tales directed by David Bruckner (The Ritual, V/H/S), Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange, The Black Phone), Gigi Saul Guerrero (El Gigante), Natasha Kermani (Lucky) and Mike P. Nelson (Wrong Turn). Giving nostalgia a blood-stained makeover, this series delves deep into the dark and dangerous underbelly of the decade.

In David Bruckner’s Total Copy starring Jordan Belfi (Nefarious) and Kelli Garner (The Aviator) – the wraparound story which holds the anthology together – a narrator presents a made-for-TV documentary following a group of scientists studying an unusual slime-covered entity named Rory. What is he, and more importantly, what can he do?

In Mike P. Nelson’s No Wake, seven friends head out on the road for a fun camping trip. Ignoring signs that they should avoid the water, a group of them decide to take a boat out on the lake, but it’s not long before their leisurely boat ride turns into a nightmare as they discover the water harbours unexpected and ominous secrets…

In Gigi Saul Guerrero’s God of Death, a Mexican news report is interrupted by a catastrophic earthquake, leaving only the cameraman alive. When he’s discovered by a rescue team, they soon realise that escaping the wreckage is the least of their worries…

In Natasha Kermani’s TKNOGD, we meet a performance artist convinced that the world has replaced God with the “God of Technology.” In her quest to awaken this deity using virtual reality, she unexpectedly is confronted by a lethal creature from the unknown.

In Mike P. Nelson’s Ambrosia, a family hosting a party for their teenage daughter, Ruth, find out they’re celebrating something far more sinister than a birthday. With the police closing in, it’s not long before the night turns into an all-guns-blazing bloodbath.

In the final segment Scott Derrickson’s Dreamkill, starring Freddy Rodríguez (Planet Terror), Dani Deetté (Ozark, The Winter Soldier) and James Ransone (It: Chapter 2), a series of a series of brutal taped crimes lead the police to a mind-shattering conclusion.

Get ready to rewind your reality and fast-forward into frights with V/H/S 85, a gory, gruesome collection of sinister stories just calling to be devoured by horror hounds.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
