October 13, 2021 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

V/H/S/94 is a major success for Shudder, scoring the most-watched movie premiere in the streaming service’s history. Shudder announced on Wednesday that the latest entry in the found footage anthology franchise had more members watching its debut in its opening weekend than any prior movie premiere on the service.

The film is an original reboot of the franchise that kicked off with the 2012 V/H/S, and was followed up with 2013’s V/H/S/2 and 2014’s V/H/S: Viral. The new entry is the first in the series to be released as a Shudder Original Film and has been a hit with critics (with a 96% aggregate score on Rotten Tomatoes).

“V/H/S had been one of the most fun and influential horror franchises of the 2010s, providing a showcase for a new generation of filmmakers like David Bruckner (The Night House), Radio Silence (Ready Or Not) and Ti West (The House of the Devil),” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler in a statement “When producers Josh Goldblum and Brad Miska told us what they had in mind for V/H/S/94, we knew we had to commission it as a Shudder Original production, and their amazing lineup of directors delivered something truly special. Our members have embraced the film with record-setting viewership numbers, and critics are calling it one of the best horror movies of the year.”

The film is described as follows:

In V/H/S/94, after the discovery of a mysterious VHS tape, 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.
