David Bruckner, Mike P Nelson, and Natasha Kermani discuss their new anthology film and how they pulled off the 80’s look.
The V/H/S franchise has become a behemoth over the years. What started as a quaint series of shorts has become an annual tradition for horror fans. And while not every segment always hits, the ones that do leave a lasting impression. And V/H/S/85 is no different, planting itself firmly in the decade of decadence, the 80’s feels like a place this series was made for. I was fortunate enough to sit down with directors David Bruckner, Mike P. Nelson and Natasha Kermani to discuss how they got involved with the series. We go over how the stories are concocted, just how much collaboration there is between the segments, and how they get that unique look.
An ominous mixtape blends never before seen snuff footage with nightmarish newscasts and disturbing home video to create a surreal, analog mashup of the forgotten 80s.
V/H/S/85 IS STREAMING ON SHUDDER ON OCTOBER 6TH, 2023.
