The V/H/S Franchise is Back
The horrors of the y2k era abound.
Hey Creepy Catalogers,
Halloween season brings us another bounty this weekend:
V/H/S/99 (2022). Streaming on Shudder. Last year’s V/H/S/94 was my favorite V/H/S film since the original so I have high hopes for the future of this found footage franchise. The horror anthology returns with 5 segments but no frame story this time. The segments are made by directors Maggie Levin, Johannes Roberts, Flying Lotus, Tyler MacIntyre and Vanessa & Joseph Winter. It’s already been announced that V/H/S/85 will be the next installment in the franchise.
Significant Other (2022). Streaming on Paramount+. A sci-fi mystery thriller about a couple, Ruth (Maika Monroe) and Henry (Jake Lacy), who take a romantic backpacking trip in the Pacific Northwest only to uncover something that makes them realize they aren’t alone in the woods.
Memories of Murder (2003). Streaming on Hulu. A highly-rated South Korean crime thriller co-written and directed by Bong Joon-ho about two detectives in 1986 who struggle to solve the case of a local serial rapist and murderer. Loosely based on a true story, this is one of the best thrillers ever made and definitely worth a watch while it’s included with Hulu.
If you’re looking for a family friendly movie, The Curse of Bridge Hallow (2022), staring Marlon Waynes is also new on Netflix and Spirit Halloween (2022) is available for rent on Amazon and YouTube.
