October Horror Movie Challenge - V/H/S/94 (2021)


Like the previous films in the series, this film is a series of found footage shorts that have a framed story. This time the frame is a police raid on a cult hideout. Storm Drain deals with a humanoid rat seen beneath a city. The Empty Wake involved a reanimated corpse in a wake with no guests. The Subject deals with a scientist creating cyborgs and a military raid. Finally The Terror involves a domestic terrorist group and their attempt to use vampire blood as a weapon.

I really liked this anthology. Then again, I've been a fan of this whole series. Personally, I liked the The Terror best. There's nothing like seeing a bunch of super patriotic conservative terrorists can taken out. Storm Drain is my second favorite. Ratma is a cool idea, even if its not fully fleshed out. It also takes place in Westerville, Ohio. It mentions Westerville, but I know its the one in Ohio because it mentions "our Buckeyes" and a annual pumpkin festival. The Subject is action packed and a lot of fun. The Neohuman cyborgs are horrific and have a Tetsuo, the Iron Man vibe. Finally, The Empty Wake is crazy, but has a very random ending. If you like found footage anthologies, check this one out on Shudder.
