Premiering at Fantastic Fest later this week is V/H/S/85, the latest in Shudder's found footage anthology franchise - but before that, IGN have exclusively blessed us with a bloody and bonkers new trailer.

On the directorial roster this time around is Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Black Phone), David Bruckner (Hellraiser, The Ritual), Gigi Saul Guerrero (Satanic Hispanics, Bingo Hell), Natasha Kermani (Lucky) and Mike P. Nelson (Wrong Turn). Obviously, half the fun of a new V/H/S installment is going in totally blind, but here's a very brief plot synopsis to tide you over:

“Unveiled through a made-for-TV documentary, five chilling tales emerge: scientists observe an unusual boy fixated on his TV, kids embark on a lake skiing adventure, a TV crew fights to survive a natural disaster, the early days of VR awaken something terrifying, and a deadly dream is captured on tape.

Produced by Shudder, Studio71, Cinepocalypse and our friends over at Bloody Disgusting, V/H/S/85 marks the sixth entry into the series that includes last year's V/H/S/99 and of course the iconic V/H/S/94 (hail Raatma!)

If you're not lucky enough to be at Fantastic Fest, you can catch V/H/S/85 on Shudder on October 6, and don't forget you can also read our exclusive interviews with all five of the V/H/S/85 directors in the new issue of FANGORIA!
