Debuting later this year is the highly anticipated sequel V/H/S/99, with artist Creepy Duck Design taking to Twitter to unveil an official poster for the found-footage anthology. With the artwork featuring a hellish interpretation of a skull, longtime fans of the franchise will likely realize how the poster honors the artwork for the original film, which featured seemingly endless stacks of VHS tapes with select labels forming the shape of a skull. The upcoming sequel is a Shudder original and will be debuting on the streamer on October 20th, though V/H/S/99 is already slated to be screened at a number of film festivals before that premiere.
"Happy Friday all! I promised something special today! I'm honoured to unveil the official poster for the upcoming V/H/S/99!" the artist captioned the post unveiling the artwork.

The new film is described, "V/H/S/99 harkens back to the final punk rock analog days of VHS, while taking one giant leap forward into the hellish new millennium. In V/H/S/99, a thirsty teenager's home video leads to a series of horrifying revelations."
Filmmakers on the new sequel include Maggie Levin (Into The Dark: My Valentine), Johannes Roberts (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), Flying Lotus (Kuso), Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls), and Joseph & Vanessa Winter (Deadstream).
"V/H/S/94 set a new bar for what is already a fantastic film franchise, featuring some of the best horror anthology segments in recent memory by an incredible lineup of filmmakers," said Craig Engler, GM of Shudder. "We knew immediately that we wanted to continue the series, and what the producers have come up with in V/H/S/99 will be the biggest and best film yet in the series, and we can't wait for Shudder members to see it."
"The last year of the '90s was a perfect playground for us," said producer Josh Goldbloom. "DVDs surpassed VHS, Blair Witch took the world by storm, and Y2K fears created a sense of apocalyptic dread. Add to that six of the most creative genre filmmakers in the world, and we're confident this is the biggest, baddest, and most wildly savage V/H/S yet!"
"Fans of our franchise are going to love V/H/S/99," said executive producer Michael Schreiber. "Each new film in the series is the chance to showcase a different ensemble of talented and diverse filmmakers, and I'm extremely proud of the work that V/H/S/99's filmmakers have put in to bring their terrifying visions to life."
V/H/S/99 hits Shudder on October 20th.
