The series has showcased the work of Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, and the filmmaking collective Radio Silence. Now, they’re finally adding women directors to the mix in V/H/S/94, the fourth installment of the franchise.
With V/H/S/94, Jennifer Reeder, Chloe Okuno, Timo Tjahjanto, Ryan Prows, and Simon Barrett now join the ranks of V/H/S directors. In the new film, each add their own signature flair for the creepy to their respective segments.
Dread Central sat down with Reeder, Okuno, Prows, and Barrett to discuss gore, making a movie during the pandemic, and being a part of the iconic franchise.
