Based on the found footage podcast of the same name, Archive 81 has dropped an official trailer teasing a terrifying mystery…
In the horror series, “when archivist Dan Turner takes a mysterious job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994, he finds himself reconstructing the work of documentary filmmaker Melody Pendras and her investigation into a dangerous cult. As Dan is drawn into Melody’s story, he becomes convinced he can save her from the terrifying end she met 25 years ago.”
Archive 81 stars Mamoudou Athie (Underwater) as Dan and Dina Shihabi (Altered Carbon) as Melody. The cast also includes Martin Donovan (Big Little Lies), Matt McGorry (How To Get Away With Murder), Julia Chan (Katy Keene), Evan Jonigkeit (The Night House), and Ariana Neal (Hidden Figures). Rebecca Thomas (Stranger Things) directed half the debut season, which was executive produced by James Wan (The Conjuring) and co-produced by Marc Sollinger and Daniel Powell, who created the original podcast.
