Just a couple of days ago we were talking on the air about how Blackberry finally flipped the switch and ceased operations altogether (they stopped making products in 2016). It led to a discussion of people still utilizing outdated technology. We took a call from a lady who still has and watches regularly, over 300 videotapes on her VCR. WOW. I thought of her this morning when I came across this trailer for Netflix’s upcoming “Archive 81” horror series.
Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix: “Archive 81 follows archivist Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie), who takes a job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994. Reconstructing the work of a documentary filmmaker named Melody Pendras (Dina Shihabi), he is drawn into her investigation of a dangerous cult at the Visser apartment building. As the season unfolds across these two timelines, Dan slowly finds himself obsessed with uncovering what happened to Melody. When the two characters form a mysterious connection, Dan becomes convinced he can save her from the terrifying end she met 25 years ago.”
“Archive 81” comes to Netflix a week from tomorrow (January 14).
