Archive 81 is Netflix’s new American horror drama project. With the backing of a dynamic Rebecca duo, the show’s spicy plot is brought to life by Rebecca Sonnenshine as the writer and Rebecca Thomas as the director. It will finally be out on January 14 2022 and fans are super excited about it!
The mystery web series shares the story of a filmmaker, Melody Pendras and an archivist Dan Turner. Dan lands his dream job, but the role comes with risks that could endanger his life. He is tasked with restoring a collection of tapes from 1994 that was filmed by Melody.
The tapes contain secret recordings of a dangerous cult. Dan gets intrigued by Melody’s story as he terrifyingly strives to numb himself to the consequence of her investigation that happened 25 years ago.
Watch the teaser trailer that dropped on YouTube two weeks ago as you wait to binge on the series. It only contains eight episodes thus, making it an easy watch on an indoor weekend.
What’s The Deal With Archive 81?
It’s not just because the upcoming Netflix series is an awesome blend of old horror and mystery but also because it is a replication of a podcast series made by Daniel Powell and Marc Sollinger, released in April 2019.
Fans of the three seasons podcast series are extremely ecstatic to watch the live-action of the audio content. The visual medium to the audio version will make the experience more exciting.
