Horror 365, Movie(s) 143: Found Footage

Found footage is surprisingly polarizing. Most of the horror nerds I know either laud it as one of the greatest cinematic developments to come along in the 20th century or condemn it as stupid and gimmicky. Others come down just as decidedly on specific films, The Blair Witch Project possibly being the best example. Everyone I know who has seen it either loved it (which I don’t get) or hated it (my people–hugs, kisses).

But I’m not here to rant about The Blair Witch Project and its countless shortcomings. Instead, I thought I’d put together a list of 50 Fairly Forgotten Found Footage Flicks. How’s that for alliteration? These are films that flew under the radar and haven’t been talked about much (admittedly for good reason in some cases).

  8. Dark Mountain
  9. Delivery: The Beast Within
  10. Devil’s Pass (aka The Dyatlov Pass Incident)
  11. Devil’s Doorway, The
  12. Digging Up The Marrow

  45. Sacrament, The
  46. Scare Campaign

  50. YellowBrickRoad

I’m giving no indications here about quality one way or the other although I have seen all of these and they are all on The Neverending Move List if you have an unyielding and irresolute need to see what I thought. I’m always on the lookout for more along these lines as well, so definitely leave me suggestions in the Comments. And if you’re seriously into found footage, it’s also well worth checking out Found Footage Critic.
