Blah, blah, blah, found footage movies suck. Okay, now that that (far too frequently correct) generalization is out of the way let’s take a look at three new horror titles available this week on VOD. Yes, they’re all found footage films, but there’s a twist… only one of them sucks. Another is mediocre at best, and the third? Well it just might be one of the year’s best horror movies. Hangar 10 follows a trio of friends who head into a British forest to investigate search for gold but get caught up in strange events that appear to echo a UFO sighting there 33 years prior. Exists follows a group of friends who head into an East Texas forest for some deep woods shenanigans but unintentionally piss off Bigfoot along the way. The Taking of Deborah Logan does not involve aliens, Bigfoot or the woods, but it does feature a harrowing look at the pain »

Here a trailer and clip from a creepy looking horror film called The Taking of Deborah Logan. I haven't heard of this film until recently, but it's one that I plan on checking out in the near future. It comes from producer Adam Robitel, who wrote and directed the film. He's also the producer of films such as X-Men, and my favorite Halloween horror movie ever, Trick 'r Treat. Here's the synopsis:
Mia Medina (Michelle Ang) has finally found the perfect subject for her PhD thesis film on Alzheimer’s Disease. For the next several months, cameras will record the everyday life of mother Deborah Logan (Jill Larson) and her daughter Sarah (Anne Ramsay). But as the days progress, strange things beginning to happen around Deborah that are not consistent with any findings about Alzheimer’s.
It becomes apparent that there’s something besides Alzheimer’s that has taken control of Deborah’s life. »
