Blockbuster Movies That Cost Next to Nothing to Make

18 March 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

When you think of blockbuster movies, you think of huge budgets, astronomical paydays for its stars, and a mammoth press tour. But every once and awhile, a smaller movie proves that all wrong. As we gear up for the spring and summer movie extravaganzas, we wanted to take a look back at the films that were made on a shoestring budget (at least by Hollywood standards) and wound up making some serious bank. You don’t always need A-listers and commercial tie-ins for a movie to be a box office hit, and these 10 classics (which are listed in no particular order) prove just that.

Note: all box office estimates are courtesy of BoxOfficeMojo.com.

Paranormal Activity (2007)

Estimated Budget: $15,000

Box Office Tally: $108 million

Thanks to strong word of mouth and a viral campaign, this spooky found footage horror flick (sound familiar?) about a couple being haunted by spirits in the wee »

“I’m Pretty Sure She Saw Something”: David Robert Mitchell on It Follows

11 March 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Lo-fi horror films have enjoyed a modern renaissance ever since The Blair Witch Project, and while the quality of the genre is often overcast by the sheer quantity of its offerings, the profit margins all but ensure Blumhouse and comrades’ staying power. As such, it’s nice to see an aesthetically exacting, relatively high-concept pallet cleanser take its turn in the spotlight. Last year, we had The Babadook, and this year, all signs point towards David Robert Mitchell’s absurdly entertaining, expertly crafted It Follows as the genre’s banner breakout. Mitchell’s sophomore film has myriad virtues — a Carpenter-worthy score from Disasterpeace, and a foreboding use of wide pans, for starters — but it’s […] »

Indie Filmmakers, Fear and Procrastination

2 March 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Daniel J. Harris on indie filmmakers, fear and procrastination…

Every aspiring filmmaker on the planet thinks that they have a great idea, great script, a unique story and way of telling it that engages audiences. Otherwise – why would we bother? You must have belief in your own ability – right?

Well, yes and no. In order to give up everything and burn all other bridges to pursue a career as a filmmaker you need to have the minerals – to quote Guy Ritchie’s Snatch. But, as artists we’re insecure and often fragile. Sometimes we don’t want to let go of our little story, or let too many people hear about it for fear of ridicule or rejection. We tell ourselves it’s a great story and it’ll make a great film. But…. Maybe it needs a little more work. Or perhaps… the time isn’t right. Or maybe »

Trailer for The Woods Movie – The Making of The Blair Witch Project

17 February 2015 12:24 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Back in 1999, not a lot of films scared me or made my heart skip a beat. I started to hear about a film that played at Sundance that year that was being touted as the scariest film some people have seen. I started following the film and got wrapped up in the story behind it. Unlike many mainstream filmgoers, I knew the film was fake but it was so deep rooted in mythology that it was easy to just dive right in and believe the story. To this day, The Blair Witch Project is one of the few films that made my heart skip a beat. I took my mother to the premiere and she agreed with me that it was very effective. Once those end credits rolled, we heard many complaints from audience goers claiming “That was bullshit” or “I want my money back”.

Project Almanac Review

16 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The found footage genre has come a long way since The Blair Witch Project proved it was a viable gimmick to feed to the cinema going public, with, in recent years, super hero movies and teen comedies getting in on the action. Now, it's the turn of the time travel movie to the found footage with Project Almanac (which went through a few name changes from Cinema One, to Almanac, to Welcome to Yesterday), which follows a group of friends who find a working time machine, and, being teenagers, use it for personal gain, from winning the lottery to going backstage at a music festival. But, wouldn't you know it, their tampering with the time line has unforeseen consequences. From the off, you can clearly see that director Dean Israelite is trying to pull off exactly what Josh Trank did with Chronicle, with Project Almanac having a structure and tone »

Scream: ranking the movies in order of quality

16 February 2015 1:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Which is the scariest Scream of them all? We’ve put the satirical, postmodern slasher series in order…

This feature contains spoilers for all of the Scream movies.

Do you like scary movies? Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson decided most people probably did. In the mid 90s, they breathed life into a flagging genre by creating a new knife-wielding icon who, crucially, was aware of all the horror movie villains who’d gone before.

In fact, ‘Ghostface’ was so into his horror trivia that he quizzed his victims about it before striking. Could watching enough horror movies save you when your own life threatened to turn into one? According to Scream, maybe it could.

Although the first movie ends with – spoiler! – the death of both the killers behind the mask, the Ghostface persona proved harder to kill. In the tradition of so many other slasher villains, Ghostface came back for more. »

'Friday the 13th' Reboot Won't Be a Found Footage Movie

16 February 2015 1:07 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form revealed that last month that they had hoped to start shooting the reboot of Friday the 13th by the end of this year. Brad Fuller recently sat down for an interview with Esquire where he revealed that the script is still being worked on. In the article, he previous shot down rumors that it will be a "found footage" style movie (inline with movies like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity) and said that they're aiming for a budget somewhere between The Purge's $3 million and their 2009 reboot's $20 million budget.

"You can't do a great kill quickly. It takes time and the blood levels. You know, every time there's a drop of blood you have to change their wardrobe and shower people off. You can't rush that to get it right."

Actor Derek Mears played the iconic killer in Platinum Dunes' 2009 Friday the 13th reboot, »
