Five Frightening Found Footage Films You Haven’t Seen

17 July 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Although certainly not the first, 1980’s iconic piece Cannibal Holocaust has become a major reference in the sub-genre of “found footage” films. In 1999, The Blair Witch Project really familiarized mainstream audiences with the concept. If you aren’t familiar with the term found footage, you’ve probably been living in a cave or under a staircase or something since film studios have been pumping seemingly dozens of these out for the past five years or so. Typically, a found footage film is set up like an unedited documentary or compilation of footage from an unseen entity/character and you are led to believe that this footage was recovered after the demise of those involved in making it.

After Paranormal Activity’s huge success in 2007, filmmakers and studios alike started jumping on this money train which resulted in some pretty terrible films. However, I am a big fan of this approach »
