A list of ten must-see Found Footage Movies accompanied by Youtube Video
We are back again with another list. I know, if you’re a fan of the Found Footage sub-genre then a lot of these titles would be obvious. But I am hoping that even the most hardcore of fans will find at least one film in here they ain’t heard of.
An unknown virus breaks out in a central Barcelona apartment complex. A local documentary crew, firefighters and residents must fight the infected and find a way out of the quarantined building.
Two best friends decide to vlog their planned trip around the world. After a dodgy sexual encounter with a strange female, one of the friends starts to notice bizarre changes in his body.
DIARY OF THE DEAD
George A Romero’s Diary of the Dead got a lot of shit when it was released. Yeah, it is not without its faults but if you’re a found-footage freak like us, then this is one hell of a good flick.
Usual zombie shenanigans we see with Romero movies…or pretty much any zombie film. A group of amateur filmmakers find themselves thrown into a real-life horror movie when the dead return to life and attack the living.
THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN
This is a terrifying film. Not only is The Taking Of Deborah Logan a brilliant horror movie, but it is also a harrowing, heartbreaking and realistic look at the effects of someone suffering from a degenerative disease like Alzheimer’s or dementia.
A group of filmmakers document the life of Deborah Logan as she battles with a rapidly spreading infectious degenerative disease.
Creep is one of those movies that is so simplistic, it is brilliant. Again, I can understand why some people wouldn’t like it but I really enjoyed this one…and its sequel too.
A strapped-for-cash YouTuber answers an advert and almost immediately regrets his decision when his new “Friend” is a borderline psychopath.
HELL HOUSE LLC
I was late to the game with Hell House LLC. The hype is real with this one as it offers some genuinely unsettling scenes.
A group of friends start to die or disappear on the opening night of their horror-themed haunted house.
Hell House spawned two sequels. The second one is quite good and a continuation of the events of the first. But due to the shitty reviews, I have yet to check out the third part.
The Bay is another found-footage film that had a lot of mixed reviews. Personally, I think it is one of the strongest FF flicks out there.
Chaos and mayhem break out in a small coastal town when its residents start to get infected with an unknown virus.
MAN BITES DOG
Before the Blair Witch Project but after Cannibal Holocaust, we were blessed with Man Bites Dog. A Belgian serial killer comedy made as part of a film project for film students.
Shot in “cheap” black & white, Man Bites Dog is about a serial killer with a fetish for killing postmen and dwarves. A film crew follows him and documents his every kill.
Troll Hunter is a super-fun fantasy movie steeped in Norwegian folklore. A group of filmmakers follow a TrollHunter around Norway as he battles and captures trooooooollllllllllls!
THE UPPER FOOTAGE
The Upper Footage is one I am hoping you guys ain’t seen. A group of friends experience a real-life nightmare when trying to score cocaine. Written and directed by Justin Cole
That’s it for this list. We hope you enjoyed it. As always, thanks for reading.
