Are you missing some footage? We may have found it! And if we did, we’ll be reviewing it here!

I’m Grey, and I love horror—books, movies, and television. There are a lot of sub-genres of horror. Monsters, large (Godzilla) and small (vampires, werewolves); aliens; slashers; ghosts; witches; possessions and exorcisms; and many more.

I love them all, but one of my favorite types of horror is Found Footage. If you’re not familiar with this film technique, here’s what Wikipedia says about it.

Found footage is a cinematic technique in which all or a substantial part of the work is presented as if it were discovered film or video recordings. The events on screen are typically seen through the camera of one or more of the characters involved, often accompanied by their real-time, off-camera commentary. For added realism, the cinematography may be done by the actors themselves as they perform, and shaky camera work and naturalistic acting are routinely employed. The footage may be presented as if it were “raw” and complete or as if it had been edited into a narrative by those who “found” it.

Although there are some earlier movies that some people consider to be Found Footage, the modern age of Found Footage began with The Blair Witch Project in 1999. It was, of course, a horror movie, and since then the majority of Found Footage movies have been in the horror genre.

Note that according to Wikipedia and other sources, Found Footage is not a genre… a type of horror movie, like “vampires”. It’s a way of presenting the movie. So Found Footage can be any type of movie. There are even a few that aren’t horror movies at all.

There are now hundreds of Found Footage movies from many countries. Most of them are independent productions, so quality varies greatly. Pretty much anyone with a couple of camcorders can make a Found Footage movie! Some of them are good. Some of them are bad. A few of them are really bad. And a few of them are really, really good! We’ll be reviewing all of them here. Or at least as many as we can!
