10 Best Found Footage Horror Films You’ve Never Seen
Think “Paranormal Activity” is scary? You’ve seen nothing yet.
Beginning with the massive success of 1999’s ‘Blair Witch Project’ to 2009’s ‘Paranormal Activity’, the found-footage sub-genre has branched out from being a gimmick to an actual story-telling device for filmmakers to explore fear in a brand new terrifying way. It has even branched out of horror and seeped into other genres like sci-fi (the upcoming ‘Chronicle’) and comedy. While most people are aware of the popular films in the genre that include ‘Paranormal Activity’, ‘Blair Witch’ and ‘The Last Exorcism’ among others, I’m not here to list that. Hell, I’m not even here to list some of the less famous but excellent ones like ‘Rec’ (which you must watch). After months of hunting down and watching countless bad to good movies that the found-footage sub-genre has to offer, I bring you the 10 most obscure gems that you’ve most likely never seen. If you thought ‘Paranormal Activity’ was scary, wait till you see what other low-budget indies do with the format. Get ready for sleepless nights.
