The Best Found Footage Movies And The One That Started It All


Real die hard fans of the horror movie genre know that the first, and maybe the most terrifying found footage movie was the 1980 movie, Cannibal Holocaust, controversial at the time after rumors swirled that the footage was not fake. As with a lot of the best movies of all time, some thought the footage and story were very much real. The director, Ruggero Deodato, was arrested on obscenity charges because of the extremely graphic scenarios depicted in the movie.


The extremely successful Paranormal Activity was what really injected new life into the genre. A host of other found footage movies followed, notable titles include Cloverfield, V/H/S, and Quarantine, most of which were moderately successful. Horror has seemed to be the go to approach for the majority.


One of the most outstanding that comes to anyone’s mind when you think of non-horror found footage is Project X. Project X takes the viewer through a day in the life of three high school losers just trying to be cool, get the girl, and break all the rules. They achieve their goals in spades when they throw what grows into the greatest party anyone this side of the Pacific has ever seen.


It seems that each year they manage to engage audiences across the globe, thinking of more exciting, unbelievable ways to add a new kind of twist.  Although, even though they are horror movies, they could still use catchy movie theme songs here and there.

  1. All the more as of late discovered film has seen a resurgence in prominence. Chiefs haven’t abandoned reevaluating the class. At that point there are other discovered film thrillers that are really separate from the rest. It make sense in which many people say i don’t want to write my paper and it is very good to understand that all these things might be very good in which these things might have been the thing they do for all for them all too.
