Re: Found Footage Films

Cool Mistress...curious what you'll think bout it. 

I just got done with June 9 (lazy night tonight).  I really don't have anything good to say about it.  For those of you that hated the Blair Witch folks, and wanted them to die...multiply that by 10 for these characters.   

Think I'm gounna take The Meadowoods off my list for now.  That didn't look too good.  Would appreciate info on it if someone has some.

Re: Found Footage Films

Meadowoods was pretty bad IMO. If you disslike annoying characters then don't bother with it LOL.
It did remind me a little af the movie "Zero Day" I think is what it was called. Kinda based on the Columbine shootings. It wasn't horror but a very disturbing movie IMO.

Re: Found Footage Films

Lake Mungo was interesting.. it had a few creepy moments. I felt sad for the family and I found the cell phone incident near the end to be very weird..

Re: Found Footage Films

Of any of the the one I have seen, Meadowoods is probably one of my least favorites.  The characters really annoyed me.  And they were even more annoying in June 9, but I did think the ending was done pretty well, which kind of made up for them.  It was funny, but when I saw the ending of The Last Exorcism, I instantly thought of June 9. 
Mistress, that is part of why I liked Lake Mungo so much, the characters are very realistic, and in spite of the slow pace, they draw you into the story.  That and what they discover about their daughter along the way.

Re: Found Footage Films

The Last Exorcism has been my least favorite so far. I haven't seen Meadowoods or June 9

As for Lake Mungo I agree with you. The characters were very realistic and thats what makes this kind of movie work.

Re: Found Footage Films

Just FYI folks, Zero Day (2003) is not really a horror movie but IS one of the most disturbing character studies and found footage movies I have ever seen. Very real and very good movie.

Re: Found Footage Films

Chainsaw, that 's the one kinda mirroring the Columbine Massacre, right?

Re: Found Footage Films

^Yeah, that's the one. It's a must see smile

Zero Day sounds impressive...I've gotta keep an eye out for it. More than just the found footage idea, I'm a fan of anything that really tries to just be realistic.

There is one scene in particular (think doorway) that I think worked extremely well.  smile

Re: Found Footage Films

^That scene, think cover, gave me chills.  Nicely done!

I liked this movie a lot

Re: Found Footage Films

Saw Meadowoods.  Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Part at the end which I found surprisingly disturbing. 

Felt like we were supposed to be in awe of the main characters.  Like we should be sitting there thinking how evil they were.  Instead I found them annoying and really wanted bad things to happen to them.

5.5 / 10.

Yeah, especially the chick and the ringleader.  They both really deserved to have something bad happen to them!

Re: Found Footage Films

hmmmmm Imma have to give Death Of A Ghost Hunter a watch

Re: Found Footage Films

Yes you do Mistress! smile

Re: Found Footage Films

someone stole all my personal films which I had entitled "Birth of A Breast Hunter".
Mistress featured in Act 23, 27, 30 & 31        it was a work in progress   tongue

Re: Found Footage Films

Let's not forget The Hills Run Red.

Re: Found Footage Films

^ I still say the makers of that really missed out on an opportunity to make a far more compelling and vicious film than what they ended up with, dammit.
LOVED the premise, the film not quite as much LOL

Re: Found Footage Films

^ I didn't like it much either. It coulda been a valid slasher flick but turned into House of 1000 Corpses meets Hostel at the end.

I just found Death of a Ghosthunter on netflix instant! Score! I'll have to check It out soon.

aint that the truth !!!

Re: Found Footage Films

Saw The Last Broadcast.  Interesting and entertaining.  Kinda disappointed with the end...without giving it away...kinda changed the theme of the movie with the camera views.

Overall thought it was worth seeing.  Can totally see how it could of inspired the Blair Witch Project.  Don't know if it did or not.

Re: Found Footage Films

I will have to check that out also

Re: Found Footage Films

Yeah...I got REC coming next, so hope to see that over the weekend.  I know it's supposed to be good, and one of the better found footage films.  I was just late seein it, plus I typically avoid the dubbed movies, with a few exceptions.

So...curious what you'll think of the Last Broadcast.
