Re: Found Footage Films

Just watched "Area/Tape 407" - overall it's okay , nothing that will really make you jump. Left too many questions unanswered by the end. They really should have done away with the ending scene reveal , it's just way too hokey. Some things are never left unseen.

Yea, I just watched Skew myself, and was very, very disappointed. It just kind of "was", and didn't do anything smart or new. And the ending... dumb as dirt. The director is PM'ing people on IMDB to explain the ending and I basically said, "If you have to tell people what your movie was about, and what the ending was, you failed as a director."

The performances were okay, but everything was so flat, nothing stood out. A couple of "boo scares", doesn't make for a scary movie.

it will be the horror channel Saturday 30 June 2012
wait until then

Re: Found Footage Films

I watched Atrocious the other day. Was ok. As far as hand held cameras go it wasn't too bad on the shakey camera front. I have Quarentine 2 on my list and hopefully gonna get to see rec.

Re: Found Footage Films

^UV, Quarantine 2 is not found footage or cinema verite, it is filmed normally and was just okay.  Definitely watch REC first.

Re: Found Footage Films

I'm thinking of watching REC either tonight/tomorrow, be good to see what you think too Ultra.

There are so many found footage films that are pants, I just saw Emergo/Apartment 143. It started out well but the end was just like WTF?!

Re: Found Footage Films

Most found footage films start alright and get terrible by the end cause the ends are all the same the camera hits the ground and you see something as it is on the ground and then the film ends with no real resolution to the problems lol

Re: Found Footage Films

Home Movie.  5/10
slow going. not much action. bland characters

Re: Found Footage Films

So no love for Skew? an indie canadian flick... or did it just go over your heads?

Re: Found Footage Films

No love for Skew cause it was poorly done. It didn't go over my head at all. In fact, I think it went over the directors head, cause his vision was not captured.

I'll straight out spoiler...

SPOILERS FOR SKEW!!! (kinda)







According to the director, there

Re: Found Footage Films

skew was a hidden film that was totally hidden and to figure it out was hidden everything about it was hidden but it didn;t go over the directors head it was all hidden. I think he thought we could read his mind!

Re: Found Footage Films

Didn't even notice my post came out incomplete. Had a big rant about the flick, and now it's gone. Oh well, just like the movie, the point isn't there. wink

Re: Found Footage Films

^Yeah, I didn't care much for it either.

Re: Found Footage Films

Blair Witch Project.  Paranormal Activity is right behind that.

Re: Found Footage Films

Watched Trollhunter today and loved it. Definitely one of the better FF films.

Re: Found Footage Films

Anyone know the name of the movie that came out a few months ago, wasn't in the theatre all that long.

A husband & wife move into the wife's parents house, the parents are long since dead, she carries a video camera around while at the house, she works as a cleaner in a mall, she ends up going crazy, etc.

Re: Found Footage Films

OK some of these I haven't watched so far but... lolz:
- Cannibal Holocaust (1980) After watching that I swear I would never watch any  cannibal films.

-The Paranormal Activity series.

-The Blair Witch Project.

-Cloverfield.

Re: Found Footage Films

I'd love to know when the Toynbee Tiles (IMDB link) movie \"Resurrect Dead\" (link is to site and trailer) is coming out.

Re: Found Footage Films

Wow...thanks!  smile  I put it in my wait list after seeing a post by you about it and waited for it to become available.  Was pretty interesting.

I really need to see a good FF movie!  Been way too long with too many let downs.

I would recommend Chronicle , maybe not horror but it was filmed in a found footage style with hand held cameras and shaky cam footage.

It could have easily veered to horror though but it never did though it got pretty dark towards the end.
