Apartment 143.
Liked it better than PA.
I'm thinking 7/10.

Re: Found Footage Films

With you on the ending of Lost Coast Tapes. Far too vague. Now, I don't need, nor want my hand held, but it was just, very, "meh". Loved everything UP to that point tho.

Re: Found Footage Films

I remember watching a series of mockumentaries associated to the legend of the blair witch before actually watching the movie.  It gave more of a backstory and for me, added the desired effect to creep me out at 14 or however old I was.  Since then, I'm luke warm on these flicks.  They can only really rely on the Cannibal Holocaust/cloverfield-type ending and it's not easy to execute the kind of build up that scenes like that need to work.   I keep watching them though....Chernobyl Diaries?

Re: Found Footage Films

@Jack-
Have you checked out Grave Encounters (2011) (IMDB link)?
Big hit with most people here.

Also, you can do a scan through the rest of this thread for some more ideas.  Basically, at HM if you're looking for something, someone will find it or something like it for you.  The Search function is a bit buggy right now, so it's probably just to ask for ideas, like you did.

Chernobyl was kind of his and miss.  I like Apartment 143, with is like Paranormal Activity, but better.

By the way, I remember those psudo-docus on Blair Witch- I remember them being on Sci-Fi (when it was still called that).

Re: Found Footage Films

^I actually liked Chernobyl Diaries, not a great flick, but it was enjoyable.  Definitely not a found footage flick though.

Re: Found Footage Films

I thought Apartment 143 was pretty decent.  Couple creepy parts.

Re: Found Footage Films

Not horror but - Snow on Tha Bluff.  A gangbanger / drug found footage movie.  While not the most exciting movie it was incredibly well done and had amazing acting.  Acting on par with Zero Day.  I think in many cases it was not acting and they let people just kinda do their thing.  There were actually some fairly tense moments including the opening scene.  Its an instant on flix and you could do much worse.

Re: Found Footage Films

Didn't like Apartment 143 much... They dived headfirst into the over-the-top creepy shit, and by the time the film ended, it felt worn out. I did like V/H/S a lot, and looking forward to the sequel.

Re: Found Footage Films

I going to give V/H/S a watch it later,  i had for few weeks now,

I hope it's good as everyone said it!

Re: Found Footage Films

The creepiest films I've seen in my whole life are Blair Witch and Grave Encounters. Scared the H3LL outta me and I'm not one that gets scared easily. I laugh out loud most of the time. But these 2 woah.

And I just can't wait to see V/H/S. Hopefully it'll be out soon on DVD. Tired of waiting.

Re: Found Footage Films

Any news of Unaware (2010) yet, or Whisper Dead Yet

Re: Found Footage Films

Not really FF but had some elements of one - Alexandra's Project.  Australian movie from 2003.  Was pleasantly surprised by this.  Its an instant on Flix.  Fairly slow build, but really well done and enjoyable.  Check it out.  Curious what others think.

Re: Found Footage Films

Yes that was a very nive one indeed. Great acting and story.
Was very disturbing at times. Like when he watches the video of her with the other dude...

Re: Found Footage Films

^  Yeah!  Plus I didn't really get where it was going.  The end pizzed me off too, in a good way...just so hopeless and evil.

Re: Found Footage Films

Absolutely.
Heard good thinds about it before buying it and wasn't disapointed at all.

Re: Found Footage Films

I'm liking that Demon said "byte me."  He's so digital I have a raging clue.

Re: Found Footage Films

I forgot to mention here that I watched Amber Alert this last week and was not impressed.  Just not enough in the plot to carry an entire FF flick, not to mention one of the most annoying characters that I have ever seen in a FF movie.

Re: Found Footage Films

Saw one I hadn't heard of, more sci-fi than horror - Lunoplis. Really well done and entertaining.

Re: Found Footage Films

Glad to see there's a lot of V/H/S love on this thread! I remember watching it at FrightFest and being blown away by it - Such a fantastic and genuinely scary anthology horror film. Probably one of the best found footage movies of late too.

Speaking of this, you guys might find this interesting smile http://www.totalfanhub.com/vhs/blog/fou … holocaust/

Besides VHS and Cannibal Holocaust, films like Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch are some of my favourites. Though it does feel that the FF genre is a little over saturated now.
