Welcome to Top Found Footage Films

 

Welcome to Top Found Footage Films – the place to be for all the best found footage horror movies out there! Our passion is your passion and we aim to please….

Whether you are stuck in the woods with some old hag battering your tent, trying to catch some paranormal activity at home with your wife’s camcorder, stuck inside an abandoned asylum or simply searching for Bigfoot….you’re all welcome here!

Ah I still remember the days when a pirate copy of Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County sat proudly on my bedroom shelf…..how things have changed since then! These days all you need to do is pop down your local store, pick up a HD camcorder, grab a few friends and smash out a YouTube Blockbuster!

And the coolest thing about this genre of horror movie….you don’t need to be able to act! A few ‘is anyone there?’ linked to a few ‘did you hear that?’ and bang – top found footage films at their best!

Seriously guys it ain’t about the acting any longer ( although granted, it does help! ) as the best found footage horror flicks rely on atmosphere. This is where the genre comes into it’s own – where it evolves above the other horror genres and grasps us all firmly by the neck!

Our site Top Found Footage Films owes it’s existence to a couple of visionary directors who bent Hollywood over a barrel and went to town! I’m talking about Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez – directors of a little known 1999 horror flick called The Blair Witch Project.

Who would of thought that three so-called students disappearing in a forest in Maryland would have kicked up so much of a stir! Widely considered one of the best found footage horror movies ever made – this is the benchmark all newcomers try to reach.

But that was back in the nineties – things have moved on a little since then! Studios are beginning to realize the cash cow that top found footage films provide. All of a sudden C.G.I. and half decent actors are making their way in front of the camcorder…..are things changing for the better?

Hell yeah they are! It doesn’t matter if the film budget is $20 million or $5 – if done correctly you will crap yourself! New producers are now using this format of horror to get noticed on a budget – how cool is that? I stick to my principal that the top found footage films are the ones that manage to capture the atmosphere – and that costs nothing ( well maybe the price of petrol journey to a forest at night but that’s about it! ).

So sit back and enjoy the ride friends – I know I will! Here at Top Found Footage Films we plan to bring you the best found footage horror movies available. We don’t care the about the budget, the country of origin, the language or the quality – if the camcorder shakes we wanna review it!

  1. Hey man,i think i found my new favorite bookmark..It’s nice to see,for a change, reviews made by someone who really loves the genre,and not some uptight generic-horror pundit who usually is overcritical at the ”motion sickness and bad acting”.-Things that i like to think all people watching these kind of movies are aware of since…i don’t know..the early 00’s ?
    Best regards,
    A romanian FF fanatic.

      • I recently saw ”The Conspiracy(2012)”..and it managed to get my girlfriend relatively hooked on these movies ..Don’t think a review about that one is here..yet.Would like to read your thoughts on it.

        • Yeah that was a good film – gonna have watch it again for review purposes here. I have a huge list of films to review but I end up having to watch them over and over again ( this list is pretty big and by the time I get to review them I’ve forgotten most of what happened lol )

  2. Hi, do you ever watch V.H.S. movies?? The first is really good for me, specially for the breath-taking finale!! And how would you rate “Borderlands” a really interesting Brit movie??

    • Hey Alessio!

      Yeah I’ve watched the V/H/S movies and thoroughly enjoyed them – I found the second offering the most entertaining! We recently posted a review on the third installment which was nowhere near as good as the first two offerings but still enjoyable. Borderlands is a pretty awesome film, you’ll find our review on it here – Borderlands
      Cheers for stopping by – look forward to speaking with you again soon :)

  3. hey Chris
    Love the site
    Wondered if you have had the chance to watch and review 2 films you may or may not have heard of. Unaware and Absence – both alien found footage films which i hear are pretty decent but not had the chance to see myself. be good to hear your thoughts on them :)

    • Hey James, sorry for the late reply!

      Yeah I’ve watched them both and they are on the list to be reviewed ( which will involve me having to watch them again! ). From what I can remember I thoroughly enjoyed the pair of them. Nice to see you hear and glad you enjoy the site :)

  4. Hey.
    I randomly stumbled on this bookmark whilst trying to find Find Footage films to watch, it’s super helpful. I’ve been a Found Footage fan for as long as I can remember, dating back to the Blair Witch. I know that movie gets a lot of flack these days, but there are just simply some people that don’t understand what this genre is meant to be about. It’s never about brilliant acting, the Blair Witch was just simply terrifying in such a simplistic fashion, and it felt so real. That made me just fall in love with this genre.

    I’ve seen a lot of shit in my time, and evidently you have too judging by your recent reviews LOL, but there’s always an underrated gem you find that barely anyone else has seen. I don’t care how many times I’ve seen something done, I’ll consistently watch FF movies, nothing is able to terrify me more. There’s just something about feeling like I’m there in the 1st person, and like I’m the person holding the camera.

    Other Horror movies have just never been able to make me want to hide behind something as much, as this genre does. Thanks for giving me a place to find my passion, and introducing so many more people to this amazing genre.

    • Hey there Brandon, great to have you here!!!
      Glad you like the site – feel free to interact with the other followers here ( there are quite a few now! ). I didn’t realize how many Found Footage freaks like me there were out there until I started this site up about a year ago, it’s gone from strength to strength. We are currently looking into running a forum from this site as well so keep an eye out!
      Nice to meet you :)

  5. A few more good FF films I have came across are The Sacrament, Raised by Wolves, Possession of Michael King, Grave Encounters 1&2, Area 51, Always Watching, The Atticus Institute, As Above so Below, The Pyramid, and Hollows Grove. Thats just to name a few :-) I have a hard time finding good FF films but with all of these I found a little something that was just satisfying to say the least. Now I feel as if I have left myself with nothing else to watch. So anyone with any ideas sling’em my way!

    • Hi there!
      All of the films you mentioned have been reviewed here except for The Pyramid…because it isn’t Found Footage ( well part of it is but that doesn’t really count! ). Have a look through our archives or categories on the right side of the page to find something new – we’ve reviewed about 200 titles so far so you’re bound to find a load you haven’t seen yet :)
      Whenever you spot a film you don’t think we’ve covered here make sure you let us know so we can get on the case and get it reviewed!
      Nice to have you here

  6. Love this site, Chris! I’m a huge fan of horror films and actually created an amateur one with some friends a couple of decades back when I was young. I’ll be sure to suggest your site to any of my HalloweenPartyExperts.com visitors who might express an interest in making their own film or finding the best found footage movies out there!

    • Hi Patrick,
      Glad you enjoyed your visit here as much as you did! Feel free to spread the word on us as often as you want – the more visitors/members we get here the better :)

  7. Just want to say thank you for all of your work! This site is awesome. Keep up the good work. I have found some real beauties here, most of them I never even knew existed. You rock brother!!

    • Hey Gabriel!
      Nice to see you here mate! Glad you’re enjoying the site and don’t forget to spread the word :)

  8. Very happy to have stumbled into your site! I’ve been watching a new POV/FF/Mockumentary horror flick every night, and was running out of contenders. When I found you, I was pleasantly surprised to see titles that, not only had I not yet discovered, but very appropriate and useful summaries of those films. Just finished Encounter: Contamination, aka, Encounter 2015, and enjoyed it… Lest the few issues I happened upon. Looking forward to hearing about new horror films in this subgenre!!! ✌

    • Hi there Amy,
      Welcome aboard – glad to have you here!
      We try and get through as many films as possible so there are usually a couple of new reviews popping up over a weekly period. Look forward to seeing you here again soon ( and if you discover any FF beauties – give us a shout! )

  9. One I didn’t notice on here that you should check out or at least give a review of so others can look into it is “Devil’s Pass/The Dyatlov Pass Incident”, watched both that and Skinwalker Ranch on the same night a couple of years ago at a drive in, I actually enjoyed Devil’s Pass more than Skinwalker but they were both high quality productions.

    • Hi Dom,
      Yeah I’ve watched both of these movies ( it’s got to the point where there’s very little I haven’t seen in this genre lol ). The problem I have is there’s so many out there now to review I get a huge backlog after I’ve watched them. This means I have to re-watch them to give them a proper review process!
      I especially enjoyed Dyatlov Pass – I remember it was quite an awesome ending! Skinwalker Ranch was reviewed here about seven months ago – should be able to find it through the search bar at the top of the site ( unless I deleted it by accident!!!! ).

  10. Thank you so much for this site. What I appreciate most is that your reviews are always honest.

    Inner Demons is one of the best movies i’ve discovered on your site.

    • Hi Ian,
      Well thanks for saying so :)
      Glad you like the site so much – don’t forget to subscribe if you want to be kept up to date with our latest publications!!!!

  11. Nice blog. Excellent for my current found footage kick (Wont see a “proper” horror movie for quite a while).

    Have your reviewed Houses that october built? I liked the movie and would love to know your opinion. Would also love you to trash Mockigbird, i regret deeply seeing that movie.

    Aniways great work and keep doing it.

  12. Hey Chris, hope all is well! Been checking in with your reviews for the better part of a year now, just been very silent. Anyhow we just finished our first found footage horror movie and it’d be an honor if you took a look at if you ever got a second.

    It’s sort of our love letter to the found footage sub-genre, so I’m sure we can probably relate on alot of the same favorite movies. Anyhow if you want to check it out it’s available to watch right here http://www.REELHorrorMovie.com

    Cheers Chris – Keep the good fight going!

    • Hey Chris,
      Sorry for the delay – haven’t stopped this week and this site just won’t stop gathering pace!
      Thanks so much for the link. I’ll review the film on this site but the other regulars will see your comment here and also pay a visit ( I will include the link again in the review! ). You are actually the second indie filmmaker to contact us this week so I have two films to go through now ( which is pretty awesome! ). Contact me if you need any more help.
      P.S. I will be reviewing both films asap – we had an advertising problem with the site over the last few days and that has caused us to have a bit of a backlog.

    • Hey Chris – tried watching/reviewing the movie last night but the Vimeo version won’t stop buffering! I’ve got a super-fast connection but it still buffers like mad. Do you have another version online somewhere? Really want to review it!

  13. You should check out and review Legend of the 5ive, embedded, and House of 100 eyes. Pretty good stories and progression. Let me know what you think.

  14. Fantastic website! Thanks for all of the great suggestions!
    Finding a gem in the Found Footage genre is much like finding a needle in a haystack, but the great ones are some of the best horror films ever made.
    Just when I thought I’ve seen all of them, I’ll come across yet another one that blows my mind.
    I agree with most of what’s reviewed here and for all of you running out of titles to watch like me, here are some you don’t hear about too often that aren’t too shabby:
    Safari
    Apartment 143
    Area 51
    The Conspiracy
    Undocumented
    The Hunt (2006)
    Amber Alert
    Skinwalker Ranch
    The Sacrament
    Into The Storm
    Apocalyptic
    Final Prayer
    Afflicted
    Delivery: The Beast Within
    The Dirties
    The Possession of Michael King
    Mockingbird
    Atticus Institute
    Digging Up The Marrow
    The Gallows
    Hopefully I didn’t repeat too many of those mentioned on the site.
    Now, please send me some hidden gems! haha.

    • Hi Randy,
      There are actually a couple of films on your list here that I don’t think I’ve seen – will be looking into them this week :)
      Cheers!
