My name’s Chris and I have been a complete Found Footage Horror Movie addict for the past ten years or so!
If I’m honest it’s not only Found Footage that floats my boat – I love just about every horror genre out there ( except the Twilight franchise which sucks ass! ).
I suppose I’m a geek at heart as I only ever enjoy watching science fiction or horror. I’m not one of those ‘all action hero’ guys and I’m never likely to be either.
Bruce Willis sends me to sleep ( except in Sixth Sense of course! ), Sty Stallone needs to calm down on the supplements, James Bond is too English and don’t even get me started on Schwarzenegger!
I have worked online full time for the past six years and in that time I have run over twenty different websites. This is the first website that I would consider a labor of love! It is my own piece of internet real estate and it is dedicated to one of my favorite passions!
My first encounter with this genre came way back in 1998 when I was ill with the flu. I literally spent about two weeks lying prone on the sofa watching movies and throwing up over the side into a kitchen bowl!
Anyway, I got through just about every horror and science fiction movie on offer through cable until I stumbled upon Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County.
My world changed in that hour and a half period and I never looked upon horror or science fiction the same way again!
I was transfixed with the low quality camera work and the dark atmosphere the directors had managed to create within this film.
I was also amazed at the fact that there was no real money spent on this film – it didn’t look like a B-movie it looked more like a Z-movie!
Since that fateful flu-ridden day I have never looked back and the found footage genre sort of evolved with me! Within about 12 months of my first viewing of Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County a certain Blair Witch decided to antagonize three hapless students filming a documentary and the found footage genre was truly born!
The one thing I ask is that if I ever say anything that captures your interest, you get involved within my site. I love to talk about horror in general – not just found footage movies!
If you ever need any feedback or support regarding your found footage ideas or attempts, I would be more than happy to connect. Simply leave your comment below and make sure you visit my site regularly as it is an ever-evolving horror machine!
Anyone fancy a quick walk around a dark forest with a camcorder………………
