About

Hey Everyone,

MeMy 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………………

  1. Why doesn’t you maintain a list of your reviewed or favorite Top 50 or 100 Found footage films? And based on your reviews/ratings you can update that list time to time. Even the name of your site kind of implies that 🙂
    Thank you, this is a good place for FF movie fans.
    Lately, I’ve started a FF movie tournament in a forum-board where I’ve been a member since 2006! There are few members but most of them are great horror aficionados. You’re welcome there…

    • Hi Sanjid.
      We did run an updated list when we first started out but it became impossible to maintain – there are so many great FF movies out there now it’s impossible to fit them into a list of any sort. We chose our title due to the fact it was a popular search term and there was little competition for this type of website out there.
      We’re glad you enjoy the site and hope to see you here again!
      Oh, and thanks for the link and the invitation to your forum tournament 🙂

  2. Hello Chris, I was (desperately) searching a website like yours – all about found footage horror movies. I’m addicted to the genre too. And even the worst FF horror movie leaves me wanting more. Thank you very much keeping the site up! Wishing you all the best…

  3. Hey Chris, great to stumble across this site! I know it’s now popular to slate the found footage genre due to its general inexpensive set up, yet I find a home here. Personally, I’ve always put it down to it being a first person situation that’s out of your control. Bringing it closer to the viewer than the way horror (or any other genre) is generally shot.
    Anyway, just wanted to give you a thumbs up for the reviews, which have now become ‘a checklist’ (as long as I can find them here in the UK!)

    • Hey Paul – great to have you here!

      No problem about being in the UK – I’m Welsh (Cardiff, sometimes Swansea, sometimes Carmarthen….sometimes London!!!!) so drop us a line if you struggle to find any of the films and I’ll see if I can dig out the links I have used to watch them through! 🙂

  4. Hi Chris
    I am happy to say I found your site yesterday. I am a big horror fan with found footage being by far my favorite style. I will be sending you comments now and look forward to going through all of your information here. If you haven’t already had the pleasure of watching it, please watch “Don’t Move”!!!! It’s by BloodyCuts and can be seen on YouTube. It’s a 14 min short horror film. It’s not found footage but I was more than impressed. Wow. I never watched shorts but this one made me a fan. Let me know your thoughts. Look forward to talking going forward. So great to find your site!!!

    • Great to have you here Mike – look froward to your comments and having a chat! 🙂
      (and I’ll check out that horror short!)
