Aliens: Zone of Silence (2017) – User Review

I love the sub-genre of alien abduction in the found footage world. It’s a fantastic combination and I’ve experienced SO MANY good movies shot this way. Last one was Phoenix Forgetten, an almost perfect found footage. But I’ve got SO disappointed wathing this one… There are just too many ideas put together and in the WRONG way. And by this I mean they’re breaking the ...

The Monster Project (2017) – User Review

I really need to put my two cents about this movie, ’cause I think it’s getting too much credit… As a found footage purist, I have to warn every fan of the genre to be careful, ’cause this movie is gonna be quite painful… Almost EVERY found footage rule gets trashed and the result is a total loss of immersion. I HATE this type of movie because here you have a good cas...

Mortal Remains – A Good Mockumentary

I started to watch this mockumentary with really high hopes, seeing the outstanding ratings. And I really wanted to LOVE it. But the reality is that (to me) it is an average good mockumentary, nothing more. And it is hard for me to say this because I always love the enthusiasm of independent filmmakers. In fact, I loved, for example, “Leaving D.C.”. But let’s get to business and ...

Leaving D.C. (2012) – User Review

This is the kind of found footage I LOVE to find. Gosh, what a gem! Leaving D.C. is a one-man show since the movie is in the form of a videoblog brought on by Mark (the protagonist) and most of the time it’s just him on screen. Mark has OCD and this is a really interesting feature, linked to many details in the movie. What I love about this movie are its simplicity AND originality. Take note...

Cloverfield (2008) – User Review

Ok, ok. Maybe the title I used is a little bit pretentious. I mean, there are other awesome found footages. But let me use this title with this MASTERPIECE. I was in the mood for a good classic, I chose Cloverfield and gosh… Every time it’s almost as good as the first time. I’ll not consider all the (clever) marketing moves before the movie got out, let’s just consider the ...

Operation Avalanche (2016) – User Review

I really love these guys. I already loved them in “The Dirties” and I love them also here. Especially Matt Johnson, the protagonist and the director. He’s an amazing actor(he chooses the perfect roles that suit his acting) and a really creative actor. But let’s be precise. This ISN’T a horror found footage, that has to be said. As “The Dirties”. But I don&...

The Visit (2015) – User Review

I’m very disappointed by this one. I knew it was one of the most famous found-footage movies in recent years (even if fame is hardly ever a good quality for found-footage), but I never got to see it. I didn’t even know it was directed by Shyamalan. I’ve found out that just now, at the end of the movie. And let’s say that I kinda understand better now all the negative things...

Phoenix Forgotten (2017) – User Review

Finally I’ve found a totally satisfactory found footage film! I don’t get at all the user ratings on this one, ’cause it is almost perfect found footage. But let’s start analyzing it.The reason for filming is totally reasonable. Because the movie appears to be a mockumentary, done by a girl(Sophie) The reason for filming is totally reasonable. Since the movie appears to be ...

Alien Abduction (2014) – User Review

I started watching this movie not knowing what to expect: the site rating is really high, while the users rate it differently. I think that the truth is in between these two outcomes. It started badly, really badly… Some annoying “spooky” written information to explain that the tape is “real.” When will found footage directors understand that NOT writing is 10 times m...

Exists (2014) – Overedited and Disappointing

I’m really disappointed with this found footage film. I’ve seen good rates and was hoping to see something good, but I did not enjoy it very much… And the disappointment is bigger if I think that the director is the same that realized the masterpiece The Blair Witch Project, a movie that seems to be made by a totally different person… I know that he directed also a part in ...

The Bucks County Massacre (2010) – User Review

Finding a good found footage is really hard! But this one, even if not very original, can be considered a pleasant one. The plot is simple: a birthday party becomes a nightmare when a girl goes missing and panic starts to spread. The movie takes some ideas from good old found footage classics and that’s a good thing! It begins as the recording of a party (like the starting situation in Clove...
