909 Experiment (2000) Review

"909 Experiment" is a found footage paranormal horror film and mockumentary written and directed by Wayne A. Smith. The film follows two graduate students who are paid $300 to spend 72 hours in a haunted house and record any paranormal activity as part of an ongoing research study.

The Phoenix Tapes ’97 (2016) Review

"The Phoenix Tapes '97" is a found footage sci-fi/horror film with an anonymous writer, director, and cast. The film follows four friends on a weekend getaway who find themselves at the epicenter of what is now known as the "Phoenix Lights" incident. The Phoenix Lights incident is an actual mass UFO sighting that took place in the Phoenix, Arizona region on March 13, 1997. The film's complete lack of named credits is most assuredly part of the production's marketing strategy to further the film's illusion as actual found footage. The Phoenix Tapes '97 goes so far as to forgo any opening tit...[Read More]
