  • Rose Ella-Mae

    – ‘The Blair Witch Project’ will always be an annual Halloween flick for me.. it started it all really, and nostalgia pretty much demands a yearly viewing.
    – ‘The Poughkeepsie Tapes’
    – ‘The Sacrament’
    – ‘Cannibal Holocaust’

    Definitely a few of my favourites; I tried to limit myself to three.. but, ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ is just so iconic I couldn’t stop myself. ‘The Sacrament’ was so good for me, because I do lots of research / work on serial killings and homicide in general and the Jonestown massacre is a case that’s always fascinated me. ‘The Sacrament’ was really well done.. as was ‘The Poughkeepsie Tapes’. I will forever have my closet completely door free, with only curtains there that I tie back!!

      Thanks for your feedback!

    Well I’d say
    1. REC
    2. Grave Encounters
    3. Blair Witch Project

  • _Susan_Jones_

    Well the first one maybe isn’t in the true “horror” genre, but I’ll say number one-
    ‘The Sacrament’ by Eli Roth.
    ‘Cannibal Holocaust’. ‘
    ‘Cloverfield’.

    • FoundFootageCritic

      The ending of “The Sacrament” is pretty horrific! So it more than qualified. 🙂

  • 1. Blair Witch
    2. VHS 2
    3. Rec
    4. As Above So Below
    5. McPherson Tape

  • Danny Baskins

    The Houses that October Built

  • Rochelle

    houses that October built

  • Brooke

    The Houses October Built

  • MC

    Houses October Built

    • FoundFootageCritic

      It looks like “Houses October Built” is gaining momentum!

  • Steve

    Houses October Built. Slow burn… Ending lets your imagination fill in the blanks.

  • Brad

    Specially for Halloween, its got to be THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT. But I love POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES too.

    • FoundFootageCritic

      I couldn’t agree more with the Halloween theme!
      Poughkeepsie Tapes is also up there!

  • I think I will go with:

    Alien Abduction
    [rec]
    Exists
    The Banshee Chapter
    V/H/S 2
    Afflicted

  • Mishael

    Grave Encounters!! <3

  • Hey! Love the vote!

    I’ll go with these: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, THE LAST BROADCAST, ALIEN ABDUCTION (it’s better than expected), THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, CLOVERFIELD, BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3, SKEW, THE LAST HORROR MOVIE, and THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN.

  • For Halloween I think part of the fun is re-watching super accessible films with people who have never seen them, so finding movies that are really fun for most people and have a high production value are key. I’d go with [REC], [REC 2], V/H/S, Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield. I think these are all, fun, accessible, and something you can just throw on in October and just enjoy them.

  • Peter

    Yellow Brick Road
    Devil’s Pass
    Extraterrestrial

    • FoundFootageCritic

      Devil’s Pass is a GREAT FF Film.

      Is “Yellow Brick Road” found footage? From what I’ve seen the film appears to be cinematically shot for the most part.

  • Michael Pallante

    Grave Encounters
    The Taking of Deborah Logan

    • FoundFootageCritic

      Thanks! I can’t argue with those choices (they are on my personal favorites list).

  • drewslegacy

    Marble Hornets (2009)
    Paranormal Activity
    haunted changi

  • TalkingCrazy

    The Houses October Built (2014)- for the pure ambience,it seems to capture halloween for me
    Digging Up The Marrow (2014)- this was just fun to watch the creatures are perfect for halloween
    Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon cause in the movies reality all horror movie villains exist

    • FoundFootageCritic

      I’ll go on record and say that I’ll be very surprised if “Houses October Built” doesn’t make the cut!

      • TalkingCrazy
