1 The Blair Witch Project: The story is simple; in 1994 three students go to the woods to shoot a documentary about a local witch and after a couple of days they disappear without a trace. What I like about this movie is that it shows you don’t need gore, special effects and CGI to make an effective and scary horror. This is a perfect example of found footage movie done right.
2. Grave Encounters: A fake ghost hunters are exploring haunted asylum and find more they were hoping for. Has good performances, CGI, black humour and thrills.
3. V/H/S: When a group of misfits is hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they discover more found footage than they bargained for. EPIC!!
4. Paranormal Activity Series: Probably the best Found Footage series. No gore, no special effects, just simple tricks, game with shadows and horrible feeling of something going wrong with no ability to stop it.
5. Cloverfield: A found footage monster movie about a giant creature attacking New York City. Movie vas very intense and creepy scenes. Godzilla + Found Footage = Cloverfield.
6. Chronicle: Chronicle totally a different found footage film. Movie about three teenagers, Andrew, Steve and Matt find a hole in the ground and uncover something that gives them the power to move things with their minds.
7. [REC] & [REC 2]: Both the movies are on the same level of true found footage horror.
8. The Tunnel: The Tunnel is part found footage movie and part mock-umentary about a group of australian journalists, who are exploring the system of abandoned tunnels in Sydney and discover something horrible. Very Intense film.
9. Trollhunter: A funny and exciting trip into dark forest, filled with trolls. The ending of this makes this film special.
10. Occult: A big fan of Kôji Shiraish. Occult is a bit long found footage film. But a decent film that won’t disappoint you.
