Hoyte van Hoytema to look after cinematography
Describes process of choosing which version of character to adapt
Star signs on for Skull Island
The Moment: The shit really hits the fan at the end of this horror flick as an unseen force puts a team of paranormal investigators through the wringer. Cue levitation, body dragging and creepy shadows. Why It's Great: It’s obviously heavily influenced by Paranormal Activity, but that doesn’t stop it from being pretty effective.

Skipped straight to #1 to make sure the end of Blair Witch was the best found footage moment ever. Wasn't. FAIL!

still, very fun list to read :)

There seemed to be a glut of cheap found footage knock-offs during 2011/12

The whole of Cannibal Holocaust could really be at No.1, but the most shocking bit for me was the woman on a stick bit, I looked away at the infamous turtle scene

I remember the first time i saw the Signs one - sent (and still sends) shivers down my spine. Just shows how far Shyamalan has fallen when you compare it to his recent stuff. Strange that the majority of found-footage films are horrors. You'd hope there could be someone ou there who could bring us something new, a-la Chronicle.

No spot for the end of Saw 2?
Feb 19th 2013, 14:13
Great list although the climax of chronicle should of been up there . the scene involving the car which is hurtling towards Andrew is amazing

Dark Knight (2008)
Did anyone else remember the footage received by Gotham City News of the Joker torturing and killing a Batman wannabe prior to hanging his body outside the mayor's office?

Unfortunately just goes to show what an overused subgenre this has become - there are some seriously lame sequences from some seriously derivative and wretchedly unimaginative movies here. A Top 20 might have tightened things up a little. And in what sense is your number 2 sequence found footage? Clue - it isn't.

@charleydeppner - Good one, that video is really upsetting.

Ah nice to see Lake Mungo in there - a truly thoughtful take on teenagers and secrecy, and the scariest (or maybe unsettling/disturbing is a better word for it) found-footage movie I've ever seen. Its really not well known enough.

Glad to see 'The Tunnel' on here!
I watched it alone a while ago and deeply regret the alone part!
I was caught out by just how gripping it was.
But Rec is still my favourite horror film of this type, the only film I think ive ever let out a yelp at

No love for the home invasion tape from Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer? That scene was pretty damn unsettling.
Feb 20th 2013, 21:30
The footage of the missing crew of the Event Horizon should definitely have been on that list - Liberate Te Ex Inferis!

Megan is missing is the most horrendous, upsetting film i have ever seen. Images are burnt in my brain forever. The only film i've ever seen that i wish i could un-see.

[REC] should have been No.1. The described scene is arguably the most terrifying scene EVER!
Sad that Hate Crime is missing off this list.
Awful as it was, the whole thing was gut wrenching

SO GLAD that Lake Mungo was on here. The only film I ever turned off for being so scared. Excellent.

More love for Lake Mungo here. That was intelligent and deeply unsettling but criminally under seen.
By the way, why is found footage considered a sub-genre? Surely it's more of a style than genre.

No "Exhibit A"? Painful family breakdown psychodrama with a gut wrenching ending. A bit too close to the bone with recent headlines in Britain, maybe.

[Rec] should have been number 1! Best found footage film and I don't know why a scene from Quarantine was included when it was literally a shot for shot remake of [Rec]! You may as well have put the boy in the attic scene from [Rec] in there instead! I am however pleased to se Chronicle on this list! I loved that movie and feel like it doesn't get enough praise!

I just got paid $5500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $7k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less.
