That's why I chose to write about The Blair Witch Project as another of my Halloween must-see movies. It's the film that introduced me and many others to the found footage trend and since then I've begun a PhD thesis on found footage horror. I try to see every example but that is becoming increasingly difficult with the sheer amount that get released every year. Blame the success of Paranormal Activity for really bringing back the trend recently.
Anyway as much as people hate the found footage fad, I think there are some absolutely fantastic examples which is why over at Filmoria I decided to share my top 10 (plus a few more worth catching).
Back in July I defended found footage from its critics over at Boolean Flix which you can read here.
Yesterday at Filmoria I argued The Blair Witch Project is a must-see Halloween movie.
And is that isn't enough shaky-cam action and you want to find some other examples that you may or may not have heard of, then please check out my top 10 found footage horror movies over at Filmoria.
Forget Christmas, Halloween is definitely this horror fans favourite time of the year!
