Found footage is a genre of filmmaking, especially horror, in which all or a substantial part of a film is presented as an edit of recovered footage, often left behind by missing or dead protagonists. The events onscreen are seen through the camera of one or more of the characters involved, who often speaks offscreen. Filming is often done by the actors themselves as they recite their lines, and shaky camerawork is also often used to maintain realism. While it dates back at least as far as 1980's Cannibal Holocaust, the genre was firmly established after the release of such films as The Blair Witch Project (1999), Cloverfield (2008) and Paranormal Activity (2009). The technique has also been used in science fiction, such as 1997's The McPherson Tape and Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County.

Cool list ! But I'm not sure if Day Zero belongs to this genre.
Posted: 7 years ago at Oct 31 12:52
Thanks, it was supposed to be "Zero Day" instead of "Day Zero" I dragged over the wrong title. I appreciate your attention to detail :)
Posted: 7 years ago at Oct 31 13:25
You can add "The Troll Hunter" to this list.

Do you know if there is a link between 'Paranormal activity' and 'Paranormal entity' ? Never heard of the 2nd one...
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Jan 16 20:49
It was a cash-grab clone. Its like "Transmorfers" vs "Transformers"...

Liked the list because, for some reason, these films are a weakness of mine.

From the maker/director of Noroi:The Curse...Shirome and Occult:The Unidentified - both found footage

Is it just a horror subgenre or are there other types of found footage movies?
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Feb 9 22:12
VHS - found footage AND anthology - 2 horror subgenres for the prce of one ...and its pretty damn good
