Fantasia Review: CYBERNATURAL

Cybernatural 3

While the found footage/pov sub-genre has seemingly been done to death, this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival has done its best to prove otherwise, with completely solid efforts such as the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass horror-comedy CREEP (review soon), and now, Leo Gabriadza’s Skype-based horror film CYBERNATURAL.  The technology-led horror film not only provides viewers with enough shock and […]

Review: SX_TAPE

sxtape-sx_tape-movie-poster-large

Most gripes falling within the found footage sub-genre of horror tend to be focusing on unlikable characters, the insisting of filming EVERYTHING at all times, and the slow burn of waiting for something to happen. While films like CLOVERFIELD, V/H/S/2 and THE DEN did a great job of breaking those trends, most found footage films, […]

Review: MR. JONES

Mr.-Jones-STILL-85-RGB

It’s refreshing to expect one thing from a film and to walk out of it, having sat through something completely different than what you initially thought it would be. While the genre has had more than its share of bad found footage/POV-style films, every once in a while one comes that dares to do something different, […]

Anchor Bay’s Mind-Bending Horror Thriller MR. JONES Heading Your Way In May!

Mr.-Jones-STILL-85-RGB

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to check out Karl Mueller’s genre and mind-bending thriller MR. JONES recently, and while our review of the film will be up later this week, I will say it was one hell of a time. Having previously written the Xavier Gens-helmed thriller THE DIVIDE, Mueller’s directorial debut […]

We’re Glad They Found This Footage: SIX POV MOVIES THAT WE LOVE

POV

Let’s be honest here. Out of 10 “found footage” type films, you’re lucky if two or three are actually enjoyable. Why the characters in said sub-genre always seems to have to document EVERYTHING might have worked early on, when the style was created, by 2014, we’ve seen so many variations of it, that the films […]
