Big Gold Belt Media review of the movie ‘The Found Footage Phenomenon’

The Found Footage Phenomenon movie review

This Movie synopsis: Found footage horror films are like bleu cheese or Steely Dan – you either have a taste for them or you don’t. If you are already a fan, you will need little encouragement to woo you to this exhaustive documentary that traces the origins, impact, and legacy of the subgenre.

But even for the found footage horror skeptics amongst you, THE FOUND FOOTAGE PHENOMENON satisfyingly maps out precisely what has made these films so popular and exposes the sometimes sophisticated social and cultural nuances that make them tick. Stemming back to epistolary horror novels made of supposedly “found” documents like Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel DRACULA and Orson Welles’s legendary 1938 WAR OF THE WORLDS radio broadcast, documentarians Sarah Appleton and Phillip Escott pinpoint technology, media, and our anxieties around them as the central components of the found footage horror engine.
