Phantom Troublemaker is joined by Beth V and by Doc Rotten from Horror News Radio to talk about found footage horror movies!
Found footage is a movie subgenre that creates the illusion of discovered events unfolding as a narrative in front of the viewer. Classic examples of the format include The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, and the much larger scale Cloverfield. It takes a lot of planning and skill to execute this particular style of filmmaking effectively, and some are definitely better at creating an immersive, believable experience than others.
Listen in as Phantom, Beth, and Doc Rotten talk about the hows, whys, and favorites of the found footage phenomenon in an all-new 31 Days of Halloween Needless Things Podcast!
