Found Footage Review Archive

Love 'em or hate 'em, "found footage" horror features are a popular sub-genre.  They offer new filmmakers an economical opportunity for a debut feature that might have a chance of being distributed either on physical media or streaming services (or both) and mor experienced filmmakers an opportunity to play with the "language" of film.  The results aren't always pretty (well, they're never pretty aesthetically), but there are a few diamonds in the rough.  The list of reviews below are not a select list of the good ones; rather, it is a list of review links to the "found footage" titles I've covered thus far.

Breaking Glass Pictures tries on BOB'S NEW SUIT (review)

A fine Italian suit (made in China from materials produced in India) seems to be destined to be the wedding suit of carpenter Bob who has finally proposed to his girlfriend Jenny.  His overbearing mother is overjoyed but his father is distracted by his own deep dark secret about his past, and his transgendered sister has decided to start living as a man and wants to marry her girlfriend.  There's plenty of family drama to ruin the nuptials; however, cousin George's illegal plant trafficking business could bring in the feds (and uncover even more damaging family secrets).
