‘Found Footage 3D’ Heading to Shudder…in 3D!


Last year, Steven DeGennaro’s Found Footage 3D made its world premiere at Chicago’s Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival to a crowd of delighted horror fans.

In the film, a group of low-budget filmmakers sets out to make “the first 3D found footage horror film,” but find themselves *in* the first 3D found footage horror film when the evil entity from their movie escapes into their behind-the-scenes footage.

It was awesome, leaving my jaw on the floor. I explained in my review that the film “is an absolute riot that’s also quite scary, setting up a multitude of payoffs that deliver a flurry of satisfying punches.

For those dying to see it, EW is reporting that Shudder has acquired the film for release October 26th in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom, and will stream the movie in both 2D and 3D versions!

Carter Roy, Alena von Stroheim, Chris O’Brien, Tom Saporito, Scott Allen Perry, Jessica Perrin, and Scott Weinberg star.

    Yhhhhhh no thanks. I’ve said before on other articles I’ve banned all found footage films in the house, it is an over done and often incorrectly done genre of film. It is over used by people who either have no clue how to put a film together or hire actors who can act convincingly and often when I see them running about I end of crying out “Drop the F’N camera and run!” but they never do.

      You are going to miss a LOT of good movies. It’s never a good idea to ban a whole genre. Just be selective.

      • DJV1985

        Oh I do, I was generalising but it is rare, as in super rare that I watch a found footage film (FF) because they just don’t entertain me or feel like they’re worth watching. That isn’t to say a couple FF don’t climb over the wall and get in and are watched but in general they are banned because the majority are either terribly made or just not worth watching.

      DJV1985, i pretty much agree w/ you. there are a couple of found footage films i have liked (the REC films, WER, TROLLHUNTER, THE BAY, CLOVERFIELD, CHRONICLE, AFFLICTED) but i agree 100% with you that in most cases it’s used because the filmmaker has little to zero talent actually making a regularly filmed movie.

        It’s a shame because Found footage could be done well. Imagine if a talented guy took that genre and decided to change it up – Here is how I’d try:

        Imaginary scene: Slasher film, think Friday the 13th style –

        A camp site, three teens, two are making out and want to get hot and heavy but they can’t because of the third, the third is sent away he takes his camera with him and starts to wonder about in the forest, we go between him and the hot and heavy teens (always gotta have a little flesh in a horror film lol) and the two teens eventually hear the third scream and call for help. They rush to his aid and eventually find the camera (somehow) they call out to him but can’t find him, one of the teens notices that the camera is still recording so they play it back and we then cut to our Found Footage part of the film and we play out the teen sent away being followed and attacked then killed by the killer (even have moments where we see the killer in the background by the teen doesn’t) and the camera reaches the point where the two teens who were about to bump uglies arrive to where the killing took place we cut back to normal filming.

        End imaginary scene:

        While not perfect or greatly written I think something like that, drips and drabs can work so much better and use the technique far better than us having to sit what is sometimes at least for some, a stomach churning sea sick style view.

          that would be great! it adds the found footage thing but in a well used way!

          • DJV1985

            It’s how I wish the evolution of the Found Footage genre will go sadly with people thinking that their next found footage film, no matter how bad or good they see it, might be the next paranormal activity (As in small budget huge box office) we’ll just keep seeing the same thing.

    • The Drucifer

      I always recommend LAKE MUNGO even though it’s more a faux documentary than found footage

  • Im glad I have Shudder, there are some gems on there, and the list of good movies are improving. This doesn’t sound that good though. Actually it looks kind of annoying.

  • KevinR1990

    I saw Found Footage 3D at its premiere in Fort Lauderdale, and I adored it. It does for found-footage movies what Scream did for slashers: half straight-faced example of the genre, half parody of it, with the two sides meshed together incredibly well. It’s a horror-comedy that works as both a damn fine horror film and a damn fine comedy.

    You can read my full review here if you want:

    …That title alone should have the creator slapped and pissed on.

    • WondrousPoop

      Fun, clever movie and even the title plays into that. Give it a chance.

      • Khy

        • WondrousPoop

          Then who cares what it’s called?

          • Khy

            Who cares period. Fuck this drivel.

    • Micah Unice

      It’s intentionally on the nose. It’s a jibe.

      • WondrousPoop

        This movie was a pleasant surprise for me and I’m not into FF really ever. Definitely will watch again via Shudder.

      • Khy

        Well since you put it like that…No.

        Title is a turn off for me I don’t care if its intended to be “cute”.

  • Micah Unice

    I saw it last year as well, and I can say confidently that it’s as much for people who hate found footage as it for those who love it. It’s both a love letter and a sendup. And it’s legit vicious.
