A new documentary is coming to Shudder exploring the untold story of a global sensation—found footage horror movies!
Called The Found Footage Phenomenon, the documentary was directed and produced by Sarah Appleton and Phillip Escott and “tracks the origins of the found footage technique and how it transformed with technological changes throughout the last few decades. The Found Footage Phenomenon features interviews with integral found footage directors whose films impacted the horror genre like no other sub-genre has, around the turn of the millennium.”
