THE BARBADOS PROJECT – found footage review

DARN IT! This is so close to good that it is super disappointing that it doesn’t bring it on home. These are the movies that disappoint the most because you can see what they were trying to do and this a sincere effort to make a neat movie, unlike SO many found footage films.  While… Continue reading THE BARBADOS PROJECT – found footage review

INTO THE FOREST – found footage review

We all know those… Continue reading THEY’RE OUTSIDE – found footage movie review

DEAD VOICES – found footage movie review

          The hardest thing with so many of these found footage movies I am realizing is that, as sincere and well intentioned as many of these films may well be, that’s just not enough to make them ‘good’ movies. And by good here I mean successful. GOOD is a relative term. I love PLENTY of… Continue reading DEAD VOICES – found footage movie review
