We were hoping to see it this weekend, but I haven’t been well enough. Maybe next.

I watched The Fear Footage (2018) last night. Very low-budget found footage fare, but also oddly one of the more effective ones I've sat through recently.

A police officer responds to a call about a demolished house reappearing on the spot it once stood and we get his body-cam footage. He investigates and finds his way into the house and eventually finds a weird tape that he watches. Basically, it's a V/H/S setup with 3 mini-films inside the frame story. Definitely done on the cheap, but every one gave me the creeps. Nothing groundbreaking but nothing to complain about either.

I fucking hate clowns.

I watched that just last week. A little slow in parts, but amazing scenery and I always love James Franco. Incredible story too.

My only caution, watch our for jumpscares. They're mostly actual scares rather than fake outs but still. And, I repeat, I fucking hate clowns.

Thank you for the heads up.

We watched a found footage recently where three people go off into the countryside to stay at his dad’s posh house, but on the way there’s an incident, and then at the place they are using binoculars out the window and they see someone involved in the incident and then stuff happens, I but I can’t remember the name of it. I’ll have to check with the Sloth. Sorry, not very useful that, was it. :lol:

4K. Unless you watch it in 4K (or iMax Scream) you are bound to miss the movie's extraordinary extraordinarinessness because that's where the film's extraordinary extraordinarinessness is built in. There only, and only there. Things would be different if the movie were based on a true story and starred the delectable Natalie Potman, but the producers decided against including either, so 4K/iMax Scream are the only places where you find it.


I watched it on 4K and thought it was good. Some aspects of it were great. Slow to start though and the awkward pacing continued through the film.

It certainly made up for it's faults. It's a terrific concept and a good movie.

4K didn't push it into "masterpiece" territory though. Disappointing.

Not fond of Renée Zellweger but the story is too good. Her singing is pretty decent given who she is trying to channel.
I do admire actors that can do it all.

Young Garland is wonderful :popcorn:

They were definitely binoculars? I can try to search for found footage with binoculars. Nothing else memorable that might feature in a search? No actors we've seen before?

Binoculars and some kind of burial ground or sacred ground. Also kidnap.

My search has so far brought up a French film with what looks like a blue vampire.

Hmm no.

The film is of tapes being watched by police investigators. There are 3 youngsters, two girls, one chap. They’re going off to his dad’s second residence or something and on the way, he stops to buy booze, but he’s underage so he ends up just snatching it from the counter. As they make their getaway, they collide with another car, and see a girl in it. The police recognise the girl as a missing person. The three proceed to the house, get pissed etc, then start using (I think) binoculars, and see someone camping a couple of miles away. They recognise the car as the one they collided with. They decided they’re going to go down there, so they all leave and then weird stuff starts happening, and they find thing like the girl’s hair ribbon and clothing. I won’t say any more, in case you actually find it and might want to watch it. It was on Amazon Prime, I think.
