MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Creep’ Is Incredibly Unsettling

Film: Creep Starring: Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass Directed By: Patrick Brice I have never seen a found footage film quite like Creep, but I always wanted to.

Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” Video Is Basically A Found Footage Short!

Still riding high off the success of her 2014 album release, Ariana Grande has shared a new video built on the aesthetics of low budget science fiction. If you listen to pop radio, or even if you know someone who listens to radio on a semi-regular basis when you’re around, there is a pretty decent […]

Found Footage Terror ‘The Poughkeepsie Tapes’ Finally Arrives On VOD

2008 was a long time ago.

‘Delivery’ Trailer: Guess Who’s Having Satan’s Baby
