Debut ‘Found Footage 3D’ Trailer Might Be the Greatest Found Footage Trailer Ever
There are many questions that run through a rational mind when viewing a “found footage” movie. Such as: “Why are you recording everything?” and “Why the hell don’t you drop the camera and RUN?! We’ve all been there. The good ones can cause an audience to suspend disbelief if the action sequences and narrative are strong enough, but those are few and far between. More often than not, the sheer logistics of what’s taking place simply don’t add up.
We’ve been following Steven DeGennaro’s FOUND FOOTAGE 3D, literally, since the launch of Modern Horrors. We’ve been there through the crowdfunding, through the interviews, through fruit getting absolutely destroyed in DeGennaro’s kitchen, and now after all of this time, we’re finally getting our first glimpse of it in the debut trailer. This is a film that has been vocal about wanting to do for the Found Footage genre what Scream did for the slasher genre. And if this trailer is any indication, it might do just that. It’s deliciously self-aware.
Check it out below, and if you’re a technology nerd like me, keep in mind that you can catch it in 3D if you have a 3D television, red-blue goggles, or a Google Cardboard VR headset by signing up for the Found Footage 3D backstage area.
I’m pumped. Let us know your thoughts, and be sure to check it out at this year’s Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival or the 2016 London FrightFest.
