Shudder exclusive Found Footage 3D is a "Scream-esque meta-horror-comedy"

09.22.2017

Having lived in Hollywood for a while, and working professionally on film sets, I can't tell you how many times indie producer/directors will make found footage horror films because they know that it's cheaper to make, then just end up languishing in the pits of Amazon Prime and iTunes. In fact, watching that trailer for Shudder's upcoming original film FOUND FOOTAGE 3D brought out a lot of bad memories of clueless writer/director/producers (they're often all three) saying things like "we have to, because then there's no movie!" like the characters in the film (though I've never been on an actual haunted set...that I know of). Luckily the films are always terrible - though this one looks like it could be fun, giving off a sort of meta "SCREAM-vibe".

Anyway, here's the official synopsis:

FOUND FOOTAGE 3D tells the story of a  group of filmmakers who set out to make the first 3D found footage horror movie, but find themselves IN a found footage horror movie when the evil entity from their film escapes into their behind-the-scenes footage. A swift, surprising and scary commentary on the Paranormal Activity-style of horror film, FOUND FOOTAGE 3D will stream on Shudder in both 2D and 3D versions. The film premieres October 26th across Shudder in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Not only that, but there are also more originals coming to the Shudder as well:

In CAN’T TAKE IT BACK, two high school girls decide it would be funny to post hateful comments on the Facebook page of a classmate who committed suicide.  They soon learn what it means to take a joke too far. Starring social media influencer and YouTube star, Logan Paul, in a film that mixes classic urban legends with new school social media anxiety, CAN’T TAKE IT BACK, premieres October 12th in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

SPOOKERS features a real-life close-knit New Zealand family who run the most successful haunted house in the Southern Hemisphere; facing their fears so others can face theirs. An authentic, emotional and sometimes spooky celebration of a haunted attraction, the documentary premieres October 26th in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

SEOUL STATION, the animated prequel to last year’s hit zombie film Train To Busan, delivers Romero-esque social commentary in an intense, gory animated thriller and premieres October 5th  in the United States and Canada.

All sound good to me, especially SPOOKERS, as I've always been fascinated by haunted house attractions and what goes into running those.

Meanwhile all the films above will hit the Shudder this October, just in time for Halloween!
