This six movie franchise began with the highly successful indie film of the same name. The film tells the story through the “found footage” of a demonic entity terrorizing a newly moved in couple and their unfortunate end.
2. The Blair Witch Project
This film is a pioneer and was accompanied with a lot of false internet propaganda to make people believe that the footage was actually real. The movie revolves around three youngsters traveling to the woods to make a documentary on a local witch legend, and how they become a part of it.
3. As Above So Below
An assembled crew dive deep into the catacombs of Paris, to find an ancient stone that has the powers of longevity and healing. What ensues is a terrible ordeal as the members descend into real hell, and their horrifying struggle to find their way out.
4. [REC] Series
Zombie films have become quite common and now they rarely ever manage to scare. However, this film is one that takes the concept of zombies to a real high. Shot in a believable and plausible manner, the movie explores handheld footage of two journalists who get caught in a zombie filled apartment.
5. Grave Encounters
If you have ever watched any ghost hunting reality shows, you would know the thrill behind looking at any actual footage of a probable ghost. This very thrilling movie is based on the same concept as a reality show crew lock themselves up in a haunted mental asylum, and truly find the evidence that they had been looking for.
