The Most Horrifying Found-Footage Movies

List Criteria: Vote up the top found footage horror films

In the mood for a frightful night? Browse through this list of the scariest found footage films, for movies with the most terrifying fake recordings from cameras unearthed from a creepy basement or the depths of hell or whatever. This list has been ranked by horror film fans and casual critics, so you know each of these best found footage scary movies will be sure to turn movie night into fright night. One of the creepiest types of horror, found recordings are often presented as the only known surviving evidence about a bloody event, like torture or mass slaughter. The 1980 film Cannibal Holocaust is recognized as one of the earliest in the genre, featuring lost film canisters found by anthropologists. Due to its graphic brutality and violence, the movie was banned in several countries, and its director was even charged with obscenity and with making a snuff film. Oh boy! Some of the best horror movies now fall into this genre, including V/H/S, Paranormal Activity, and The Blair Witch Project. If you don’t see a particular movie with scary found footage listed, go ahead and add it to the list. Or, if you don’t agree with the rankings, you can vote for your own favorite scary movies featuring found footage and get it placed higher on the list.
