Can anyone here recommend some decent horror films shot in a POV fashion?

IE blair witch shit, grave encounters, Poughkeepsie tapes - films similar to these.

I'm not gonna lie, the whole Paranormal Activity franchise scared me shitless simply because of the way it was filmed.


ok

8231 Gacy House.

It's not very scary, but I found it entertaining, and kinda funny. Certainly one of the best Asylum movies I've seen.

There are movies like Legend of Boggy Creek, The Last Broadcast, and Lake Mungo.

Those are more like fake documentaries, than POV films. Though some of them do deal with found footage.

Cannibal Holocaust has a lot of "found footage" material in it.

There's a low budget flick called 7 Nights of Darkness that I thought was pretty cool. It's about a group of people that are on a reality TV show and are dared to stay in a haunted asylum for 7 nights in order to win a million bucks.

Sure, there are some (really) dodgy effects, and some poor acting, but its actually a pretty entertaining flick, and creepy in spots. If you liked Grave Encounters, you'll likely find this one pretty good.

the last broadcast is good, if you exclude the ending

the mcpherson tape is fun if you can withstand its lofi aesthetic

There is a movie called The St. Francisville Experiment, and another called June 9.

Both of which are available to watch on Youtube for free.

There's this one movie called "Troll Hunter" that I saw recently, it's filmed in a POV ordeal, and it's hilarious. It's meant to be a thriller/horror movie but it's so fucking stupid that it's hilarious.

I like the bit with the couple in the coffins where they make the guy cut off his penis with nail scissors by threatening to kill his girlfriend and then they take his severed penis and rape the woman with it, although the later vomit rape scene does last for far too long

Not sure if it counts as a "horror" movie, but Cloverfield has the Blair Witch feel to it.

Of course, I cannot watch it without becoming nauseous from the camera-shaking.

They're actually called "Found Footage" films, and they're almost universally shit.

Troll Hunter is the only really good one. Cannibal Holocaust is worth a watch because of how important a film it was with all the video nasty nonsense, but isn't particularly great.

There is a spanish movie called Atrocious. I found it pretty creepy, until the big reveal ending came along and ruined it.

No, he's just a retard, it's a comedy.

A particularly good one. Takes a ridiculous concept and plays it entirely straight.

There is a movie I really like called Incident at Loch Ness.

It's a fake documentary. It's about filmmaker Werner Herzog, producer Zak Penn, and a crew going to Scotland to film a documentary about the Loch Ness Monster.

It's a comedy for the most part, but horror elements come into it when the actual monster shows it.

Can't believe I forgot that one. Great film, but you shouldn't expect anything else from Herzog.

Man, I fucking love Werner Herzog. Only director I know of who was shot in the middle of an interview, and continued talking declaring it to only be a small wound.

[REC] is as you describe, and it's actually a pretty decent film.
