Empire's Found Footage Horror: A History in 20 Movies

The enormous success of both The Blair Witch Project and, later, Paranormal Activity was a double-edged sword for the found footage horror film. Both were made by independent filmmakers working on miniscule budgets, but the off-the-scale box office made found footage look to studios like a no-risk opportunity to churn out content with very little outlay. Found footage has a bad reputation, and it's true that much of what's emerged from the subgenre over the last quarter century or so has been cynically throwaway and ill thought-through. But there are also any number of examples where filmmakers working smartly within the format's limitations came up with great results.
