“You must not watch this. I’m warning you. You can never un-see it, but remember if you do watch…” With that, one of the more intriguing and unusual “Doctor Who” episodes begins. Whovian adventure meets the found footage genre, and a new monster is introduced. Meet me after the time and space jump for my thoughts on “Sleep No More!”
The “found footage” genre of film making is getting a little long in the tooth for my liking. It seems that every other horror film that hits the silver screen is “cobbled together” from somebody’s home video. Hey, I loved the first Paranormal Activity flick, but how many of those do we actually need?
Sorry, I don’t mean to pick any of you PA fans out there, I’m just saying, you know?
Ok. So, let me ask the same question about some “found footage” films that I really do like. Fair’s fair, after all.
The Spanish films REC and REC 2 rank as two of my all-time favourite films in the horror genre. The evidence of that can be found here. I really feel that they, specifically, not only build smartly on the “food footage” genre but also build on the Zombie lore in film.
But REC 3? REC 3 was always going to be different.
