Found footage has certainly been a mixed blessing for the horror genre – while it has enabled a wide range of movies to be made that once upon a time would have been impossible, some of which use the device very effectively, it has also seen a slew of pretty poor movies and also become what I would argue is a pretty tired cliché. With all that said, there are certainly a few I've liked – Skew and Exhibit A chief among them – and over the next few weeks I'll be taking a look at some extreme examples of found footage horror, kicking off with the 2007 Canadian offering, Long Pigs.
