The first ever Jury Award from the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival went to FOUND FOOTAGE 3D. This is great news because I watched the World Premiere screening and said this is one of the best found footage films I’ve ever seen, so it was no surprise to me it won the Jury Award. My review of the film will be coming soon, but in the meantime read more about FOUND FOOTAGE 3D.
From The Press Release
We wanted to share with you that FOUND FOOTAGE 3D won the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival’s first ever Jury Award in Chicago this past weekend where the film World Premiered! It will be celebrating its European Premiere at FrightFest in London on Monday, August 29th.
Directed by Steven DeGennaro, Found Footage 3D gives found footage a shot in the arm by pushing the boundaries of the popular horror sub-genre with an inventive meta-narrative.
When he’s hired to document the behind-the-scenes action of the ultra low-budget horror movie Spectre of Death (“the first 3D found-footage horror film”), an aspiring filmmaker packs up his camera and travels with the film’s crew to a creepy cabin in the woods. But when the fictional evil presence from their film begins appearing in his behind-the-scenes footage, he has to figure out how to stop it, or it just may find its way into the real world. In the same way that Scream deconstructed the slasher sub-genre in the 1990s, FF3D takes a found-footage horror movie and populates it with people who are aware of all of the rules, tricks, and clichés of the genre. They know how to make a found footage movie. But do they know how to survive one?
Found Footage 3D is produced by Kim Henkel, co-creator of the original classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, one of the most widely influential horror films ever made. Filmed in Gonzales, TX, the film stars Carter Roy (Refuge, Stuck in the Middle), Alena von Stroheim (Hacker’s Game, The Activist), Chris O’Brien (Alpha House), Tom Saporito (Off Campus), Scott Allen Perry, Jessica Perrin, and Scott Weinberg.
