Found Footage




While typically a believer in the adage that one should always under promise and over deliver, I simply cannot overstate how amazing this link is. You are well-advised to dawn a helmet before proceeding, for your mind will assuredly be otherwise blown. The Found Footage Festival collects clips unearthed from the hallowed era of VHS (roughly 1985–1995), a wild frontier of lo-fi do-it-yourself videos. It was a time of limitless ambition tempered by tremendously limited production value. This clip, vomitous title sequence aside, is merely a foretaste of the feast to come.
