The wait is over.
Due to popular demand, Shudder has decided to release the 2D version of the film two weeks early! It is available now. Just go to shudder.com and sign up for your free trial membership.
The 3D version (including 3D TV version and red-blue anaglyph version) will be available on October 26th.
We are excited to finally be able to tell you the first (and biggest) piece of news about our distribution plans. We've been bursting at the seams to share this for MONTHS.
Found Footage 3D has been bought by AMC Networks for their horror streaming service Shudder, which has been called "The Netflix of Horror". The movie will be available on their streaming platform starting October 26th, just in time for Halloween! And best of all, it will be available in 2D, 3D side-by-side (for 3D televisions and VR), and red-blue anaglyph 3D. Indiegogo backers: dust off those 3D glasses!
Shudder is currently available in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Ireland. But as we have mentioned, this is only the beginning of the good news. More territories will be announced soon, as will plans for further media, including DVD, blu ray, iTunes, etc.
We know that many of you have been on this journey with us for several years, and we are so grateful for your support and your patience. We can't wait to finally share the film with the wider world!

It's getting harder and harder to fit all of the laurels on our poster. Check out this new version:
The good folks over at Gruesome Magazine have seen fit to put us on the cover of their first ever print edition. Inside, you'll find a great 3-page spread on the film (including an interview with director Steven DeGennaro) that concludes with:
In the end, Found Footage 3D is an exceptional addition to the found footage family of films. While it will certainly be known for the immersive 3D aspect, its ability to seamlessly move from an almost satirical take on the style to an outright horror movie is what it should be lauded and, ultimately, remembered for.
Upcoming screenings include:
- our Scandinavian Premiere TONIGHT in Stockholm at Elmsta 3000 (in 3D, with Alena von Stroheim in attendance!)
- a special screening put on by the awesome people at the Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Film Festival next Friday (May 26th)
- an encore screening in Lublin Poland (where FF3D won four Audience Awards last September)
- and--most exciting of all--our Philadelphia Premiere on June 4th, with hometown heroes Scott Weinberg and Tom Saporito in attendance (plus Heather Langenkamp and Don Dokken as special guests!).
As always, screening info and tickets can be found on our screenings page. Enjoy the show(s)!
I saw 118 feature films in the theater this year, and yet I had a pretty hard time compiling this list. I saw a lot of good movies, but I feel like I saw very few GREAT ones. Very little truly blew me away, including a lot of the films everyone else is putting on their end-of-year lists. It’s not that those movies--or many of the others I saw and liked--weren’t good. It’s just that few of them particularly touched me, for some reason. I can count on one hand the number of times I cried in a theater this year, which is very unusual (I’m a big movie crier; I admit it). And nothing I saw left me as slack-jawed as The Witch or Goodnight Mommy from last year, or pushed artistic boundaries as interestingly as Birdman the year before. I can’t tell if I’m just getting old, or if being a filmmaker and seeing how the sausage is made has made movies more difficult to appreciate. But for whatever reason, it felt like a very 'meh' year for me.
That said, I did see some great stuff, mostly at festivals (of which I attended 10 this year, thanks to Found Footage 3D). I like to include festival movies on my list because I think it’s good to make people aware so that you can catch them in their general release. Here’s the best of what I saw in 2016:Read more
