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
We aren't even in official release yet and Found Footage 3D is already being hailed by several major outlets as one of the best films of 2016 and a must-see release in 2017.
Over at Birth.Movies.Death, Kayln Corrigan asked indie filmmakers to pick their top 5 movies of 2016. In his selection of FF3D, horror icon Joe Lynch says "what gobsmacked me what how well the 3D worked both as a comment on the format but also to legit work the crowd... This was a perfect genre festival screening; laughter, cheers, actual SCREAMS as the film unfolds. The audience felt exhilarated when it was over."
iHorror names us one of the 5 Film Festival Horror Movies to Look for in 2017. Jason Coffman calls the film "a smart, funny satire of the form that happens to double as an excellent example of it" and lauds the movie's "brilliantly inventive uses for its 3D. This is a 3D movie that absolutely must be seen on the big screen for maximum effect."
Found Footage Critic picks us as one of their 5 Highly Anticipated Found Footage Films for 2017: "We can confidently say that this 3D movie is a solid feature that found footage horror fans should place on their must-see list".
And finally, Joshua Millican at HorrorFreakNews puts FF3D on his list of 15 Amazing Horror Movies from 2016 You Probably Missed and says that "all of us who saw Found Footage 3D during its run on the festival circuit agree it’s one of 2016’s best."
Our fall festival run is over. In the final tally we played 21 screenings at 20 festivals in 11 U.S. states and 6 foreign countries on 4 different continents.
Along the way we picked up 15 awards, including 4 Best Features, 4 Audience Awards, 2 Best Special FX, a Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and 4 Best Actors for 3 different actors.
Not a bad haul...
Have no fear if you haven't had a chance yet to see the film. We promise to return in the Spring not only with more festivals, but with news about our general release!
