Projected Figures: “Scream updated for the digicam generation”


“smart, funny, and frightening”

“This is not so much Scary Movie-style dumb-assed spoofery as self-aware, sophisticated meta-horror – think Scream updated for the digicam generation.”

“the normal boundaries between story and production, artifice and artefact, are utterly deconstructed.”

“Yet by repeatedly drawing attention to the hackneyed nature of his film’s many tropes while still giving each of them a fresh spin, DeGennaro gets to have his cake and shoot it too. The results are smart, funny, and ultimately frightening, making Found Footage 3D a discovery that is canny and uncanny all at once.”

KIMT: “One of the best films I’ve ever seen of any kind.”

“This is the best found footage movie ever made.  It is the best 3D movie I’ve ever seen.  It is not only one of the best horror-comedies I’ve ever seen, it’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen of any kind.  DeGennaro’s script is brilliant.  The actors are excellent.  The camerawork and 3D effects are mesmerizing.  This movie MUST be released in 3,000+ theaters across the country or every single Hollywood studio might as well be swallowed up by gigantic sink holes because if they can’t present something this great to the widest possible audience, there’s no longer any reason for them to exist.”
