Must See Top 10 Most Shocking Moments In Found Footage Movies!

Found Footage movies have taken the horror genre to new levels and here are the top 10 most shocking moments in Found Footage movies. This list has a good spread featuring films like The Blair Witch Project (1999), Paranormal Activity (2007), and The Poughkeepsie Tapes (2007). One of the most controversial movies from the older times, Cannibal Holocaust (1980), also gets some shine here and the horror anthologies V/H/S (2012) and V/H/S/2 (2013) too. I was thrilled to see [REC] (2007) also made the list too. Watch the video so you can look at the scenes that are referenced. Each film featured on this list is included below the video with movie details and trailers.
