Found Footage Flick The Poughkeepsie Tapes Found on DIRECTV

2008. That's when we first reviewed the Dowdle Brothers' found footage film The Poughkeepsie Tapes (review). Years have passed, and no one has since seen hide nor hair of the movie... until now, that is.

Legendary Lowers the Budget for As Above, So Below

The found footage subgenre continues to press on despite many saying that it's in its death throes. Next on tap for you cats who are always on the lookout for some cinéma vérité flavored goodness comes the first word on As Above, So Below.

Shyamalan, Dowdles & Devils!

Seeing as how the John Dowdle directed Quarantine (review) and M. Night Shyamalan's tale of deadly trees both failed to impress many of us, there's a good chance that combining the power of both filmmakers may produce something semi-quasi-somewhat amusing. Well, we're hoping, at least.

First Shutter & Quarantine Stills

Seriously now, why is it that whenever studios release pics from their horror titles that they’re always the most boring, tell-you-nothing images they can find? I mean, if you have a movie with some ghosts and gore, at least show them off!

First Casting for Quarantine!

The brothers behind The Poughkeepsie Tapes are prepping their remake of Spanish horror film REC, now called Quarantine here in the States, and casting is in full force.
