This past weekend, I was given the opportunity to view an indie film titled “Found Footage 3D”.

The newest one nicely ties all of the seasons (both past and whatever this one will presently be) and makes you remember the odd and disturbing routes the shown has gone. All of this leaves us with our heads scratching and asking the same question, what comes next?

Here are 5 prime examples of Howard Philip Lovecrafts influence on cinema…
