The first teaser trailer has been released for Found Footage 3D, which is produced by Kim Henkel, co-writer and producer of the 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
The movie aims to offer a unique spin on the tired found footage sub-genre (tired for some, anyway—I’m always down for a found footage flick), just as movies like Scream and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (which also uses a documentary-style similar to found footage) did for the slasher sub-genre.

Mark lives in the shadow of his overbearing older brother, Derek, and has always wanted what his brother seems to have: a career in the movies and the love of a beautiful woman. So when Derek asks Mark to document the creation of his latest low-budget horror production, Mark jumps at the opportunity.
The movie, Spectre of Death, is being shot in the “found footage” style of Paranormal Activity and stars Derek himself and his estranged wife, Amy, in the art-imitates-life story of a couple whose relationship is slowly deteriorating. Over the objections of his director, Derek has decided to make Spectre of Death the “first 3D found-footage horror film” and has hired his younger brother to shoot the first 3D behind-the-scenes documentary.
Right from the start, the shoot is plagued with trouble. Derek and Amy can’t seem to get along long enough to shoot a scene together. It doesn’t help that Derek is constantly flirting with the cute production assistant. For solace, Amy turns to Mark, whose own love/hate relationship with the charming but tyrannical Derek makes him the only person who truly understands her.
Things take a much more sinister turn when the fictional entity they’ve created for their film shows up in Mark’s behind-the-scenes footage. Frightening accidents begin to plague the shoot. The footage Mark is shooting grows stranger and more ominous. When an act of unexpected and ferocious violence finally tears down the wall between fiction and reality, Mark must find a way to contain the evil presence and save Amy before it is too late.
Found Footage 3D Is written, directed, and produced by Steven DeGennaro. It stars Carter Roy, Alena von Stroheim, Chris O’Brien, Tom Saporito, Scott Allen Perry, Jessica Perrin, and Scott Weinberg.
The movie makes its world premiere on August 20th at the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival, and the international premiere will be on August 29th in London at FrightFest.
Found Footage 3D tells the story of a group of filmmakers who set out to make “the first 3D found-footage horror film”, but find themselves in a found-footage horror film when the evil entity from their movie escapes into their behind-the-scenes footage.
As the first found footage movie shot natively in 3D, FF3D pushes the boundaries of the medium and creates something truly unique. It does things that no found footage movie or 3D movie has ever been able to do before.
