In hopes of persuading filmgoers to avoid the mainstream this week and seek out something unusual instead, a new horror movie is being released entitled Willow Creek. It’s the story of some investigators hot on the trail of Bigfoot, and it features the work of one of the unlikeliest auteur’s around - former stand-up turned filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait. Unfortunately, this first foray into terror is yet another found footage effort filmed with POV shots of shaky backdrops and actors. While reviews have been positive, there’s a good chance that we may have a noble failure on our hands. That’s because there can be a significant struggle required to make a good first person, POV, found footage film. The list of pretenders to the throne—The Poughkeepsie Tapes, The Zombie Diaries, The Last Horror Movie—are many, and for every classic take on the material, there are dozens of desperate wannabes who can’t seem to create compelling characters (Paranormal Activity) or a suspenseful storyline (The Last Exorcism).
