Yet another bagain priced Halloween film is "The Possession of Michael King". This one has a decidedly FFL flair to it especially with the chatter here over the last couple of days. Michael King is an atheist who decides to make a homemade documentary to debunk religion and spirituality. So he visits some priests and spiritualists. Of course things go awry in the process of his investigation. This film is rated "not for Buck" and probably a lot of the folks here but I thought it was quite good for the genre. Here's the trailer:

After watching a few "Willow Creek" Q&A from film festivals with Bobcat Goldthwait which were very fascinating but even the film geeks did not ask what camera was used I found a press release for the film that said a consumer grade Canon camera was used. I suspect a Vixia model. I love guerrilla film making. Of course nobody uses film anymore, just memory cards.

I've been hearing about Bobcat Goldthwait's "Willow Creek" for some
time. It's a film about a couple who go to Sasquatch country in search
of Big Foot and film their search. it's a "found footage" film so be
ready for plenty of "shaky cam." I'm still trying to find what it was
shot on because I think Bobcat went all authentic and even used a
consumer cam rather than making Red camera footage look like that in post.

The film has been "in theaters" for month thoughs I don't know exactly
what "theaters" that would be and priced streaming appropriately ($7).
Thus I was pleased to discover that Amazon has it for 99 cents and
rented it to watch last night. I found the film entertaining though it
has been very controversial in the film community. Probably tame enough
for most folks here except for those who hate the "found footage" genre.

After watching you might enjoy this clip with Bobcat and the two principals.
