NEW YORK, New York – September 4, 2017 – The founders of FoundFootageCritic.com and WickedHorror.com have announced the formation of POV Horror LLC, a horror film distribution and production company focusing on found footage horror films. The company is celebrating its launch with the release of the first Found Footage Horror Movie VOD Channel now available on ROKU devices in supported countries worldwide.

One such title is Encounters, a found footage alien invasion thriller from Denmark, directed by Anders Bukh. POV Horror co-founder Michael Steinberg adds, “Encounters has a great story and amazing visual effects that rival some of the best found footage films out there. We want to raise awareness of indie films such as Encounters. This is but one of many found footage films slated for our fall catalog that deserve to be seen by the world.”

Our database includes over 650 found footage titles, and fans are constantly asking ‘where can I see this film or that.’ That’s when we conceived of the idea of offering the global fan community a single place to see as many found footage films as we could pull together. We encourage owners of feature length found footage films to reach out to us with titles they would like added to our catalog. We can offer non-exclusive distribution agreements for films that meet our criteria.”
