“Director Ricky Umberger proves the power of ingenuity and effort by making this entire project on an iPhone for $300. The Fear Footage is an intensely scary anthology horror feature that produces three fantastic short films corralled into a cohesive movie that will have you jumping out of your seat.” Bro Knows Movies

” … this is the kind of film you look for, something unique, memorable and actually scary. The Fear Footage clearly didn’t have a big budget to work with but proves that you don’t need a huge budget to make a great horror movie.” Fitz of Horror

“Despite some questionable acting and a few moments where you quite quite figure out why a certain character has made a certain decision, The Fear Footage is designed to be a rollercoaster of scares and it does it very well!” Hi-Def Ninja

“While the collection of stories are not revolutionary in terms of storytelling, they are slickly produced and have a strong sense of foreboding dread that seeps through almost every frame of the film, amplified by a clever use of sound.” Horror Fan Films

“Running a little over an hour The Fear Footage is exactly what a horror film should be. Lean, fast-paced with effective visuals and excellent use of sound. The one complaint I have is some of the POV shots look grafted in from an early first-person shooter type game.” Voices from the Balcony

“The entire movie is good, but the final third is absolutely amazing – it’s truly twisted and is 100% terrifying. I don’t get to say very often, if ever, that a horror movie – especially a no-budget flick – is scary, but damn, does this manage to make the hair on your arms stand up.” We Love Horror Movies
