BLASTERMIND Mockumentaries

It’s the weekly quiz. How many other SF and fantasy “found footage” and mockumentary films you can recognise? NOW WITH ANSWERS

With Apollo 18 being released today and Troll Hunter being unleashed in the UK next week, the “found footage”/mockumentary film genre is clearly not on the wane in the sci-fantasy sphere. You know the score – shaky cam, newsreel, CCTV footage, faux-realistic acting (more “um”s and “ah”s than any other genre!) and protagonists who keep on filming even when in real life they’d be legging it out of there like their asses were on fire… All in an attempt to make us believe that what we’re watching is real ! Though the giant monsters obviously give the game away in some.

Which, with the predictability of an incoherent interview following a football match, led to this week’s quiz: can you identify the 10 mockumentaries below? One clue: they’re all films except one.

Usual request: please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
