Joss Whedon gives his opinion on found footage movies

The Avengers director Joss Whedon has revealed that he is a fan of the found footage craze, as he believes that it takes inspiration from the classic horror style. Joss admitted that he has not seen many of the found footage movies but does believe that they do a great job.
Whedon explained, “I haven't seen a lot of them. My general response is one of extreme pleasure, because found footage is based on the classic horror—dread, the thing you almost see—about waiting. The whole torture porn thing is not actually horror, it's something else entirely.”
He added, “I watched the Friday the 13th remake. There is an expendable group of teens, bad people, they establish them, and Jason comes and kills them all. Then they roll the opening credits... they've made it a Bond film. I was so appalled. That's not horror. Found footage is a step backwards in the right direction to classic horror.”
Joss Whedon co wrote and produced the horror movie The Cabin in the Woods, which is directed by Drew Goddard and stars Chris Hemsworth. The Cabin in the Woods was filmed over two years ago but has been held up with its released. However, The Cabin in the Woods is finally set to be released in both the US and the UK on April 13.
