Print this article Thanks to films like "The Blair Witch Project" and "Cloverfield," found footage movies have become one of the most popular titles in recent years. The trend continued in 2012 with the release of the sci-fi movie "Chronicle," which comes to DVD May 15.
The movie centers around footage being filmed by Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan). After leaving a party where his constant filming was bothering people, Andrew runs into his classmate Steve (Michael B. Jordan), who convinces him to come video something strange he and some others have found in the woods nearby.
Steve, Andrew and their other friend Matt enter a mysterious hole, when suddenly they run into a glowing blue object. The film cuts out after a while, but returns weeks later when the three friends began experiencing telekinetic powers. As they begin grappling with their newfound ability, the camera is rolling.
"Chronicle" earned praise for being one of the more unique sci-fi movies in recent memory, and fans may want to check out similar titles including Best Picture nominee "District 9" and the biological thriller "Splice."
