Found footage is that girl! So no wonder she seems to be a permanent staple in the horror genre. So, we were very excited to see that a 2023 movie understood the assignment and is now climbing the charts. The #1 thriller on iTunes today is Missing.
In the film, after her mother goes missing, a young woman tries to find her from home, using tools available to her online.

Missing found its way to iTunes early last month. Since then, it has been giving people who missed its brief theatrical run a chance to find out what all of the buzz is about. Check out the trailer below to see if this is the found footage thriller you need this weekend.
We love Storm Reid and Nia Long, so are very happy this movie is killing it on the charts. Here’s hoping we get another movie with that duo that allows them to have more scenes together.
