Found footage cannot run its course until we get a meta film where there is found footage inside a found footage film.

Found footage rom-com?  ;D

I guess that movie would be 'The Virginity Hit'.

The rom-com joke was good, but maybe for the 'genre' to survive it needs to get away from the monster/horror area and into comedy or drama.

Why? I suppose it goes back to my comment about fresh ideas. I would agree it does not have to, to survive, but a different genre might be the way to inject fresh ideas. By survive I mean produce films that are not just b-grade straight to video trash that only a few see.
