I was recommended Lake Mungo (2008) by one of my favorite horror podcasters. They had stated that the film had received a recent resurgence in popularity since its original release and that it has since become a cult classic amongst found footage horror fans.
Although, I really enjoyed certain elements of this movie, I can't say that it particularly scared me...
I feel like Lake Mungo (2008) had the tools to be quite chilling, but certain plot choices took away from the frightening atmosphere the movie started to build during the first half of the film.
Overall, I'd say it's worth checking out, but I certainly wont be boasting it as a "must watch" despite it's high notoriety within the horror community.
