The Blair Witch Project
Anyone who has even the slightest trouble with insomnia after seeing a horror movie should stay away from The Blair Witch Project--this film will creep under your skin and stay there for days. Credit for the effectiveness of this mock documentary goes to filmmakers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, who armed three actors (Heather Donahue, Michael Williams, and Josh Leonard) with video equipment, camping supplies, and rough plot outlines. They then let the trio loose into the Maryland woods to improvise and shoot the entire film themselves as the filmmakers attempted to scare the crap out of them. Gimmicky, yes, but it worked--to the wildly successful tune of $130 million at the box office upon its initial release (the budget was a mere $40,000).

For those of you who were under a rock when it first hit the theaters, The Blair Witch Project tracks the doomed quest of three film students shooting a documentary on the Burkittsville, Maryland, legend of the Blair Witch. After filming some local yokels (and providing only scant background on the witch herself), the three, led by Heather (something of a witch herself), head into the woods for some on-location shooting. They're never seen again. What we see is a reconstruction of their "found" footage, edited to make a barely coherent narrative. After losing their way in the forest, whining soon gives way to real terror as the three find themselves stalked by unknown forces that leave piles of rocks outside their campsite and stick-figure art projects in the woods. (As Michael succinctly puts it, "No redneck is this clever!") The masterstroke of the film is that you never actually see what's menacing them; everything is implied, and there's no terror worse than that of the unknown. If you can wade through the tedious arguing--and the shaky, motion-sickness-inducing camerawork--you'll be rewarded with an oppressively sinister atmosphere and one of the most frightening denouements in horror-film history. Even after you take away the monstrous hype, The Blair Witch Project remains a genuine, effective original. --Mark Englehart

Curse of the Blair Witch
Are you wondering just exactly who the Blair Witch was? What the Burkittsville, Maryland, legend was all about? Or what exactly fascinated student filmmaker Heather and what possibly took her, Mike, and Josh from this earth? Get all your background questions answered by Curse of the Blair Witch, a one-stop-shopping "documentary" originally produced for the Sci-Fi Channel as a tie-in marketing tool. Entirely fictionalized, Curse of the Blair Witch focuses both on the past and the present, with copious info on the Blair Witch myth as well as on the disappearance of Heather, Josh, and Mike. As it turns out, the original witch was one Elly Kedward, who was accused in 1785 of taking blood from several children; she was subsequently banished to the harsh winter woods and left for dead. Her grisly and bloody legacy involves missing children, polluted water, disemboweled men, and a serial killer of children who claims to have been haunted by "an old woman ghost." Aside from some ineffective "newsreel" footage of the serial killer, all this intriguing information is presented convincingly and chillingly. Curse may in fact freak you out more than the movie, and it evokes the great, pulpy In Search Of series of the '70s, one of the prime inspirations for filmmakers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez. News clips of the search for Heather, Josh, and Mike lend a vérité atmosphere to the proceedings, but shed little light on their mysterious disappearance or their characters. Basically, it's a tease to go see the movie. Still, The Blair Witch Project provided only ever-so-slight information on the legend that haunted the forest, so you'll want this cleverly constructed mock documentary to supplement your knowledge of the film. --Mark Englehart

Okay, I'm going to be hated for this review but oh well. In my opinion (which is correct of course:) The Blair Witch Project is the best horror flick to be made within the last two decades. The Sixth Sense, The Ring (American version), Finale Destination: These films are not scary. Entertaining maybe, but definitely not scary. The Blair Witch may not make you scream or jump out of your seat with fear, but it gets under your skin. It's one of those films that people should put themselves into and imagine what life would be like for them in a situation such as this. What the Blair Witch lacks in visuals is more then made up for in sheer originality. The Blair Witch Project is a creepy and disturbing film that is far greater then what most people give it credit for. A most excellent film indeed :).

The Blair Witch Project... one of the most stupidest, sensless, and boring movie in the world! Yet it made milloins at the box office; what up with that!
B.W.P. is about three doped up kids who go camping way too friggin' deep in the Maryland woods just to film a cheap documentary about the friggin' blair witch. As a result of that, they end up missing supposedly taken from the face of the earth by the "infamous" witch who, supposedly, again is suspected to live in that area of the woods.
PULLLLEEEZ! If you've already seen this movie, you know what I'm talking about. I mean, what up in the end of the movie when they're in that house? They're like, all running around looking for the moron who kicked the map in the river, then they get to the basement of the house and you all see, like the fat guy in the corner and he looks like he's peeing or something, and then, like, the girl turns around and drops the camera, and then screams for what seems like hours, and the camera's like, still on, and you only see it recording like, the friggin' wall!
What up with that!

Clearly, based on the complaints, most of us watch movies with a passive stance; waiting for loud music and expensive special effects to pull us into the screen. To put yourself into the shoes of any one of those 3 students and stay there would be enough to disturb you and captivate you long after the movie ends. I have been a horror buff for years and this one found a way past the hollywood machine right into my psyche. When you watch it; be still and brave enough to enter the Blair Witch world...It'll bite so good!

I really, really wanted to like this movie. The days of independent drive-in-type movies that were made with a minimal budget but lots of imagination are long gone. True, they were often a hit-and-miss proposition; some were great, some were awful, but they were uniformly fun to watch. Not so now. Hollywood has appropriated the horror movie. Such a movie now is a multi-million dollar extravaganza with slick special effects and a cookie-cutter plot. So, I was hooked by the ad campaign for this movie. It was presented as a triumph of the cinematic outsider using a mimimal budget and a lot of ingenuity to overcome the restrictions of an entrenched Hollywood that all too often caters to the lowest common denominator possible. Unfortunately, this film was a great disappointment to me. The shrill, amateurish acting I could have withstood. After all, a lot of landmark horror movies ("Night of the Living Dead" is one that immediately comes to mind, or "Carnival of Souls") are not noted for the efficacy of its actors. This plot, however, is pretty non-existent. Basically, it consists of unpleasant people staggering lost through the woods and screaming at each other. Hopefully, one of the benefits of this film is that it will inspire other budding movie-makers to scrape together whatever resources they can and give it their best shot at translating their inner vision onto film. It is to be hoped that such films will be more inventive and entertaining and frightening than this.

I caught this moving when it was first released in the theater and I honestly have to admit that it scared me senseless. I actually slept with all the lights on in the house that night and yet I still found myself having nightmares. The interesting thing about this movie for me is that it is a one-time viewing experience. The second time that I watched it; I found that it did absolutely nothing for me and I even started yawning through it. The third time, I was so bored that I ended up not even finishing it. I can't quite put my finger on the reason for it but this movie just does not have any lasting power about it. Quite unlike The Exorcist which I've seen well over twenty times and it still scares the crap out of me every single time. Obviously, I'm not the only one with this problem because recently I was shopping at a popular used bookstore and noticed that they had six used copies of Blair Witch DVD for sale, no other movie had as many multiple copies. As interesting as the original experience was, I just can't justify declaring this film a horror classic simply because it has no staying power. A good one timer but that's about it

I recall the days leading up to the theatrical premiere of "The Blair Witch Project". The online promotion, the cable television specials that proclaimed this as "YES, IT'S THE REAL THING! THEY'VE DISAPPEARED!". You know what? Even after I found out that it was all fake, I wasn't upset -- unlike a lot of people out there.
The story is simple enough and probably everyone and their mother has already seen the movie or heard the details. Three people get lost in the woods attempting to make a documentary on a legendary witch that haunts Maryland. They disappear. Their videos are found several years later and here is what they captured before their untimely demise. It is a horribly clever way to get the public interested. Everyone likes a good true unsolved mystery, especially when it's live and center stage on a gigantic theatre screen.
The actors are decent enough... and some have even parlayed this excursion into a small acting career (you might have seen Heather Donahue in a certain Freddie Prinze Jr. movie, "Boys and Girls" and also in a Sci-Fi network miniseries in 2003). I felt that the true underrated star of the movie was, indeed, one Mary Brown. Though only onscreen for about 2 minutes, she is the most outrageous character in the film and if you see her recounting her experience with the Blair Witch, you may well wet your pants.
Overall, the movie isn't necessarily Oscar-quality... but what is aside from anything Nicole Kidman releases? It isn't a horror movie, but rather one of the better suspense films released in the 1990's. It capitalizes on the fear of the unseen and what lurks in the dark of the forest at night. Is it really the ghost of the Blair Witch? Is it a local resident who followed them with the intent to kill?
