#27 – The Blair Witch Project

 

Click the picture to read my review of The Blair Witch Project @ Movie-Vault.com!

 

Reason Why – For those who missed out the first time around The Blair Witch Project was a phenomenon. Taking the internet by storm was the is-it-real story of three amateur student filmmakers who investigate the legend of the Blair witch. After interviewing some of the townspeople about the legend the take off into the woods to investigate further. There they find that the woods can be creepy themselves with mysterious happenings, sticks and rocks piling up into haunting formations. The three soon find themselves hopelessly lost and even using a compass the woods seems intent on not allowing them escape.

Does it hold up – Yes and no. Yes, it can still scare given the right moment in viewing it, but it is not the movie it was back when it was new. Time has hurt the film somewhat.
