Synopsis Made for $30,000 by two young filmmakers from Florida, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT wowed festival audiences for several months before finding distribution at the 1999 Sundance Festival. It is an ingenious creation which makes effective use of its lack of budget and cast of unknowns. The film is composed entirely of reportedly found footage shot by three missing college students who made a journey to the woods of Western Maryland in 1994 with the purpose of making a documentary about a witch of local legend who is linked to murders and mysterious occurrences spanning 200 years. It begins with footage of the crew leaving their homes and testing their equipment, but before we know it, they are lost deep in the endless woods, with the voices of screaming children piercing the blackness from off in the distance. Things get worse from there. The experience is disorienting and frightening as well as the most rewarding horror film experience to come along in many years, as it wisely chooses to prey on our vulnerable imaginations rather than bombard us with graphic images.No redneck is this creative! - Michael to his fellow travellers upon finding yet another creepy sign in the woods. Do we have any weed? - Heather, to Michael and Josh, during the night of revelry before their trek....I have seen the new face of movie horror and its name is THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT......Works [even] better at home because it's a tale told close-up....Believably unnerving... -- Rating: B+...A nifty example of how to make something out of nothing....A most inventive departure from standard horror fare......Stylistically accomplished....THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT achieves a harrowing sense of subjective dread......Low-budget horror at its resourceful best, in the same innovative league as the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD......Clever....BLAIR PROJECT's fakery is utterly convincing......An extraordinarily effective horror film....The movie is like a celebration of rock-bottom production values...
