Glad to hear it. I loved the BWP and found it original and scary. Interesting that most horror fans either really like it or really hate it (mostly the latter, I think).SuFiKitten77 said:
Oddly enough though .. I did enjoy the Blair Witch Project. Might of been how they did it where it really did seem like a documentary. Oh well .. to each there own
This was past that, they made this ****ing thing into an event. More like a circus. And idiots in drones bought into this stupid movie. From all the word of mouth, to the groups of people who went looking for the actual locations the film shot at, to the cults of people who thought the movie was more than just real. This movie did inspire a few very funny TV spots for the MTV 1999 Movie Awards with Chris Rock and Janeanne Garofalo screaming at each other about a candy bar. That's probably the film's greatest contribution, to entertainment. Otherwise, it's a menace.Zombie-F said:Thingit, doesn't EVERY horror movie claim to be the scariest one ever? It's a part of marketing a horror movie. They all do it to some extent (i.e. "The scariest horror film since..." "the most horrifying film in the past decade..." "so scary you'll..."). It makes much better business sense to say it's the scariest than to say "Come see the most mediocre horror film of the past decade".
Sounds like a pretty powerful little piece of work to me. As someone who would love to be an independent filmmaker, this is inspiring.Doctorthingit said:...they made this ****ing thing into an event.

What can I say? I am five years old at heart.. and mind.Sinister said:No, it isn't even in the same class as the Karloff classic. As far as why people go on about it since '99, is because someone brings it up as being one of the scariest movies of all-time, when the only scary thing about it is that Horror patrons actually spent money to watch and in some extreme cases, buy this overly dull piece of celluloid trash. People get riled that someone can actually give credit where credit isn't due. This damn thing isn't scary in the least. Maybe to your average 5 year-old it might be...!
