The Blair Witch Project Reviews

"Blair Witch" should go down in history as proof that it doesn't take a big budget to make a great movie, in fact it may not even take a budget at all.

Dark Horizons

This is a highly original and well-made film which is one of the best of the year, and a welcome change from the recent slasher genre which most horror films seem to be classified as these days.

It is a horror film that shows nothing -- no blood, no violence -- explains nothing, and seems to mean nothing, but scares you and keeps scaring you long after it is over.

Heather's shaky video work can induce motion sickness -- it looks like combat footage as she bolts through the woods -- but just try turning away.

I could tell you the story -- give away every detail -- and The Blair Witch Project would still freeze your blood.

The viewer never glimpses anything more than the shadow of a clever movie.

What gives the film much of its force and its mounting sense of queasy uncertainty is its narrative method, which ensures that we know no more about the proceedings than the characters do.

The lofty talk in the press of its being a new horror masterpiece is nonsense.

The three actors manage not only to capture some beautiful footage but also to spout believable and consistent dialog without digressing into the standard Scream pop culture references.

Where is the suspense? Where is the involvement? Where is the identification?

The actors never put a foot wrong; the video diary form allows no artifice, so that as terror mounts, the dread is infectious.

If you can handle its unconventional approach, you won't feel as if you're seeing a film so much as witnessing a living nightmare.

They just want to scare us by confusing us, disorienting us, and by playing a simple trick on our inner ear.

I can readily understand why some people, more willing than I to suspend their disbelief, would be frightened out of their wits by the goings on.

Gorehounds and smirking fans of the nudge-nudge, wink-wink school of self-referential horror may be disappointed, but that's their loss.
