October 9, 2012
A cunningly conceived and crafted exercise in suggestibility and terror.
October 8, 2012
This hyper-realistic mockumentary will scare you witless -- without grossing you out. One of those rare films with the power to haunt long after the final frame.

Somewhere, P. T. Barnum is smiling.
October 17, 2011
Sanchez and Myrick's film knows that what's not seen frightens more easily that what is, and that the imagination's thoughts of what might have happened generally horrify on a deeper level than knowing what did.

This one could be too scary even for your teen.

October 26, 2010
A brilliant marketing campaign, to be sure, but this Z-grade con of a film offers no payoff for audiences looking to be scared.

"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.

January 15, 2008
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.
September 24, 2007
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.
September 24, 2007
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.
September 24, 2007
I could tell you the story -- give away every detail -- and The Blair Witch Project would still freeze your blood.
September 24, 2007
The viewer never glimpses anything more than the shadow of a clever movie.
September 24, 2007
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.
July 23, 2007
The lofty talk in the press of its being a new horror masterpiece is nonsense.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 14, 2007
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.

April 27, 2007
Where is the suspense? Where is the involvement? Where is the identification?
June 24, 2006
The actors never put a foot wrong; the video diary form allows no artifice, so that as terror mounts, the dread is infectious.
May 26, 2006
It's an original and admirable effort.
