½ June 15, 2018 this the greatest movie ever? No. But was it the scariest freakin' movie in the world when it first came out and everyone was saying it was real (whether or not you want to admit you believed it)? Hell yeah! It may not stand up over multiple watchings, but almost guaranteed, the first time someone watches this movie, at night with the lights off, and, God forbid, alone like I the last scene they'll be hinding under the sofa!

This pickture reminds me of something my son, Becket made with my wife in our field before she ran waay with the photography mahcine. Now, the directer madum could have had the which make an apperance, but this movie was even poorer than me to be so boring1 I was completly an utterly disapointed by this act of cinematic mutiny by anitclimax.

A chilling and disturbing film that launched the Found Footage genre. With great atmosphere, natural performances, and a claustrophobic tension that seems to increase throughout the entire duration, this is the genre at its apex.

The story is just stupid (really, somebody was that stupid to get rid of the map in a forest because... fuck you), the characters are just annoying and the "I'm filming an amateur video" never really works because in some scenes is just an awkward distraction (like: are you seriously filming during an argue where everyone is losing their minds, really?)... and when it finally could have started getting creepy... IT ENDS!

The most infuriatingly disappointing movie of all time. Speaking of time, do not waste yours.

I think is one of the few horror movie that really scared me. I don't mean the classical "AAAAAHHHH" in the middle of a quite scene kind of scared. I mean the "is someone following me" kind, after leaving the cinema! I kinda can guess why younger generations won't like it, but for me is still one of the best horrors ever made.

not scary at all, the whole film was boring from start to finish and one of the biggest load of crap i have ever scene

watching people jump at the sound of twigs breaking for a full length film is not a good horror movie or movie in general.

Too surreal, even for me the horror genre lover..

Non sono mai stato un grande fan di questo genere di film, soprattutto perché è un modo facile e conveniente per portare soldi alle case di produzione, con il minor sforzo possibile. In questo caso, però, la fortunata coppia di registi ha l'assoluta esclusiva, visto che sono stati i primi ad introdurre questo particolare sottogenere dell'horror e non solo. Il film riesce a funzionare, trasmette una buona dose di angoscia grazie alle ottime interpretazioni e ovviamente allo stile unico del film. Niente di più e niente di meno.

the most overrated film in the world of cinema, the film has a good plot and it is very interesting, the end is very good, it creates tension, the first 50 minutes are very boring and desperate, this is not even a horror movie, but Well it's a psychological thriller, it's just a clumsy movie and that's it.

Further proving that what we don't see can be just as terrifying, if not even more than what we do see, The Blair Witch Project is a mostly terrifying and unique entry into the horror genre. The performances are very realistic and solid, for the most part. Channeling pure terror and fear into their roles, the actors perfectly get across and convey the horror of what's going on around them. This can be a detriment to the film as much as it is a good thing, mostly down to the fact that although their acting is rather convincing and appropriate given the subject matter, it can also feel a bit over the top and relentlessly obnoxious, especially since it can feel as if it's just a bunch of panicking and screaming. Concerning the mythology surrounding the Blair Witch project, the film does an interesting job exploring the legend while establishing a solid foundation to build upon as the film goes on. It doesn't delve too much into this fact though, however the film benefits from a very strong build up as events get worse and worse, steadily before the insane ending. It's hard to tell what's going to happen at any given time and the film maintains this feeling throughout. Benefiting from strong direction, Myrick successfully manages to build a haunting and spooky atmosphere while including some subtle, yet intriguing hints at the supernatural events going on. The use of found footage is very original and creative, lending the film a more authentic and realistic feel that in turn, makes the film even more terrifying but I can also work on the lesser side as well. It works mainly because since it's told through the use of camera, we don't actually get to see anything that's going on, and yet the film still manages to be as scary as it wants to be thanks to some crackling sound effects and the film's claustrophobic tone. It's not all that scary though even with its plethora of creativity and the camera's tendency to blur and move around so often can give the impressions of fright as much as it can give you the impression that there's nothing really going on. The Blair Witch Project is a crative and unique horror film that still proves, even with its flaws that there are some things out there that are better left unseen. -
