The Blair Witch Project

The original found footage horror that took the world by storm in 1999, mainly because many believed the footage was actually real. The story follows three film students who take to the woods with video cameras in order to document the local legend of 'The Blair Witch'.

Blair Witch is hard to watch. Not because what unfolds on screen is particularly horrifying; rather it’s literally hard to watch, as copious amounts of blurry handheld footage and bright lights shone directly into the camera prove to be an endurance test for the eyeballs.

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.

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

A nifty example of how to make something out of nothing.

I have seen the new face of movie horror and its name is The Blair Witch Project, a groundbreaker in fright that reinvents scary for the new millennium.
