The Blair Witch Project 
Sheer Terror...
3.5/4 stars

The Blair Witch Project is arguably the most influential film in the "found footage" sub genre. It's the classic story about a group of naive (and stupid) college students who venture into the woods in search of the Blair Witch, a mythical entity that haunted Rustin Parr, a child serial killer. The first thirty minutes slowly go by as the group settles in and nothing noteworthy happens. However, when the group finds strange stick figures hanging from the trees the film really starts. To make matters worse, the group's map is carelessly discarded and the rest of the film plays out as spectacle of rage, horror, and desperation as they attempt to find a way back into civilization.

The Blair Witch Project is certainly one of the most frightening and suspenseful horror films. The last forty five minutes are the most terrifying of the film and the sheer human misery experienced by the characters is very intense. If you have a weak stomach, consider passing on this one, as it is rife with unsteady camera work. Otherwise, watch this film. It is an excellent study in horror and is one of the better "found footage" films out there. The only knock on the film is its slow and dull first half hour, but the film's final act is certainly worth the wait.
