"Of the 1500-odd movies I have seen, this was easily the worst."
This is simply a case of con men duping hordes into giving them money for nothing, and the hordes pretending to be happy with the deal for fear of looking stupid - which is what you'd have to be to enjoy this drivel.This has to have been the worst movie ever made. The only thing scary about The Blair Witch Project is that it was able to turn a profit. The low quality and constantly shifting images (in those scenes which aren't just a dark screen for minutes on end) are actually hard to look at, causing irritation and even dizziness in some viewers.
The movie plays like a home film made by a six year old. There's some convoluted talk of a witch of some sort, and also of a serial killer, neither of whom is evidently what actually menaces the three protagonists in the woods. In the end, the witch seems to have nothing at all to do with the story.
Simply put, this movie is a couple of hours of snot-nosed (literally) kids out hiking and arguing, highlighted by occasional noises in the woods, which of course arouse terror in the protagonists. Rather than finding out what is making the noise, they run pell-mell, as though for their very lives, and cry about how they don't want to die. Frankly, they couldn't die fast enough for me. Anyone who can't follow a stream without going in circles deserves it.If I could, I would rate this a 0. I would also find and destroy all existing copies of this pile of shit. Of course, that would only add to the mystery for the imbiciles who think this movie is a work of genius. In case you don't get it yet - I HATE THIS MOVIE.
