Plot : Three film students travel to Maryland to make a student film about a local urban legend… The Blair Witch. The three went into the woods on a two day hike to find the Blair Witch, and never came back. One year later, the students film and video was found in the woods. The footage was compiled and made into a movie… “The Blair Witch Project.”
Review : This was a decent film that had it’s moments. Too be completely honest there were times while I was watching this movie that I was bored out of my mind. The story was okay, I liked how they made the movie seem like it was actual footage, it kind of makes the viewer feel like they are in the movie and dealing with what the characters are going through. The film had some enjoyable moments, but it was also just really upsetting that we never even see the witch in the film. The acting wasn’t the greatest it was a decent performance from the cast, all around was decent. Honestly, there were moments when the cast members were just annoying, like they seriously annoyed me in some parts of the film. Although, sometimes the movie makes you connect with the cast and understand what they’re going through and that part was nice.
Now the only thing that I can say about this movie was that towards the ending it actually did start to get scary. It wasn’t all that scary the whole time but the film I believe can creep you out. There was also mystery involved and suspense, the film makes you wonder whose doing this, even though you know it’s the witch you still want to actually see her. It also does a good job at really making you fear for these characters lives, now I don’t know if the kids wound up dying or not, we assume that they die after watching the ending but I’m still not sure if they actually died or not. It was a very scary and creepy setting, just look at this.Overall this was a decent film and thought that there were some parts that were enjoyable in the film, but the film also did bore me. The story and acting weren’t the greatest, but they were okay. This movie did deliver some scares, but not really, it’s hard to explain but it can creep you out. The film had a good amount of suspense, mystery, and scares to make this a decent film. I am very angry that we didn’t get to see the witch at all though, I guess the directors just felt it would work for the movie and make the movie scarier, or maybe give it a more mysterious vibe. I don’t know, all I know was I didn’t like that. If you haven’t seen this movie I still think you should watch it. I wasn’t very fond of it, but I know people that loved the movie and people that hated it. So you never know you might actually like it, the movie just wasn’t for me. I will say this though, you won’t catch me camping in the woods.
I give this movie a 6.5/10
