5 Truly terrifyingNexus6 | 03/05/2007 | See all Nexus6's reviews (9)The Blair Witch Project (TBWP) reminds me a lot of Marmite - you either love it or you hate it. I am of the former category (although I'm not overly fond of Marmite....)Three film students set out to make a film on a local urban legend, the Blair Witch. However, they manage to get themselves hopelessly lost in the woods and are never seen again. One year later, their tape is found. What it shows is a truly terrifying series of events that occurred in the woods on that fateful outing.TBWP was made on a comparatively miniscule budget and it has an amateur feel to it, with the handheld camera and jerky movements throughout. This serves to reinforce the fact that the three youths were just film students out to make a scary documentary. And TBWP is really quite scary in parts; the night scene where they are lost in the middle of nowhere, huddled together in a tent, is particularly frightening. Especially when they begin to hear the laughter of children....Opinion on TBWP is divided and I can understand why some people will take an instant dislike to this film. But I think it tackles fairly unoriginal subject matter in a highly original and gripping way. The result is a terrifying movie that will have you hiding behind a cushion all the way to the heart stopping finale. Highly recommended.
