Well, I Watched ‘The Blair Witch Project’

As I have told you all many times before, I’m not a horror fan. But for the past couple of years every October I make sure to watch Halloween and a new scary movie of my choice. This year it was The Blair Witch Project.

I’ve heard about this movie. It’s the best documentary-style horror classic and it kind of was brilliantly made for its time. What I am relieved to say is that the film was terrifying but not to terrifying.

This is one of those films that builds the horror thanks to simply imagination. Every time I thought the story was going to go one way it veered on another path and then, at its most terrifying, it ended. I was both thankful that the film didn’t leave me scarred or unable to go to sleep with the lights off and I was appreciative of the film’s decision to end the way it did. It felt more realistic and honestly, the film did its job. It scared me and that’s what horror movies are supposed to do.

I’ll give it 89 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. Happy Halloween weekend.

One thought on “Well, I Watched ‘The Blair Witch Project’”

  1. Yeah. Blair Witch was an interesting movie, but the hype campaign that left the lines blurred as to whether or not this was authentic footage from missing people or a fictional movie made to look like it. I saw it once. It was ok. No great desire to see it again, but would consider doing so for love or money or abject boredom.
