Synopsis: Three film students travel to Maryland to make a student film about a local urban legend, The Blair Witch.  The three went out into the woods on a two day hike, and never came back. One year later, their video footage was found. . .


My Review: It was kind of neat how the creators of this film wanted everyone to believe that the events that took place in this film really happened.  However, it confused many people.


I went to the theater believing that this was supposed to be the best horror film. Why not, the reviews were pretty good for it, they called it the scariest movie around. However, when I walked out of the movie theater, I was a little confused, and very dissatisfied.


I felt the entire film was way too drawn out, and we never got to see anything, or hear anything that the people in the film claimed to hear and see. Its one thing to keep it a mystery and not show you what they are seeing, but its another to not be able to hear what they think they are hearing. The movie seemed very dragged out. Events took forever to happen.  The only part that could have been creepy to people, I know it wasn't for me, is the ending. 


I would have liked to see what happened with the investigation into their dissapperiances, that would have been kind of neat to watch. 


Over all, I hated the film, and wouldn't watch it ever again.
