The Blair Witch Project Missed the Witch

 MOVIE REVIEW THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT:  After watching "Paranormal Activity" we were intrigued to watch its predecessor movie who utilized the same concept, "The Blair Witch Project."  Like Paranormal Activity it started out slow and is filmed on a documentary style.  It was exciting at first but then it turned out to be a total disappointment.

Except for some weird stories and a lot of screaming there was nothing to fear about nor to be puzzled about in this movie.  It was a total dismay.  There was no witch to be seen and there was no blood and gore nor was there any suspense.  I admit that at first there is but as the story dragged on you will surely be cursing the film.

If you want to know why I said this movie was lame then you have to really watch it. There are various links in megavideo for this movie and am sure upon finishing it you would agree.

There was no clear depth on who is getting the victims, how the video was found and nor was there any excitement and thrill to the disappearance of the team.

The movie was also frequented by black outs which makes what happening incomprehensible. Perhaps some was done in order to make it as realistic as possible as a documentary done by real people but for me it was useless.
