As I came out of "The Blair Witch
Project" the first thought that came to my head was that
these three kids deserved to die. I'm going to give some
spoilers, but you know what, I don't care. Things bugged me
a lot about this movie. Things like where is this magical
river that goes in a circle, at least that must be the case
because our weary travelers, once lost, decided to follow a
river and ended up where they started. Also, who taught
these people how to read a compass? Let's see, it points
north, and if we keep walking east, well, we end up going,
well, seemingly not east. There are countless other things
that bugged me, but in the end what bugged me the most was
that this movie isn't as scary as everyone says, at least
not to me. Just different.
The Blair Witch Project
A Movie Review
"The Blair Witch Project" tells the fictional documentary
of two dudes and a chick who got lost in the woods and only
their film footage was found. It takes us through their
interviewing people about the mythical Blair Witch and then
through their scary adventures in the woods where none of
these city folk should ever go. They get lost, throw away
the map, can't read a compass, follow the circular river,
run through the woods at night without running into a tree,
and the end of the footage shows a dude facing the corner in
the basement (just like the legend says - a lot of people
leaving the theater seemed to miss this part of the movie,
confused why the dude was standing in the corner), screams
ensue, and the camera falls to the ground. And as one dude
sitting next to me said "That's it?" That was it.
I can see why so many critics love this movie. It is
different and had the pre-publicity as being totally scary
and inventive, especially for the $60,000, no wait, $40,000,
no wait, $10,000, no wait, $80,000, no wait, who the hell
really knows how much it cost to make this film. But the
scariest movie ever? I don't think so. For me it was just
I'll give the publicity machine credit for this movie
because once some words got out, well, everyone had to see
it. I don't know who was giving this movie the buzz it got,
but it sure didn't seem to be the likes of the people
leaving the theater I was at.
Different. Yeah. Scary. No. And Trash thinks it was the
chick who killed the boys. Here comes the sequel.
With that I give "The Blair Witch Project" 1 ½ stars
out of 5. I just didn't find it that good.
That's it for this one! I'm The Dude on the Right!!
