The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project: Friday, July 30, 1999

Hey, gang, I just came back from seeing The Blair Witch Project (BWP), and I'm still suffering from motion sickness. Why? Because the entire movie is shot using hand-held camcorders that shake, rattle and roll for the entire length of the movie. I can't believe this movie made $28 million. This movie inspired me to get a couple of camcorders and film my brother and I playing in the backyard with my father under a blanket. I bet the critics, and the fools at canne and sundance would call my home video art too.

BWP is a bad movie. First of all, it's really boring most of the times and when any tension is building the screen is engulf in total darkness. Now, I know the movie was shot in amateur style to convey the feeling of a documentary, but the only thing they really capture of a documentary feel is the bore to death sensation of most documentaries. And what about all the hype saying  BWP is one of the scares movies ever make. I heard stories about people screaming, losing sleep, or being deeply disturbed by BPM. What? That has to be bull! What’s wrong with you people? Am I the only real man left?
