The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project

Directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez • 1999 • United States
Starring Rei Hance, Michael C. Williams, Joshua Leonard

Twenty-five years after its release, the microbudget milestone that ushered in a new era of indie horror retains its power to terrify. Innovatively presented as recovered footage shot by a trio of student filmmakers, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT follows its makers as they venture into the Maryland woods to investigate the titular local legend . . . never to be seen alive again. With its raw shaky-cam aesthetic, grainy nighttime imagery, and visceral sound design, the original found-footage sensation brilliantly exploits our deepest fears of the dark.
