The review of this Movie prepared by Jim

The surprise indie hit of 1999, filmed by the three male actors and one actress on their own, mostly improvising from a 35-page outline. The film purports to be the remains of a documentary by student filmmakers after they went into the woods of Maryland to investigate a fabled witch, and disappeared. It features much hand-held camera work (not a few theatergoers reported nausea and motion sickness). "Blair Witch" is a combination of one of the most interesting and yet boring films I have ever seen: interesting from a plotting and acting perspective ("oh, that was nicely done ... how are they going to handle this?") and boring as a piece of entertainment because pretty much nothing happens except in the minds of the characters, who are not interesting to begin with. Perhaps if one did not know the truth behind the premise in advance the film would be more gripping, but I felt one step disengaged from it and never got caught up in the story.

Three film school students go into the woods of Maryland to solve the mystery of the Blair Witch. Well, they disappear, leaving this document material behind them. Demands concentration, but if you have some, you'll find it's a very rewarding film.
