i was taking a lot of in-depth indie film classes at the time Blair Witch was released, and we knew pre-release that it was fake through insider channels.
however, the makers of the film and the promoters did a really excellent job of playing on our collective fear and fascination with urban legend.
bits and pieces of the film concepts were borrowed from real life occurances, but what good fiction isn't at least loosely based in reality?
happy watching - and take dramamine if you see it again. it was so-so. i'd rather watch the exorcist again -- it'd be scarier.

i will have to admit to seeing BW twice in the theatre within one week of its release... no, make that three times. we had friends that wanted to go and they kept missing us every time we went. so we were the moral support for those who would be scared.
i enjoyed it -- and yes, i think that BW really brought life into the overly-commercialized market and sort of blazed a trail for other indies to come out into the "mainstream" chains of venues all over the country.
we just need more and more creative people to do more stuff like blair witch in order for the industry to become more interesting again!
