The soundtrack for a film with no music? Yes, it's true. Josh's Blair Witch Mix
takes the high concept of "music inspired by the film" to new extremes: this is the mix tape found in Josh's car on the fateful night the "documentary" was filmed. Whatever the case, Josh's
is filled with the doom-and-gloom sounds of vintage goth and industrial tracks and the occasional "scared silly" movie sound bites. It's a strong compilation with classic tunes by Lydia Lunch
, the Creatures
, Front Line Assembly
, and others. The included enhanced CD video snippet contains footage not found in the actual film. Ironic: one thing that makes The Blair Witch Project
so believable is the fact that it lacks the typical clichéd horror-movie sound effects. Luckily, this "soundtrack" is far from clichéd and every bit as creative as its movie counterpart. The only thing creepier would be if Josh had been listening to a tape of smooth jazz.... --Jason Verlinde
