I've watched the movie after reading the historical context and not knowing that this movie was a fake documentary. So, the entire time, I was wondering to myself if this film is real (it turned out not to be). However, absent perfect information, I had to fill my curiosity with imagination watching the film.
Especially in the time and context at which it was released- the idea of an urban legend turning out to be, not only horrifyingly real, but incredibly and mind-bendingly powerful really adds to the thrilling horror that is this piece.
It's malevolent folktale-turned-real Witch never being shown on screen, but still ever-present in the minds of the characters and viewers creates such a psychologically thrilling mood and atmosphere that, in my mind, set a precedent for the "Found footage" film style that it created.
This movie was all the rage when it first came out. Many had no idea that this movie was actually a fictional story filmed so that it would look real. Some would say that when all the hype is taken away, this movie isn't good. I beg to differ.
I pretty sure that when I went to the theater to see this film when it first came out that I already knew it wasn't real footage of three teens being stalked by the Blair Witch. So I was simply viewing the movie for what it was - a realistic depiction of a fictional story. It was done quite well. After viewing it on DVD, I still say it packs a punch, especially if you watch it late at night alone in the dark by yourself (with the sound turned up).
This movie is unjustly maligned by a lot of people, and deserves more credit than it has received over the years. It seems like every movie done in a similar style, such as "Diary of the Dead" and "Cloverfield," is referred to as being filmed "Blair Witch style." That has to count for something. "The Blair Witch Project" set the standard for making films with a "hand-held camera" style that tell fictional stories portrayed as non-fiction.
This movie is scary when taken simply for what it is.
