BLAIRWITCH PROJECT - A DOSSER
THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE FILM OR IF YOU HAVE ANY DESIRE TO READ ABOUT ANY MYTHOLOGY. IT GOES INTO DETAIL ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION OF THE THREE MISSING STUDENTS. IT'S, IN A WAY, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT PART TWO. WHEN I PICKED UP THE BOOK I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Movie? Book? What's being discussed?
Well, I have to say that for a book review, there are a lot of movie reviews. But I guess the two go hand and hand, making the Blair Witch Project a work of art, and yes, genius. Because, aside from all the hype, it causes a moment of belief. A thought winking into your head saying 'what if this is really true?'. The book expounds on the myth presented in the movie, making it much more believable. I am disappointed that the media chose to point out that there is no Blair Witch myth nor did anything happen up in Maryland. It somewhat shattered that feeling of anxiety when watching the movie, that sure it looks real, but it's really not. BUT, the film itself is both marvelous in storytelling and by film standards. Most bad reviews I read are from people who refused to suspend belief, to be engrossed in the movie, and therefore feel the fright eminating from the screen. The film's intent is lost on those people, for the true purpose of the film was to touch on the very core of fear in people: the unknown. The howls in the night, the children laughing and crying, the mysterious, unknown objects that serve a purpose that has not been uncovered. These factors play upon the basic's of human fear, the unknown, the mysterious, something lurking in the dark just beyond sight, but not beyond sound....casting an aura of malicious intent that you are powerless to defend against. It's almost straight Lovecraftian........and it scared the bejeezus out of me!!! Most bad reviews I read say 'The ending made no sense. Why is he in a corner? Why didn't he yell to Heather?' Well, my skeptical little friends, did you catch the explanations at the beginning? Or were you waiting for the blood? Would you warn your friend, after being grabbed in the dark by the thing that is stalking you throughout the night? Would you be able to move at all? I truely believe this movie is a masterpiece. The storytelling is on the level of Lovecraft, the film producing/directing/etc on the level of Hitchcock...... a new era for horrors, without full chested Teens getting hacked to bits. And you can take that, and shove it up your...nose you cynics! Heh!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
