You may be right that there were more songs or something. It definitely felt like they were singing every two seconds.

that's exactly how it felt.

Unsure as to how I've managed to avoid watching it until now, but I just saw The Blair Witch Project for the first time last night, at least in its entirety... and it scared the living **** out of me! Or should I say, the ending scared the **** out of me, up until that point I found everything to be pretty mildly frightening. Mostly, I was just annoyed with the bickering between characters, the female in particular. She was just unbearable, and not likable in the slightest sense. Anyways, I have a pretty low tolerance for the horror genre, so the point while they were in the house and all the anticipation that was built around the ending REALLY got to me. Freaked me the hell out. Words cannot describe. I'm sure there are people out there that completely despise this film and all the ****ty 'found footage' films that have followed in its footsteps, but it certainly worked on me.

I like The Blair Witch Project. But I find it is a one time scare deal, once you know the twists and what happens, it loses impact. So the replay value is low on it to me. But yeah, it scared me the first time I saw it. I remember having to pause it and take a break at the part where they are in the tent and hear footsteps. I was having a panic attack I thought. Very few films have gave me that kind of feeling.

It is a good film, even though it loses much of its impact on the small screen. It is meant to be seen on the big screen. I remember reading reports of it causing people to experience motion sickness and screw with them more. Mainly cause on the big screen, the image takes up your whole field of vision, and immerses you more into it. Do not get that on a small screen, it loses much of that aspect.

But yeah, for what that film was, it did a great job at what it was going for. Out of all the found footage films I have seen, it is second only to Cannibal Holocaust.

However I wish I had the 90 minutes of my life back spent watching Blair Witch 2.

I've been in those woods, it's kinda freaky that the movie was filmed so close to me. The only thing people know about Maryland is Old Bay, Crabs, Blair Witch Project, Beach House, and Phillip Glass.

And The Wire, of course.

I also saw Blair Witch Project in the theater and it was pretty effective. Back then (before the multitude of found footage films) you could still fool yourself into thinking that it was real. The audience was enraptured and the final scene stayed with me for quite a while. There were audible gasps in the theater, and they were honest. It was a fun time for horror.

After watch The Blair Witch Project, I'm hesitant to ever go hiking again, let alone in the woods the movie was filmed in.

Although I didn't get to see it in theaters, I totally believe some people had a hard time watching it, even to the point of getting sick. As much as the camera moves around, I found it a bit challenging to watch, even on the small screen. I wouldn't watch it again, the whole terror aspect comes from not knowing what you're going to see, and what you don't get to see. It wouldn't be as good a film if you actually got to see the Witch, or what actually happens after the filming ends.

I totally forgot about the motion sickness thing but now I remember reading about that, and thinking it was pretty silly. I guess I can see somebody who had motion sickness + high anxiety having to vomit, but I'm sure it didn't happen often. I would have been pretty pissed off if somebody sitting next to me threw up during the film because that would have been a big distraction from an otherwise great experience.

I've never really gotten nauseous from watching a film like Blair Witch, but it is a thing that happens to some, apparently. Trying to read on a long car ride, that'll do it though. I just found it hard to keep my eyes trained on the film.. like a kind of disorienting effect.

Sort of off-topic but I suffered from motion sickness as a child really badly. If I was in a car for more than 30 minutes, I was definitely going to puke no matter what I did during the ride. I guess I grew out of it but it's probably part of why I always insist on driving as far as i'm able. Luckily handheld video shots never bothered me.
