The Blair Witch Project

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sánchez
1999 / 81min / DCP

The concept of the “found footage” horror movie predates The Blair Witch Project, but Myrick and Sánchez’s shoestring supernatural thriller about a trio of student filmmakers looking for the facts behind a local legend in the scrubby forests of western Maryland was the popular phenomenon that spawned flocks of imitators. The swirling rumors accompanying its release that the events it depicts were actually true helped to sell tickets, but today, after scores of imitations, it still impresses in the way it uses lo-fi video aesthetics and a limited POV to conjure up a sense of slow-mounting dread.

Please note: the screening on Wednesday, January 25th will be on DCP.
