Blair Witch Project Review:
Of the many horror films I’ve seen, BWP is the one that has scared me the most, more than possibly the Shining, Psycho and Silence of the Lambs; even though I like those movies more. BWP instantly has a claustrophobic atmosphere, with a constant feeling that something bad is about to happen. I’m not a fan of ‘Founded Footage’ but the way it’s done here works well. It adds to the claustrophobia and tension. And the actors here do a really good job; even though we don’t really get to see their faces, there’s a lot of emotion and power coming from their inflections.
And what I love also is the mystery, the ambiguity, the fact that the movie is constantly quiet and has this long, yet intense build up to something huge. Granted people may get annoyed by the lack of climax, but I actually thought it worked, because my favourite horror movies are ones that are, as I stated, mysterious and ambiguous. It’s why I love the Xenomorph in Alien so much; there’s so many questions behind it that don’t get answered in the movie, and it’s the same thing here. And with what we got with the mysterious as hell Blair Witch, i can say, it remains one of my favourite movie villains.
Overall, I wouldn’t say it’s a classic, but the stuff that’s good is really damn good! Definitely check it out and see for yourself.
