In lieu of Paranormal Activity beginning its theatrical run, we’ve decided to look back at the 10th anniversary of Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s groundbreaking horror film The Blair Witch Project. If you click here you can read Jeff Otto’s retrospect piece, that talks a bit about its lore and influence on horror filmmaking over the past decade. In the micro-budget film that grossed over $200m at the box office, three film students travel to Maryland to make a student film about a local urban legend… The Blair Witch. The three went into the woods on a two day hike to find the Blair Witch, and never came back. One year later, the students film and video was found in the woods. The footage was compiled and made into a movie. The Blair Witch Project.
