Well, slap me silly and call me a bitch.This is, by far, the best movie of the year. It hast he best acting I have ever seen in any movie in the history of anything and if Heather Donahue doesn't win Best Actress at the Academy Awards, there is something seriously wrong with this fucking country.
To anyone who says this movie isn't good or scary... you are a fucking idiot. It starts out happily enough with three people with high hopes excited about making a student film about the Blair Witch. From there, they just descend into madness and are all at each others throats, showing basic human emotions when put in a frightening situation. I don't want to go too in depth, so as to not spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen the movie.
The whole movie is shot with a video camera from the point of view of whomever is holding the camera at the time, usually Heather, and looks like a home video. This helps create the reality of the situation, so you feel for the characters like they're not just an actor playing a part.
This isn't the typical horror movie. There are no big explosions or special effects or bloodbaths. It's the fear of the unknown and to me that's a bit scarier than an old guy in a raincoat with a hook for a hand. You won't jump out of your seat in terror, but for the last hour or so, you should have goosebumps.So, in conclusion, if you don't like this movie, you are a retard and no one will ever like you.
