3.0 out of 5 stars Trick of the Light?, 10 Jun 2000
This review is from: The Blair Witch Project [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
There are different types of people in the world. For those who love dripping blood, creatures with enormous claws, werewolf transformations - this film will not appeal. For those who have ever lain awake at night, listening to a creaking floorboard and just wondered...this film will revive such memories.
Nevertheless, while it is a generally well executed film it is not perfect. I enjoyed it, and have watched it twice. Its not a bad film but I think its appeal comes from playing on childhood fears - the dark woods, strange sounds at night. Suspend disbelief, imagine you are watching a tape belonging to a friend who mysteriously disappeared - that's the power of the film.
The DVD is an excellent transfer, variance in picture quality is deliberate, the home movie feel giving it a greater ambience than it might otherwise have had. It also triumphs over the R1 release by presenting it in full screen and not adding a frame around the whole picture (supposedly to make it look as if the viewer is actually watching through a camera viewfinder).
Extra features include commentary track, The Curse of the Blair Witch, trailers, TV spots etc.

"There are different types of people in the world. For those who love dripping blood, creatures with enormous claws, werewolf transformations - this film will not appeal." I contest the notion that if you dislike the movie it's because you lke Warewolfs and dripping blood, It's not qute as simple as that I for one don't mind tenson horror.
