The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project ★★★★★

I won't be dissuaded: "The Blair Witch Project" is the greatest horror film of the Nineties, and a landmark work in the genre. It's one of the few movies I can think of that truly captures a Lovecraftian sense of terror: the characters' sanity tested as time loops back on itself in a forever woods. I love that you can read this as a purely psychological or entirely supernatural story; I love its elegant simplicity, the narrative propelled by small actions (Mikey throwing away the map, Josh's disappearance) that carry severe consequences for our protagonists.
