The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project ★★★★½

Sticks and stones...

This film's source of power, its unfathomable well of fear and eerie desolation, is the woods itself. Raw nature as a liminal space between life and death where strange sounds and screams emerge from the directionless dark, nowhere and everywhere — the night itself a nebulous aperture. A hinterlands belonging to the occult, secreted away by rituals unknown, where naive trespassers should not wander lest they be hexed and drawn into its crawling chaos.

It still feels real enough to me.
