Found video footage tells the tale of three film students who traveled to a small town to collect documentary footage about the Blair Witch, a legendary local murderer. The project takes a frightening turn when they lose their way in the woods and begin hearing horrific noises.
This terrifying, super-low-budget horror film shocked audiences and went on to make millions despite its humble origins. Taking the form of a documentary about a local legend, the film cleverly immerses the audience in hand-held video footage that looks like the real thing… and maybe it is.
