    Certain to nauseate a portion of its audience. show more

    The suspense becomes so unbearable that it's easy to overlook questions about whether anyone in such circumstances would continue filming. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The inexplicably terrifying ending is good for a month's worth of nightmares -- no small thing for a movie in such a saturated field. show more

    At a time when digital techniques can show us almost anything, The Blair Witch Project is a reminder that what really scares us is the stuff we can't see. show more

    Many of us may have thought that with the world offering so much vivid horribleness every day, movies had lost the power to give us a good cathartic scare. It's a shock -- and a pleasure -- to discover we were wrong. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    May be the creepiest and most original horror film since John Carpenter's classic "Halloween." show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Examiner

    Blair Witch forgoes a literal boogeyman in favor of the unseen, which, in this case, is as scarily bone-chilling as anything they could show you. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Caused a major stir with Sundance, and for good reason -- it was perhaps the most offbeat, energetic, and eye-opening motion picture to screen there. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    An ultra-cheap movie, ingeniously promoted through the Internet -- is notable primarily as a model of guerrilla-style niche-marketing. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The movie would be better as a 30-minute short, though, since its shaky camera work and fuzzy images get monotonous after a while, and there's not much room for character development within the very limited plot. show more

    Terrible movie. Nothing scary about it! I don\'t know what these critics are smoking if they think that this movie is the least bit good. Shaky camera, poor lighting, and there is NOTHING that ever pops up and scares you. If you think that this is scarier than paranormal activity, then you have the WORST taste in movies.

    Agree with fordsforlife. Is the worst move in circulation. no story no sense; may be is good for the local if they have the mentalityof the protagonists.

    The Blair Witch Project has been miscast and under-rated because it has been misunderstood. This drama is about unwanted pregnancy and the attendant nightmare of solitary abortion by the female.

    this was an awesome movie. ive seen it tons of times. i didnt find it very scary but it was extremely creepy and suspensful. the ending left you guessing and it was the best horror/drama ever without all the gore. go watch it, youll love it!!!
