On this day exactly ten years ago, a movie dropped that would forever change the face of independent film. Love it or hate it, The Blair Witch Project stands proudly as a sterling example that anyone with the right equipment, a boatload of passion, and a bitchin’ idea can make a great film outside of Hollywood.
What a ride this flick had, huh? Sadly, it seems en vogue now to hate the movie, but back in the day most fans (myself included) just couldn’t get enough of the story, the books, the film, and the brilliant mythology that had been put into place.
For all those involved — from directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick to talented collaborators like Ben Rock and Neal Fredericks and everyone in-between — we here at Dread Central would like to take a moment to say thanks not only for the scares but for giving fans everywhere a new reason to be afraid of the dark.
