Like it, love it, or hate it, The Blair Witch Project defined the cinéma vérité style horror films that have exploded over the last few years.

When filmmakers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez wrote and directed The Blair Witch Project, which debuted in theaters ten years ago this past summer, they ushered in a sub-genre of filmmaking that was part reliant on the power of suggestion, part pre-reality TV, and part old-fashioned exploitation fright film.
It was just ten years ago that director Eduardo Sanchez left his mark on the horror genre. His independent docu-thriller The Blair Witch Project not only raised the bar in terms of independent filmmaking, but it became a cultural phenomenon that still resonates a decade later.
