I like Blair Witch, but it was certainly better on the big screen, definitely more effective

I luv the Blair Witch Project! Admittedly, it's a one-watch film but it definitely got me terrified when I saw it. I watched it on DVD, alone in my room - I think that would've been much better than the cinema, personally, as seeing it in the cinema kind of goes against what made the film so believable and ultimately scary.

I watched the documentary then the film straight after in a pitch black room and i really enjoyed it. The doc got me in the mood for it. Very creepy in places.

As teens we always used to camp out in fields and woods so things that go rustle in the dark always work with me.

Yeah I bought into the whole Blair Witch hype at the etime. Loved that faux documentary they made going into the backstory, and I still have a comic book that details the history! Superb film, and imo holds up on the small screen - great trio of performances, almost more a dramatic tragedy than horror . . . !

My hatred of BWP is legendary, so I'll keep off this thread....

I personally think BWP would have worked better for me if I'd actually caught a glimpse of something terrifying lurking in the woods, but you didn't.

I think that is what divides people about that film so much. Personally, the fact you don't see whatever it is makes it all the more terrifying for me. It demands you to use your imagination which can often be much scarier than anything put on the screen. The same is true with Paranormal Activity. It also avoids the problem of having such a great build up and then it being completely ruined by some stupid looking monster.
