The Blair Witch Project (1999)
The granddaddy of them all, Edward Sanchez and Daniel Myrick’s instant classic follows three filmmaking students (all loosely playing themselves) who venture into woodland in search of the legendary Blair Witch. The footage – supposedly found weeks later – shows that as they become hopelessly lost and seemingly tormented by an unseen force, things begin to unravel in fairly spectacular fashion (who can forget snot-cam?). The final ten minutes of the film remain truly, truly terrifying, with the film being an exercise in ‘less is more’ as much as it is a pioneer for a new genre.
