The Blair Witch Project is a documentary of 3 teenagers. They went up into the Blair Woods to make a documentary for school about the Blair Witch legend. The movie is spposed …to look like it was filmed from Heathers Camera.. The Blair witch legend is about a woman, in the 1700's accused of being a witch. The legend has lived on through many generations , and many still believe in it.. The kids who went "missing" are not real teenagers, they are just actors and are not missing. The Blair Witch Project is a documentary based on the legend of the bell witch. This was a lady who was accused of being a witch and was executed for it. Later on she started killing children when she died. This was the legend and it took place in 1785 in Burkittsville. The documentary is about a group of three students that disappear and the footage is found to show what happened. It is rated 15 and is a psychological thriller which makes you ask yourself if this really happened and because it stops on a cliffhanger, it makes the movie more scarier. The documentary shows the footage of 3 students going through woods and getting lost. One of them disappears so there are only 2 people. They then find one of the others body parts (fingers, teeth) in a wrapped up bundle. They see sticks from trees in the shape of stick people hanging and also planted in the floor outside their tents, and they hear childrens laughter but they cant see anyone, this occurs in the middle of the night, whereas they wake up to see the stick figures. Right at the end, Heather Donahue, the only remaining student, runs into a abandoned house in fear, and she starts going up stairs but the camera started shaking vigorously until it lands on the floor and the film stops. It is presumed that all the students die. Apparently at the end of the film, in the credits, it says its not a true film. Wikipedia also classes it as a hoax documentary only basing it on the legend. Heather Donahue, Michael Williams and Joshua Leonard are real people but they used their real names as students for the film which confused IMDB because they listed it as their death dates when actually they are still making films.
The Blair With Project is a completely fictional documenterry type film. No teenagers ever did go missing.
No. It's completely fictional. It's not real footage, and it's not based on a true story, either. It is a 100% imaginary story, although it is rumored that the filmmakers got …the idea from the real legend of the Bell Witch. There is no real legend of the Blair Witch. The Blair Witch does not exist, in American folklore or in reality. She was invented solely for the purposes of making this movie.
No. The film was created in a documentary style to appear real, but isn't actually real.
The budget was from 20,000 to 25,000 dollars.
Small stacks or piles of rocks are often used to mark the sites of graves.
No that story was based on the Jersey Devil tale.
You could say she is still alive, if you believed in the story in the first place. You could also say that she never existed, so then no she is not alive. Or, you could sa…y she casts spells to keep herself from dying, if you believe in that. ------ The Blair Witch is a fictional character created for the movie The Blair Witch Project. She was never alive. However, she is inspired by the true story of the Bell Witch.
No. If you have the DVD listen to the commentary track to get all the behind the scenes dirt.. some parts are true there was a crazy cannibal lady living in the woods

The Blair Witch Project (1999) is 100% fictional. It's not real footage, nor is it based on a true story, although the filmmakers may have gotten the idea from the legend of …the Bell Witch. There is no Blair Witch , in legend or in reality. She is completely fictional.
The Movie Was Made In 1994.
It wasn't controversial when it came out. But it was one of the first widely released films -- if not the first -- to use handheld, home-movie cameras. Using hand-held camer…as, to get that realistic, home-movie look, is now a bit of a cliche, but at the time, it was a very innovative technique. The other exciting thing about it was the fact that it was advertised as a true story. Supposedly, the dead kids' tapes had been found in the woods, and all the footage was completely real. The moviemakers worked very hard to make the hoax believable: for example, when the movie first came out, the actors were listed as "missing, presumed dead" on the imdb (Internet Movie DataBase) entry for the film. In fact, some people actually still believe that the film is real! Passing a fictional movie off as the truth was not a new tactic: both the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Fargo , for example, were also touted as true stories, when in fact they are completely fictional. But the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Fargo were presented as "based on a true story." They were supposed to be fictionalized, dramatized accounts. The Blair Witch Project was not supposed to be based on a true story. It was supposed to be a real, unadulterated home movie that had been discovered in the woods.
Libraries and video stores ought to have copies of it.
No, there is very little bloodshed in this movie. The only part that's even remotely gory is the part where Heather unwraps the "package" that is left outside their tent. We o…nly get a quick glimpse of the bloody mess that's inside; you have to pause and look very closely to see what it is. I don't want to ruin it for you since you obviously have not seen the movie, but if you want to know, see the Related Question below. Other than that, the closest it comes to being gory is the part where Heather describes how the victims at Coffin Rock were eviscerated and mutilated. And this is only a verbal description; there are no images to accompany it.
If you mean in the movie, then it is a haunted house in the woods... I don't know what woods, but it was where (in an urban legend) multiple campers were killed.
