The Blair Witch Project - Movie Synopsis & Plot

In October of 1994, three student filmmakers disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland while shooting a documentary. A year later, their footage was found.

On October 21, 1994, Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael Williams hiked into Maryland's Black Hills Forest to shoot a documentary film on a local legend, "The Blair Witch." They were never heard from again.

One year later, their footage was found. "The Blair Witch Project" is their legacy. It documents the filmmakers' harrowing five-day journey through the Black Hills Forest and captures all of the terrifying events that led up to their disappearance.

Shot on 16mm film by Joshua Leonard with sound recorded by Michael Williams, Heather Donahue both performed the narration for the film and shot its behind-the-scenes footage. Heather's High-8 video recordings document the growing rifts and realizations between the filmmakers as each frustrating day and terrifying night passes.

MOVIE REVIEW

Everyone has been talking about The Blair Witch Project: The great acting, the realism, and the scariness. However, The Blair Witch Project was not scary... but it was creepy. And realistic. And had great acting. And for those who didn't know that this was a completely fake movie, The Blair Witch Project stopped them from ever going camping again. As for me, I was just impressed by the realism, setting, and abrupt ending.
