Comments
"The Blair Witch Project" - the movie,  In October of 1994, three student filmmakers dissapeared in the woods near Burkittesville, Maryland, while shooting a documentary. One year later, their footage was found. 

Horror thriller. 

First official public screening was on 23 January 1999 at the Sundance Film Festival 1999. Shooting of the movie took eight days in October 1997. Shot entirely on handheld cameras for a reported  budget of $30,000. Artisan Entertainment bought it up at the Sundance Film Festival for $1.1 million for worldwide rights at a time when most other distributor didn't want to touch it. It earned approximately $48 million in its first week of wide release. 

Yes, there is a Burkittsville, Maryland. It's a small town just northwest of Brunswick. Here is a Burkittsville website in a response by some of the residents of Burkittsville to the "Blair Witch Project.

20 Oct 99 - Well,  Where to start. first off Daniel and Eduardo, are the best, man like wether it was luck of talent, they did it. and from my experience, it takes talent to be lucky, cause it will only take you so far. I will be one of the many(I hope) in line to pick up the wonderful film on DVD this Friday, cool. and I do know that I will enjoy watching it over and over again. 

Well, about hte movie, it was the most terrifying 80 minutes of my film going career, I loved every second of it. I think that you really had to be an intelligent person to enjoy that movie, because all of the people that I talk to that are a bit intelligent LOVED the film, and the rest wanted Van Damme to break through and kick the Witchs' ass. So, if that tells you anything, then you will know whether or not you will like it now. Hmm, I'm gonna stop now, and go to bed, but lastly, I really like it also because when the guys made the film they kept in mind the the people watching the film were everyday people, and not the Neve's and Sarahs of the world, and that is why the film spoke to so many people.  Thank you for your time, and Good Night  Peace and Love  Danu Christ  P.S. about time famous people other than the mouse and a few bad band came out of Orlando, I love this place 

16 Oct 99 - My name is Fabio, from Brazil. Sorry, but I don't know write in english very well. I have some doubts about the movie BlairWitch Project. I want to know who is the person, is the last scene, that is  "looking" to the wall. Is he Josh? If is Josh, why he is on feet? Is Mike? I don't know who is that people. Can you help me? Thanks... Fábio from Brazil
