  1. Oh man I hate Blair Witch. it was a good advertising campaign but one of the least scary movies I've ever seen. I really don't understand people who found it scary. I really, really don't.

    1. Sorry? You're sorry?! Actually, a lot of people don't like it.

      In truth, I'm a total sucker for stuff like BWP.

  2. Excellent show DM! Mind you I missed he raw cynicism that is the Count and there was not as much giggling as usual but still excellent.

    I think the recent acceptance of found-footage is related to the increase of reality television. That has encouraged disjointed undeveloped non-story storytelling with disappointing or totally predicable endings and film is just following that lead.

    Did and still do like BWP though, its the cheesy knockoffs I can do without.
