The Blair Witch Project

Unspooled #300.7 October 27, 2021

Amy & Paul take a hike through 1999’s revolutionary found-footage film The Blair Witch Project! They praise Heather Donahue’s often maligned performance, revisit the film’s enormously successful viral marketing campaign, and discuss the film’s pioneering of immersive, hand-held horror. Plus: Should directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez be credited as the film’s producers instead?

Next week Unspooled’s Scaretober series concludes with Nightmare On Elm Street!
