The Blair Witch Project

blairA mind-numbing, dread-inducing slog of a scary movie. After the blunt-force trauma of the cellar-corner ending, the lights came up and the audience staggered out of the theater in shock, dismay, and anger. Half the audience seemed to be in shock over what they had seen, and a large percentage seemed to be angry at the movie. I don't think anyone was expecting a relentlessly dire and desperate film.
