Three student filmmakers attempt to make a documentary about a local urban legend, the ‘Blair Witch’ – but all that’s left of them is the footage that comprises this film. Horror was never the same after this movie, a pioneering example of the ‘found-footage’ genre, and its groundbreaking marketing campaign convinced people (for a while) that the events depicted in it were true.
