Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez's The Blair Witch Project seemingly appeared from nowhere to become one of 1999's highest grossing films. While generating revenue as a low budget movie backed by a media blitz, The Blair Witch Project also generated controversy and made a mockery of the Hollywood industry, billing itself as "real" footage of a supernatural event. Critics were divided over some of the most basic questions: whether the film was an artistic success or the product of its hype, for example, and whether it challenged Hollywood conventions or succumbed to them in the end. Nothing That Is: The Blair Witch Controversies examines these and other debates, and initiates some of its own about American taste for horror, hoax, independent films, the Internet, and the direction of cinema in the twenty-first century. The book explores the modest origins and rapid demise of this independent film- while also analyzing the sensational results of its broad media discourses--a Web site developing the back story of The Blair Witch Project was one of the most-accessed sites on the entire Internet at the time of the movie's release. These essays, from many diverse perspectives, also look at The Blair Witch Project's manipulation of cinematic codes, its view on technology and the occult, its film progenitors, and even its effects on the film's setting of Burkittsville, Maryland. Nothing That Is will interest both film scholars and fans of this unexpected blockbuster that emerged from, if not "nothing," a complex brew of culture, technology, and ingenuity.

The Blair Witch Project

This book explores the aesthetics of 'The Blair Witch Project', how identification is encouraged in the film, & the way it successfully creates fear in contemporary audiences.

Few films have had the influence & impact of 'The Blair Witch Project' (1999). Its arrival was a horror cinema palette cleanser after a decade of serial killers & postmodern intertextuality, a bare bones 'found footage' trendsetter. 'The Blair Witch Project' was the tenth biggest box office earner of 1999. Even with strong competition in the horror genre, the film managed to stand out from the rest. It was arguably a product of its time more than any other film of the 1990s, heralding the advent of digital filmmaking. Backed up by an internet marketing campaign, the film became a glowing example of what could be achieved with cheap emerging technology, imagination, & a 'less is more' approach. This book explores the aesthetics of 'The Blair Witch Project', how identification is encouraged in the film, & the way it successfully creates fear in contemporary audiences.

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 2,0, University of Bonn, language: English, abstract: In this paper the following horror movies will be analyzed: The Blair Witch Project (1999) and Blair Witch (2016), Paranormal Activity 1 (2007), Cloverfield (2008) and 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016), The Ring Two (2005) and Rings (2017). These movies are being analyzed since their marketing campaigns concerning virality, word of mouth, interactivity and storytelling show many similarities but also some of them bring innovation to the marketing of horror movies. In the viral marketing of horror movies the strategies of storytelling and word of mouth are major factors in order to generate virality and to expand the fictional world consisting of characters and plot both online and offline. How the marketing campaigns of the studios regarding the movies listed above make use of these strategies and how viral marketing of horror movies has changed in terms of interactivity, mediality and storytelling since The Blair Witch Project will be examined in this paper.
