I have a special place in my heart for the Blair Witch films. Well, the first two at least. I completely forgot there was a third from 2016 and I’ve never seen it. But after completing the Blair Witch game, I’ve done a lot of thinking about what this series really is.
The first film was such a masterpiece of marketing and a tremendous lesson on how to make basically no budget work for you. The second, destroyed by producers, became a lesson in what not to do with a sequel. The video game does a lot of things right but it falls a bit short of what I think the series does best: messing with the audience’s perception of reality.
