October 29 @ 9:15 pm
“…This still disturbing, nigh essential work of horror deserves so much more than a sniff of nostalgic recognition… There’s enough richness in the conception itself to potentially carry the film, but Myrick and Sanchez’s low-budget innovation and visual approach is clearly what made Blair Witch such a phenomenon.” Reverse Shot
“81 minutes of nerves being slowly shredded before your eyes…” The Dissolve
