I thought Blair Witch was good, but I didn’t know it was fake when I saw it. In fact I saw it long before all the hype started and I didn’t know ANYTHING about it (I snuck into a test screening).
Even though knowing it it fake does not lessen my oppinion of the film, it is in fact totally fake. This summer I was working at the Angelika Film Center in NY, one of two theatres in the country that began running the film three weeks before it was released nationwide, creating a kind of perpetual premiere atmosphere. Mike and Josh and Heather would come by all the time, as well as the directors. I have talked to Mike, and I’m fairly certain he’s not dead. Dead people have more of a dead fish handshake. In closing:
Mike = not dead
Heather= not dead
Josh = haircut, but not dead
Blairwitch = not true
