1999 Curse Of The Blair Witch

Curse of the Blair Witch is a mockumentary about the Blair Witch legend and the three filmmakers who disappeared in October of 1994. It first aired on the Sci-Fi Channel on July 11, 1999 as a promotional prelude to the July 30, 1999 release of The Blair Witch Project, a found footage supernatural psychological horror film written, directed, and edited by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez. The film was a commercial success, grossing more than $248.6 million on a small budget of $60,000.

I remember this scaring me even more than the movie did when I watched on Sci-Fi in 1999. Maybe because it told the backstory of the Blair Witch plus included other creepy footage like a Rustin Parr short documentery and interview in prison, the serial killer whose house appears at the end of the film. You can watch a vhs recording of Curse Of The Blair Witch as it originally aired on Sci Fi Channel on 10/30/1999 WOC (With Original Commercials) below, or you can watch a high quality version at
