HONEST TRAILER – Blair Witch Project

The folks at Honest Trailers definitely don’t play kind when it comes to the movie that wound up basically birthing the genre we now know as Found Footage. In particular, the parody isn’t too happy with the notorious shaky cam, as well as the fact that not a whole lot of stuff actually happens during the 80 runtime — with most of the film basically watching three people wander around in the woods. But that’s all before focusing on what they ultimately see as the true villain of the piece: the viral marketing campaign, which not only left a lot of people feeling duped, but has been imitated by major blockbusters ever since.
