Blair Witch

Synopsis: Near Burkittsville, in the Black Hills Forest, on the root of a lightning-struck tree, the couple of Lane and Talia find a DV tape sticking out of the ground. The content of the found tape is mostly footage of static, however, near the end, there is also an intriguing small part where someone is trying to escape from something that is after him, screaming and running in an abandoned house.

Sooner or later, the team will go astray in the heart of a green maze that is riddled with the chilling legend of Elly Kedward, the Blair Witch who relentlessly keeps messing with their sanity, gradually taking them down, one by one.

Do you see her?

What do you mean?

I missed it the first time too.

Hang on.


What is that?

Lisa, I think that

might be my sister.

Wait, wait

Okay uh...

How did you even find this?

Did you have like a search alert set up?

Yeah, yeah exactly.

And usually it's nothing,

but the guy who uploaded

this video said it was

from a tape he found in

the Black Hills woods.

But those woods have been searched, right?

They never found the house.

Yeah, but the

Black Hills forest is huge,

so maybe they weren't looking

in the right place, you know.

That's why I want us to start

where the tape was found

and camp the night...

- Lisa.

- Hi.

- Hey.

What are you guys doing?

We're doing Lisa's documentary

class project, starring me.



So try on the earpiece camera.

- Uh, which is... Is it this one?

- Yeah.

And then, press the button

at the side.

- Okay.

- And then it should be recording.

The cool thing about these

is they've got built-in GPS.

How's that?

You're getting one of these

for Peter and Ashley, right?


We just have to make sure you remember

- ... to switch out the cards.

- Okay.

Iteration, take 1...

take 2... 3...

When James was 4 years old,

his older sister disappeared

while making a documentary

near the town of

Burkittsville, Maryland.

Some of the footage shot

by James' sister was later found.

The final moments of it

showed her going into a house,

seemingly within the

Black Hills forest.

That area was extensively searched

by police and FBI

but they could find no evidence

of an existing house in those woods.

Investigators concluded that James' sister

might have vanished else where

despite her crew's equipment

and footage being found nearby.

For as long as I have been

friends with James,

he's wondered what happened to her.

His continue search to find closure and

answers to his sister's disappearance

is the subject of this documentary.

How long have you

and James been friends?

Our parents were friends,

so I guess we grew up together.

So you knew him when

his sister disappeared.


I don't really remember Heather

all the well, to be honest.

But after she ran off into those woods

she didn't come back.

Yeah, I remember all that.

- I got one.

- That's me.

Nice shooting.


Can you give us an idea what

we're going to be doing out there.

The four of us,

we're going to go out there

and we're going to

try to find this house.

James, he's been messaging with

the guy who uploaded that video.

He's going to show us exactly where

in the woods he found the DV tape.

And James, you think

you're going to find the house?

Maybe, I hope so.

So you really think your sister

could still be out there

after all these years.

All I know is...

If there is

any chance at all

that I could find out

what happened to her

I need to at least try.

And what about the legends?


Yeah. Do you believe at all in

the stories about the Blair Witch?

Hey Lisa, I can't tell if

this thing is recording or not.

- Yeah, it should be. Did you...

- Yeah?

Did you press and hold

the button when you did it?


These things are so small,

where are you going to put it?

Okay, it's recording.

We are recording.

Just, and make sure it's always

facing forward

and make sure you

press the button down.

- And you hold it down.

- Got it. Got it.

- Are you pressing and holding?

- Yeah, I got it.

- Did you hold it down?

- Holding down, holding down, holding down.

- Hey, Peter!

- Yeah.

- How do I look?

- Yeah, that's sexy.

The thing is, he's going back out to
