The Blair Witch Project

 (1999)

The Blair Witch Project Blu-ray features mediocre video and audio in this still enjoyable Blu-ray release

Three film students travel to the woods of Maryland to investigate an urban legend, and find themselves terrified to the core. The friends - Heather, Josh and Mike - never return from the Black Hills Forest, and one year later their missing footage is found and edited together to tell the story of the amateur filmmakers' terrifying two-day hike.

For more about The Blair Witch Project and the The Blair Witch Project Blu-ray release, see the The Blair Witch Project Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard, Michael C. Williams
Directors: Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sanchez

The Blair Witch Project Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Was there ever a film less likely to benefit from a Blu-ray upgrade than The Blair Witch Project? I certainly can't think of one. This film obviously is "recreating" an amateur attempt at making a documentary, and so we're greeted with a variety of what looks to be at best 16mm footage, all with attendant grain, fuzziness and overall softness, and at times appallingly bad color. (Several black and white segments are also included in the film). The Blu-ray's AVC encoded 1080p image, in 1.33:1, certainly recreates the original look of the film spectacularly well, but if you've never seen Blair Witch, take a deep breath before getting your expectations too high. This film looks almost exactly like it did on SD-DVD. Colors may indeed be a tad better, but I found the Blu-ray's superior resolution to actually be a detriment to the film's image quality, with an almost pixellated look to a lot of this intentionally lo-fi video. Contrast is negligible, to the point where often far shots of one of the trio simply dissolve into a morass of muddiness, where the human can't be differentiated from the foliage. There's also some fairly egregious telecine wobble during the opening credits and textual elements of the film, as well as shimmer and some noticeable edge enhancement. The Blair Witch Project was frankly always an ugly looking film, something that added to its peculiar charms to a certain segment of the filmgoing public, and this Blu-ray unfortunately can't do much with that less than glamorous source material.


The Blair Witch Project Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Similarly, there's very little if any "high def" audio presentation here, despite a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix. This is a film with the bulk of the audio supposedly coming from the built in microphones on the handheld cameras the trio brings with them on their mystical trek, and so an overly compressed soundfield has been part and parcel of the Blair Witch experience from the beginning. Dialogue is for the most part very clear, and there are some very inventive sound effects well mixed into the proceedings. In fact I would argue rather vociferously that a good deal of the terror felt by audiences in the film's closing moments is due to the expertly placed shrieks which fill the admittedly narrow soundfield, more than any imagery we see during the denouement. While there's nothing extraordinary here, it's a nuts and bolts soundtrack that sports decent enough fidelity to get the job done, with a few dashes of overt theatricality mixed in for good measure.
