Fool me once, Blair Witch Project, shame on you. Fool me twice, Open Water, shame... um... unshame upon...

Anyway, I decided to pass.

and, I liked Blair Witch--thought it was rather scary and fun (I saw it before the hype). I just hate it when reviewers get all horny over a film--and it turns out to be quite a yawnfest.

THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT was without a doubt the worst film I've ever had to endure. There was absolutely nothing scary, much less entertaining about it. It was a pathetic attempt at making a movie. The marketing campaign behind it however, was brilliant.

you see--a woman (shock) naked. The guy (who is HOT) didn't have to show anything.

It didn't think the movie was particularly scary at all. Maybe others will be entertained by it--but it just didn't cut it for me.

the idea of seeing open water scares me. I was traumatized by Jaws and my father when I was young.... even as late as last year, I was nervous going into the ocean... so......

I have a feeling it's going to be one of those movies that critics love because it's a quiet "horror" film and it takes it time and is more about fear than anything else. Movie-goers will hate it because it doesn't deliver the scares (The Village, anyone?).

I think the Village would have done a lot better if they would have just been honest about what kind of film they were putting out.

But then it wouldn't have made as much money, I think.

and that is the thing---I love when thrillers take their time and build psychological fear. It just so happens that for this film, the emperor has no clothes.

This hasn't made it to glorious Ohio yet but, as I'm absolutely petrified of the ocean, I'm looking forward to seeing it.

I also loved Blair Witch. I was in Europe that summer and missed all the hype and saw it when I came back. It was fun and creepy without the gore. I still like to watch it.
