Description

Benefiting from an ingenious viral marketing campaign, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT wasn't just a massive hit at the box office in 1999, it was a cultural phenomenon – two things that made it difficult to reckon with as a work of art at the time. But 20 years later, the myth that shrouded the movie has lifted, and Adam and Josh discuss the merits of a film that relies on some of our most fundamental fears to generate its scares. That review part of the 9 From '99 series.

Plus, the first film in our Marlene Dietrich/Josef von Sternberg Marathon: 1930's THE BLUE ANGEL, with Dietrich as a cabaret temptress, and silent movie veteran Emil Jannings as the scolding professor who falls for her.
