I was trying to quote someone here at this board. I think that's where I heard it. But you wouldn't know, probably that was before you got here.

I admit I found that joke more entertaining than The Blair Witch Project. But I do know it was popular, and it was definitely different. I'm just kind of glad that shaky-cam style didn't completely take over the film industry.

As to the other conversations going on here, after your post, I don't have much to say as I'm not one who appreciates horror. There is one "scary movie" that I have liked, and I admit it's one of my favorite movies: the classic version of "The Haunting". I love that movie, and it's sense of style. Not that it's better or worse than any other, it's just more to my tastes.

I think it is brilliant, though. I've never seen nor heard of a horror film like it. I'm not sure if it's even considered horror.
