Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0609806459, Paperback)Inspired by the film that became a cultural phenomenon, Beyond Blair Witch delves deeper into the vein of scary lore and legend, with historic tales from around the country.
The film The Blair Witch Project was born from a great idea, shot on a virtually nonexistent budget, marketed through the digital campfire we huddle around today, and released to scare us with a tale of things that lurk out of sight.
Intended to appeal to the film's die-hard fans as well as to those who are fascinated by the reasons for its unlikely success, Beyond Blair Witch goes just where its title suggests, beyond the hype and the fictional story of the original film. Beyond Blair Witch takes the film's premise a step further, presenting fifteen tales whose folkloric and historic roots are firmly embedded in the American landscape, from the Carlisle Witch and the Denton Vampires to the Civil War soldier who still reaches out to touch the citizens of the same Burkittsville, Maryland, that is the setting for the film. Each tale explores a specific facet of the Blair Witch legend -- from stickmen to shunning -- all re-creating the rich tapestry of oral history that inspired The Blair Witch Project.
