I'm pretty sure there is an answer somewhere, but i'm too lazy too look into it with depth..

But.. I read somewhere that the movie "The Blair witch Project" was based on a true story. In some place, they actually did find three college students dead under a 100 year old house. Along with tapes, recording, backpacks, and journal of the three college students..

It was on the news at some point in time, and i'm curious, is there a video or article of the Relevance between the two?

I said BASED on a true story!

There was a similar crime, that has similarities to the movie, and I was looking for maybe a news article about it, or a video? Just for curiosity..

They say it's based on a true story but I think that was just part of the movie. Otherwise nobody would make such a stupid sequel.

You could have added more info than "If..." in the thread title you know. Then I wouldn't have wasted my time on it.

No... Like someone said before me it's called MARKETING... they do that stuff so people will get interested like yourself for example.

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

no it's not based on a true story, but they went through a lot of effort (including making a couple of fake TV documentaries) to make everyone think it was.

fake. and terrible movie by the way, so anti-climatic.

was/is the only movie that scared me. It resonates with what fear is to me , no direction, little hope and so on... its for certain people I guess.

So I put If instead of Is. I guess that makes me a dumb ass. It probably also makes you infinitely smarter than me

The point is, you could have easily told us what this thread was about, but you didn't so more people would check it out of curiosity. And it wasted my time. In fact, why am I still here? Goodbye.

It's pretty obvious, if something that weird actually happened, then it would have been all over the news well before the movie came out.

that's it?

1. you probably weren't old enough to remember it if it was all over the news.

2. I want at least 17 sources backing up your claims that the movie is fake. (16 sources isn't gunna cute it), if you find at least 17 I'll believe you, but until then you're full of sh*t

1. That is possible (assuming that this happened sometime before the late 80s), however that doesn't account for the lack of true crime books, or the lack of the Blair Witch people pointing to a specific real life case.

2. How about you show me 17 sources saying that it did happen, that would actually be a lot easier.

I'm demanding your 17 sources, I love you pricks on this site you post your opinion as fact. Plus I'm too lazy to do it I have more less important things to do than prove some prick on the internet I'm right.

I'm stating facts, not my opinion, if I wanted to state my opinion I would talk about how crappy the movie was or something. Theres not really a lot of room to have an opinion on whether or not said events happened, they either did or they didn't, and in this case, they didn't, period, the people who made it even came out later and said that they made it all up.

Not relevant, but the initials of Blair Witch Project are the same as Blackwater Park, one of the best albums ever.
