Harbour Highlights: The Blair Witch Project

"I'm scared to close my eyes, I'm scared to open them. We're gonna die out here." Welcome to Harbour Highlights, a monthly selection of cult and classic favourites handpicked by the staff of Harbour Lights. This month marks 20 years since The Blair Witch Project opened in the UK before going on to become not only one of the most influential horror films of all time but forever changing the way films could be filmed and marketed. As chosen by Assistant Manager Mat and perfectly timed for Halloween, seeing the film on the big screen in a darkened room is still the best way to experience it. (Bonus trivia: October also marks 20 years since we re-opened as a Picturehouse following our premature closure seven months earlier - with The Blair Witch Project as our first film back)
