One of 1999’s breakout success stories was a found-footage horror movie, a student documentary, a Sundance darling, an elaborate hoax, a sleeper hit, one of the most successful independent films of all time, and a viral marketing experiment that resulted in the film’s three stars being listed as “missing, presumed dead” on the website IMDb for over a year. The Blair Witch Project, a long-gestating production from amateur filmmakers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez, made on a shoestring budget of just sixty thousand dollars, grossed near $250 million at the box office. It finished in tenth place domestically, beating out other horror entries from masters like Tim Burton and Stephen King. The Blair Witch Project launched a whole genre of horror, from Paranormal Activity to Cloverfield and Chronicle. And now, in the woods of rural Maryland, three podcasters welcome in the season of evil… this is Legends of Halloween!
