At only a half hour of running time, STICKS AND STONES is something that you can afford to watch. It was originally released as a Blockbuster Exclusive to promote rentals of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. There are some notable scenes in here, considering that the whole "documentary" was faked in the first place.
Most of the footage contained here is lifted from the Discovery Channel documentary CURSE OF THE BLAIR WITCH, which is probably a better watch. But, this film is better in the sense that it is shorter and has some footage not contained in CURSE OF THE BLAIR WITCH (some of the new footage is even pretty interesting).
All in all, this film is worth the watch. And even if you don't think it is, you'll only be wasting a half hour. I really do feel that this film is a good addition to the mythology of the Blair Witch...but, remember...it's just a movie.
STICKS AND STONES gets 4/5.
