Storyline

This short film was originally offered by Blockbuster Video to promote the rental and sales of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT video when it was first released. There is an amusing comment at the beginning of STICKS and STONES indicating that Blockbuster didn't go looking for the added footage because "You'd have to be crazy to go into those woods." Much of the film is scenes from THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and CURSE OF THE BLAIR WITCH. But two new pieces of film are tacked on at the end, one of which provides a provocative added clue or misclue to the mystery. This clue adds support to one of the many theories of what happened in THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, namely that there was some sort of time warp involved which prevented the search party from seeing the three missing college students even though the searchers covered the same territory where the students disappeared. STICKS and STONES isn't particularly important except for the two new pieces of film. If the viewer has no interest in the ...

Why?????????? Even at 1cent, why??????????
10 June 2000 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the concluding trilogy of the original "The Blair Witch Project". Quite frankly, both "The Blair Witch Project" and "The Curse of the Blair Witch Project" are better.

"Sticks and Stones: Investigating the Blair Witch" seems/seemed to just be another way to cash in on the The Blair Witch Phenomenon, a phenomenon that is being totally milked dry.

I guess the film is ok, if you absolutely loved the first one, but this continuing trend of finding lost footage and of more interviews is/was getting annoying. There essentially is nothing new here and the performances and writing are nothing special. It is a short film that will be easily forgotten and I doubt it will be redistributed when the next line of Blair Witch 2 products come out.

As a side story, and possibly showing how doomed "Sticks and Stones: Investigating the Blair Witch" was, Blockbuster originally gave this as a free rental to "The Blair With Project". Then it was a PVT and there were so many of them that eventually the local store was selling them for 1cent with any purchase. I thought 1cent, what the heck? My recommendation to you though is to save your penny.
