Mockumentary better than film!
14 November 2000 | by (Duchy of Grand Fenwick) – See all my reviews

The Sci-Fi Channel's SHADOW OF THE BLAIR WITCH purports to delve into the "true" case that inspired the film BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2. Using convincingly faked police file footage and interviews with "experts," "law enforcement officials," and even "families of the victims," SOTBW looks at how accused killer Jeff Patterson became obsessed with THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT (1999). Footage from both films enhance the show's realism, as does the use of different actors for the "real" characters. I'm sure that SOTBW has fooled almost as many people as 1999's CURSE OF THE BLAIR WITCH (also first aired on SFC).
