Would have been brilliant--10 years ago
21 June 2004 | by (Bothell, Washington, Land of Rain) – See all my reviews

"The Wicksboro Incident" might have been a small sensation had it been released a decade ago, before "The Blair Witch Project." Then again, maybe not. For one thing, "Wicksboro" wouldn't have existed if not for "Blair Witch," seeing as how it is a blatant rip-off--the same faux documentary homemade style, same basic story with UFO's tossed in, even some virtually identical scenes. But Wicks doesn't carry the gimmick to any kind of surprising, or even logical conclusion, and lacks the "this really happened and we found this footage buried in a hole in the ground" thing that made its predecessor so compelling. (I won't spoil the ending for you, but let's just say that where "Blair" had an eerily ambiguous ending, Wicks barely has one at all). And it doesn't help that there's only 30 or 40 minutes worth of material to fill its 90 minute length--a lot of repetition and worthless footage that any real documentarian would have edited out, further killing the illusion of reality.

Maybe if you've never seen Blair, you'll like Wicks to some degree--if you have a remote with a greased fast forward button.
