Trivia:
This entire film was a mockumentary that was advertised as an unauthorized bio of reclusive director M. Night Shyamalan. After going as far as Shyamalan reporting to the press that he was upset about the release of this film, many fans and journalists became upset when they later learned it was all a hoax. The Sci-Fi channel released an apology a few days before release for their campaign strategies.See more »

Looking for the Blair Witch on the set of "The Village", 19 July 2004
Author: Dan Dargon from Watertown, MA

I made it through about two and a half hours before moving on to repeats on the History Channel. After about the first hour I started to suspect that this (the film) was either a put-on or the filmmaker had to make a three hour production out of ten minutes of material.

If you've seen it (the documentary) how many people carry Polaroid cameras anymore? And if so would you go drinking with a bulky camera that takes twelve pictures for $14 per roll.

I liked the bit about Henry. That was pretty creepy. I also enjoyed how the teacher held on the the special picture Mr. Shaymalan made which hasn't aged a day in the twenty years she's had it.

Don't bother if you haven't seen it. See The Village.
