Just picked up this in a charity shop for 33p - was I ripped of? :-)

I thought it was pretty terrible, but a lot of people claim to like the film better than THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

I'm one of those who thought it was better than Blair Witch - and I enjoyed Blair Witch too! See what you think of it, Gary. I reckon you got a bargain for 33p!

(and just think how many old ladies you could keep warm for 33p)

I thought THE LAST BROADCAST was clumsy and amatuerish. THE BLAIR WITCH was masterfully crafted. The former didn't scare me at all, but the latter left me terrified for weeks.

Be interested in your thoughts, G.

Well, I watched it. Thought it was quite good . . . until the end, which was kinda left field and bizarre, yet ultimately unsatisfying. The documentary was done well (if a little predictably) and the Jersey Devil hints were skilfully restrained. But that suggestiveness was wasted when it turned out to be a red herring all along. And there was some cyber gobbledegook which marred the cleanness of the tale for me. In short, a good attempt, and all the more impressive since it came before Blair Witch, but the ending was just daft.

Not a patch on Blair Witch, btw.

That cost me 1, tho, so forgive subjective dissoance resolution. :-)
