1999 was the year the world almost came to an end thanks to the number 19 and the year 2k, but the world ushered in the Willenium anyway. It was also the year The Blair Witch Project became the movie phenomenon of last decade. Naturally, the guys behind Blair Witch see the this decade’s movie phenomenon Paranormal Activity and are a little pouty, despite the fact they didn’t want to be attached to endless sequels and therefore walked away from directing Blair Witch 2: Book of Crappy Sequels.
One of the dudes says this:
“I wouldn’t be completely honest with you if I said I wasn’t jealous of Paranormal Activity,” Sánchez says. “I’m happy for the guy … but at the same time, there’s the feeling that, man, I could have done this. It would have been different and might not have been as good. But I know how to make these films. To me it’s like, man, maybe I should go back and kind of milk this one more time.”
Here’s to honesty, brother. The kind of honesty that says you’re dumb because dude– you already did it and dude- that tit you want to milk is shriveled dry. Begone!
