    Through the movie hype, the viral marketing, and the fake websites created for the movie, we've all been led to believe that the Blair Witch is a dangerous demon roaming the woods, ready to kill us. But what if that was never the case? What if, even in the movie, there's no such thing as the Blair Witch? Today's episode uncovers a secret murder plot where the only monsters are the kids making a documentary in the woods...

          OK. So then Mike & Josh leave the country - never to be seen or heard of again... Seems quite a complicated process to get rid of someone, and narrows down their future options.

                  Exactly. There is no reason, the whole mythology and the video documentary that leads up to the movie tells you they had good relationships. This theory is stupid.

                I thought that the people 3 amigos were actually tricked to believe they were making a documentary and the director made this whole thing up, and picked one of the guys to hide pretending he was taken and at the end they just scared the girl so badly she dropped the camera to make the movie seem more realistic because it had no script and the terror was real

                  The actress was suspicious of josh and mike in real life, she thought they mightve been making a snjff film. So what if by her suspicions she set them into a subconcious mode where they felt nefarious towards her and mabye even felt like it would be cool if there was a secret storyline where its a plot by josh and mike to kill her. There wasnt enough planned writing to make all of the statements matt patt made that hinted to them being the killers, in the script, most of it was ad lib and they were told to act natural, so alot of what paints them out to be bad wasnt even necasarily planned by the writer it couldve just been mike and joshs ad lib actions to make them seem guilty. So in other words even if the director and writer were to say that josh and mike werent the killers, its also up flr mike and josh to decide cuz they were essentially half the writers directors and filmers

                    It might be that josh killed them both and was planning on doing so, also one small thing the blair witch appears to only be possessing people so its presumable that she possessed mike to stand in the corner and possessed josh to lure the downstairs then kill heather, instead of the blair which using her own hands

                      Mat patt wouldve been a good detective in the 1999s, i mean what if the blair witch tapes were real, he wouldve deduced that it was a scheme by josh and mike.

                        how would that happen? He stole this theory from Reddit and it's not even solid. Reddit didn't exist in the 90s anyway lol

                      Also the standing in the corner thing as a distraction also makes sense so that they can make it look even more like the witch who did it cuz of the story they said earlier.

                        The actress actually said she got the sense while filming this that she thought she accidentally signed onto a snuff film and didnt trust mike or josh

                              they died. Josh the actor said that his character died first. The filmmakers said the witch killed all 3

                              Back in the 90's, people would go on camping trips or day trips, or spend a week or so doing whatever. Before cell phones, before the internet - people weren't as connected, to get to know people you DID things.

                                      But what would be the point of all that??? If they wanted to kill her why drag it out so long in some elaborate scheme instead of just doing it right when they got there??? It would however make more sense if the witch made one or both of them do it.

                                        There were a witch...
                                        You were just too lazy to check out the original website, interviews (heck they even released a book when the movie was released to push the paranormal events further)....
                                        They found the tapes in a 150yo wall in the burned down cabin, no way josh & mike could've put it there.
                                        Also, no there weren't a witch since the haunting of black hills goes back to way before Blair's town, it's actually closer to some kind of Lovecraftian deities.

                                        Also, who did the kid's laughs? Does Mike or Josh can imitate them like the dude in Police Academy?

                                        The thing is, the actual story is way more fucked up, they were sent back in time, since the force at Black Hill can control Space and Time, reason why they turn in circle, Heather was never woth Josh (proof: website, even the book, it's stated by her best friend she had a boyfriend, but heh .... Wasn't josh).
                                        She didn't knew Mike simply because originaly, a friend of Heather should've came to take the sound instead of Mike, but she went sick, so Josh called Mike, because he wanted to learn how to work on a movie (he was interested into sound ingeneering).

                                        Your theory is lazy and doesn't hold up.
                                        The even made up a false documentary weeks prior to release to explain all the back story, it's on YouTube, no excuse not to check it out.

                                          This theory would be great if the tent scene wasn't part of the movie but you could also say that there was a 4th party involved with the murder that could play recorded children sounds and scare them from outside the tent. If you watch the scene closely you can see only one side of the tent seems to be shaken which of course one person can do. He didn't throw the map away. He gave it to the other person so they could follow from far behind. This could also explain how the two guys could get away without a trace. The other person was the ride.

                                            This is better than the crap they threw at us, but for this theory, you have to dig too deep and use too much imagination. So, this film and the idea was horrible and shitty execution. The only thing that you can get about this theory in the movie is the whole map thing. The journals and other things are too much to look into, wish this movie and the new game that came out on it would just disappear.

                                                        This entire theory is debunked easily by one thing. Who was shaking their tent when all three of them were in it when they heard the children's voices?

                                                        But here's what puts this theory right to bed: Blair Witch (2016) is a direct sequel to the 1999 film, and is canon. Blair Witch 2 is non-canon, and not a true sequel. It is proven in Blair Witch (2016) that what occurred was in fact supernatural.

                                                          All of this makes sense except one thing: if you want to kill someone and have a way to prove you didn't do it, is staging a paranormal event really the smartest option? I'm pretty sure urban legend is not admissible in court.

I think the ending of the movie is a look-back on that.

Because nobody could be that ignorant about a movie. And Blair Witch was a great film. It was one of the first to show the POV from the characters. The creators did a great job promoting the film. Yes I know it aint real. But they created a buzz and raised questions if it is real or not. Blair witch is first of its kind

They said there is a witch/a murderer who kidnaps the kids and keep them locked in the attic. Then he always takes two of them to the basement, makes one of them facing the corner of the room and kills the other one. And then he/she obviously kill the first one.
