“I hear him! I hear him! I hear you! Josh! I’m going downstairs!”

The Blair Witch Project (1999), written by Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sánchez

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week is horror scene, suggested by @JaimePrimak.

Trivia: This film was in the Guinness Book Of World Records for “Top Budget:Box Office Ratio” (for a mainstream feature film). The film cost $22,000 to make and made back $240.5 million, a ratio of $1 spent for every $10,931 made.

Dialogue On Dialogue: “I’m going downstairs!” Perhaps the single worst thing a character can say in a horror movie. Downstairs… symbolic of the subconscious… the unknown… Hell…

    You know, I went to the Blair Witch in the cinema, fully expecting to be scared out of my wits.

    I cried with laughter. Along with my friend.
    We were probably dreadful film companions for any other cinema patrons.

    We were like Muttley and Muttley.
    I got a stitch from laughing.

    What I want to know is, were we the only ones?

    And don’t go down the stairs!
