Outline: 

Three film students go to Burkittsville, Maryland to make a documentary on the infamous Blair Witch legend. They go missing, but a year later their footage is found in a bag inexplicably burried under an abandoned 100-year-old house. The director is Heather Donahue (Heather Donahue), her main cameraman is Joshua Leonard (Joshua Leonard) and Michael Williams (Michael C. Williams) is the sound crew.

According to legend the Blair Witch is the ghost of Elly Kedward of the late 1700s. Several children accuse Kedward of luring them into her home to draw blood from them. Kedward is found guilty of witchcraft, banished from the village during a particularly harsh winter and presumed dead. By midwinter all of Kedward's accusers along with half of the town's children vanish. Fearing a curse, the townspeople flee Blair and vow never to utter Elly Kedward's name again. In 1825, eleven witnesses testify to seeing a pale woman's hand reach up and pull ten-year-old Eileen Treacle into Tappy East Creek. Her body is never recovered, and for thirteen days after the drowning the creek is clogged with oily bundles of sticks. In 1886, eight-year-old Robin Weaver is reported missing and search parties are dispatched. Although Weaver returns, one of the search parties does not. Their bodies are found weeks later at Coffin Rock tied together at the arms and legs and completely disemboweled. In 1941, starting with Emily Hollands, a total of seven children are abducted from the area surrounding Burkittsville, Maryland. An old hermit named Rustin Parr walks into a local market and tells the people there that he is "finally finished." After the police hike for four hours to his secluded house in the woods, they find the bodies of seven missing children in the cellar. Each child has been ritualistically murdered and disemboweled. Parr admits to everything in detail, telling authorities that he did it for "an old woman ghost" who occupied the woods near his house. He is quickly convicted and hanged. The three filmmakers interview the 'country bumpkin' types of Burkittsville, who seem equally enjoying being on camera and mystified as to why they'd want to make this film. Heather interviews Mary Brown an old and quite insane woman who has lived in the area all her life. Mary claims to have seen the Blair Witch one day near Tappy Creek in the form of a hairy, half-human, half-animal beast. Two fisherman tell Heather that Coffin Rock is less than 20 minutes from town and the three decide to make the woods of the 'Blair Witch' the centerpiece of the film.

After enjoying a drunken night at their motel, Heather, Josh and Mike park and go into the woods, with a map of the logging trail. After hiking a few miles into woods that seem far larger than they thought they were from the outside, they film the creek where the Coffin Rock massacre occurred. Satisfied with their footage the three set up their tent when it starts to rain. They remain in high spirits through the night, despite Mike's flatulence. The next morning Joshua claims he heard strange noises during the night, one of them he's determined was cackling.

Consulting their map of the area, the team decide to press on further into the woods in search of an old graveyard but Josh and Mike are a little concerned about the accuracy of Heather's map reading having got them a bit lost the day before. They set off, still in high spirits, kidding with each other and generally enjoying their weekend. Heather remains confident that they are on the right trail and that they will reach the graveyard in an hour and a half. But it soon becomes clear that they are in fact lost and tensions begin to mount, both men resenting that Heather continues to film while they're lost. They press on, braving an arduous river crossing over a log bridge. They soon come across a clearing where they find strange piles of rocks neatly stacked on the ground. Heather recalls something that Mary Brown had said about a pile of rocks in the bible, but can't remember exactly what it is. They find seven piles of stones all in all.

That night, they build a fire and cook food, some of the tensions having dissipated a little. During the night, Heather takes them back to the rocks to film more footage and one of them knocks over the pile of rocks. Later still, the trio hears strange noises from the woods and they set off to investigate. Something is clearly moving around them, but Mike refuses to leave the tent to help look for it. Next morning, it's raining harder than ever and the trio discuss the events of the night before. Josh suggests that the noises were caused by local rednecks and Mike agrees, worrying that if someone was prepared to come this far out into the woods just to frighten them, they must be seriously disturbed.

The group decides to head back for the car, Heather continuing to insist that she knows where they are going. As the day progresses and they fail to find their way back to the car, tensions again start to run high and, as the day turns into evening, Heather suggests that they camp for the night. Mike is starting to get increasingly stressed by their predicament, though Heather maintains that they aren't far from where they left the car.

That night, they are again disturbed by strange noises around them in the dark. They again go outside to see what's causing it and hear what seems to be trees being knocked over and other strange sounds. Josh suggests that it's probably deer, but Heather isn't so sure, noting that "it's on all sides of us" and that the sounds are like footsteps.

Next morning, they find three piles of rocks that have mysteriously appeared overnight surrounding their tent. Heather films the rock piles, to the dismay of Mike and Josh who just want to get home. But things are about to get worse - the map has disappeared. Heather had it in her trousers the night before, but it's gone now and the two men deny having seen it. They are now completely lost and have no way of finding their way back to the car. Josh implies that Heather has deliberately lost or hidden it to keep them all in the woods to complete her movies. Unwilling to give up, the trio keep on following the creek hoping that it will eventually lead them somewhere. Josh reasons that someone will start looking for them when they don't return.

They come to a river which again proves difficult to cross and already frayed tempers are stretched almost to breaking point, with Mike now acting even less rationally than ever. Heather is angry that the men are laughing at her when her shoes become waterlogged and a near hysterical Mike admits that he threw the map into the creek because he felt it was useless. Mike and Josh almost come to blows and Heather screams abuse at him, becoming even more hysterical than Mike. The relationship between the three is now completely broken down and they waste time arguing over who is going to hold the compass and apportioning blame. Eventually, after continuing south for a while, Mike and Josh simply stop and refuse to go any further. But in a nearby clearing, Mike finds strange stick figures hanging from trees, dozens of them, some in the shape strange runic symbols, others clearly meant to represent human forms. Heather films the totems for a while before Mike, and Josh demands that they leave the area. Mike screams hysterically for help, reasoning that rednecks have followed them and made the figures.

That night, they decide not to light a fire and to extinguish all lights in the hope that it won't give away their position and hence won't attract attention to themselves. But they are again all woken by strange sounds, including what appears to a baby screaming. As they are listening, something starts shaking their tent. All three flee into the night, still filming everything as they go and they spend the rest of the night cowering together in the darkness.

At day beak they return to the tent and Josh finds that all of his belongings have been scattered around the clearing and is covered with some strange slimy substance. They also find another of the wooden stick figures fashioned from twigs and vines. Finally sickened by her insistent filming of everything, Mike attacks Heather and tries to get her precious video camera away from her.

They again press on and Josh seems to be on the verge of losing it, becoming moody and depressed, wandering off to sit on his own. Mike and Heather forge an uncomfortable alliance, trying to hold the group together. Mike argues that whatever is stalking them will return and that they must keep moving, while Heather maintains that it's simply impossible for someone just to vanish in America. Later, they come to a river and, panic-stricken, realise that it's the same river they struggled across the previous day - they've been going round in circles. Mike rushes off ranting angrily while Heather collapses in tears. They're now desperate and have no idea where they should go - they've been heading south all day and they've simply ended up where they started from and Heather has no explanation for it. Josh's anger and frustration finally boils over and, turning the camera on Heather, taunts her about her ambition and obsession that has led to them being lost, cold and hungry. Mike tries to calm things down but Josh persists and torments Heather until she again breaks down in tears.

Night falls again and they are forced to sleep in pretty much the same place as they slept the night before. They're now too tired and emotional to fight any more and as they discuss the food they miss the most, Heather repairs a hole in Mike's jeans.

Next morning, Heather and Mike wake to find that Josh has vanished. They search the area around the camp site but there's no sign of him. Mike believes that Josh has simply gone off for some time alone, but even after they've packed up and broken down the tent, there's no sign of him. Totally demoralised and clearly very disturbed, Heather and Mike move on, trying to keep each others spirits up. Night again falls and they again wake to hear strange noises in the woods, including what seems to be Josh's agonised screams. They stumble around in the dark looking for him, but there's no sign of him and it's impossible to tell which direction the screaming is coming from.

At daybreak, Heather finds a strange bundle of sticks held together with twine sitting on the ground outside the tent. She nervously picks it up and throws it away. Heather and Mike are now just too exhausted to move on and they spend the rest of the morning comforting each other. Later, Heather finds another of the bundles of twigs, this time with something inside - she opens it and finds a piece of the material from Josh's shirt wrapped around hair, an unidentifiable piece of viscera, and what appears to be teeth, all bloodied. Heather breaks into hysterics, rushes to the nearby stream and washes her hands before putting on her pack and joining Mike on another fruitless hike through the woods. Their meanderings are becoming ever more random and directionless as their mental states rapidly collapse. Mike is even driven to eating dry leaves to help alleviate the hunger.

That night, Heather videotapes a confessional, apologising to her mother and to Mike and Josh's parents for her naivety accepting full blame for what has happened on the ill-fated expedition. She realises that her dogmatism and pig-headedness are what has led them to being where they are. Later in the dead of night, they again Josh's voice, closer this time, pleading for someone to help him and they abandon the tent to go in search of him.

Following Josh's voice, Heather and Mike find a derelict house in a clearing and goes inside where they see runic symbols on the wall next to child sized hand prints. Josh's voice seems to be coming from somewhere inside the house and Mike rushes upstairs in search of Josh. Mike then realizes that the voice is now in fact coming from the basement and rushes down the steps. Suddenly, Mike is rendered silent and the camera falls. A hysterical Heather follows and sees Mike in the corner of the room, face against the wall. Suddenly Heather's camera is knocked down too and she is rendered silent. The film runs for a few seconds and then dies.
