8 | Generation Xers head into woods; we view excellent results
I saw this film last night, LONG after all the hype and reviews were made about it. I settled in with the right mood ...
The nighttime shot of Heather running through the woods (a prominent image in the trailers) had to be filmed twice because of logistical problems.
You know what? I kicked the fu... I'm sorry it's fucked up. It's fucked up but I kicked that fucking map into the creek yesterday! It was useless! I kicked that fucker into the creek!
Heather Donahue: I fucking hope he's kidding.
Michael Williams: WAHOO! WOW!
Joshua Leonard: Mike...
Michael Williams: Holy shit.
Heather Donahue: I ...
Joshua Leonard: ...
In Mike's reference to "The Wizard of OZ" in which he asks "Wicked Witch of the West, Wicked Witch of the East, which one was bad?" And Heather answers "Wicked Witch of the West was the bad one" Actually both Witches were bad. The Witch of the North was the good one.
The beginning and end credits are designed in the style of a documentary, e.g. jumping slightly, static instead of rolling credits.
