A group of tourists are found ritualistically murdered in the woods, and the sheriff suspects Jeff. Erica, who had disappeared earlier, is found dead in a closet. The group finds a video of themselves engaged in what appears to be a satanic ritual, where it is revealed that Tristen may be the witch. She threatens the other tourists, and then hangs herself. We later see the group having been arrested for Tristen and Erica's murders, as well as the group in the woods. We learn that the mix of Blair Witch hysteria and the amount of drugs consumed by the group the night before led them to go crazy and kill the tourists in the woods the same way the people at Coffin Rock were killed. We also see in some security tapes that Kim murdered the rude convenience store clerk, and that Tristan didn't hang herself; the group pushed her off the balcony, accusing her of being the witch. The tape shows Tristan begging for her life before they hang her.
Trivia: Rustin Parr shows up in the movie. In the general store there is a man on the floor "fixing" the fridge. He doesn't move in his scenes and seems dead. The only time he speaks is in Chapter 15 after Kim says "Excuse me" and he says "I'm finished now" Rustin Parr was said to have walked into a general store after killing the Burkittsville 7 and saying the same thing. Also "The Secret Confession of Rustin Parr" by DA Sterns shows a picture of Rustin Parr played by the same actor in the movie.
Question: On the DVD (UK, not sure about anywhere else) there is a feature called 'the secret of esrever', which tells you to look for very subliminal hidden images in the film - I have looked so many times and there is still one I can't find - does anyone know where the 'water' one is? The only thing I can see is what looks like an owl's head made out of the trees in the scene where the woman is drowning a baby in the lake. If this is it how does it relate to the film? Also is there a message in the images? There are a few words but I can't make a sentence out of them.
