The Blair Witch Project has brought much unwanted attention to Burkittsville, Maryland, where tourists have been showing up to see where the movie was filmed, and people have been selling merchandise to cash in on the movie's success. A town local, Jeff, with a checkered past, takes a group of tourists into the woods, all fans of the original movie in one way or another. There is a couple researching a book, Stephen and Tristan; a wiccan, Erica; and a goth girl, Kim. However, after a night of partying, the group wakes up to find their research destroyed, and their campsite trashed. With only their camera footage, the group heads to Jeff's home (an old abandoned factory in the woods), and begin searching the footage for clues as to what had happened the night before. Strange things begin happening, and the group begins to fear the worst. And then another group of tourists is found murdered in the woods, leaving the main group as the suspects...
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.
