The Haunted Sponge is a new horror blog, but they’ve already posted some great theories and reviews like…
The Hidden Killer in The Blair Witch Project
The YouTube channel The Film Theorists recently released a video suggesting that there is nothing supernatural, no witch, in The Blair Witch Project, and that the events of the movie are actually a plot of the characters Josh and Mike to murder Heather.

Not only does it provide an interesting twist that James has actually been chasing Lisa this whole time, it struck me as interesting that Lisa and Heather could easily be confused. Both women were first and foremost interested in documenting events in the woods. James has been so obsessed with finding Heather his whole life, is it really any wonder he gravitated toward Lisa… Continue reading here!
