According to Blair Witch legend, a book was published in 1824 called The Blair Witch Cult. There have been many written accounts of witchcraft through the ages, such as The Munich Manual of Demonic Magic, also known as The Necromancer’s Manual. This famous manuscript, currently held in the Bavarian State Library in Munich, is a grimoire (a book of spells and incantations) from the 15th century. The textbook of magic includes three major types: Illusionist, Psychological, and Divinatory. The manual is a sourcebook for summoning demonic spirits.

A photo taken that day has four children in it. No one knows who the fourth kid is, but she looks like a ghost. What’s more, it was revealed that a 13-year-old girl drowned in that very spot 100 years before the photo was taken.

The case remains unsolved.

      A serial killer appears in Blair Witch mythology, which tells the tale of a hermit who, in 1941, under instruction from the witch, lured seven children to the woods and murdered them. When the town found out, they hung him. There have been several serial killers of children throughout history, and the Blair Witch child serial killer was probably based as much on fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel as it was any real person, but still, the story is rooted in reality. Luis Garavito, for instance, traveled between Columbia and Ecuador, killing at least 138 boys between the ages of 6 and 16 with a screwdriver or knife. He also raped and molested his victims.

      The central premise of The Blair Witch Project is the disappearance of a few young people. The film is framed as found footage discovered as part of a police investigation into the disappearances. Mysterious disappearances are real tragedies, and all too common.

      Take the unsolved disappearance of college student Maura Murray. On February 9, 2004, Murray alerted her employer and professors she was taking a week off for a family emergency, though no such emergency existed. She left the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, drove north, and crashed her car in Woodsville, NH.

      A bus driver saw the crash and stopped. He reports seeing a young woman, not visibly bleeding but cold and shivering, who asked him not to contact the police. Since he didn’t have cell service, he went home, and called the police from there. When police arrived, the car was abandoned and Maura was nowhere to be found. Despite an extensive search, neither her nor her body were discovered.
