Trivia

The entire film was shot on a handheld camera with all sound on-camera. No ADR was done except for the line, "They're alive! But I saw them die with my own eyes!" to cover up the goof of Tony Blair accidentally catching his crew in the frame after they had died in the previous scene. See more »

The Witch project spawned so many imitators. The joke of using British Prime Minister Tony Blair is the seed of this parody. They needed to take the idea further than that which they fail to do. During the course of the action as ideas dry up they use a series of smashing up a ghost town they have reached on the far side of the wood. Thus is staged with drunken insults at one another continued with m bad effects of breaking glass and wood occurring off screen giving the whole thing complete incompetence in terms of editing. This is hilarious. Thw Canadian director Martinez is a modern ED WOOD but know s his limitations and plays them up to comic effect. As a homage to Wood and his style, the group who are looking for the Tony Blair Witch are accompanied the whole time by Martinez wearing a Tony Blair mask. The Witch is in West Virginia where the gang confront rednecks: a Canadians comment on the supporters of Blair and Bush. This has received many bad reviews because of its technical incompetence. But its a guerrilla film and as such its the content and the parody that the director is interested in and eschews film technique.
