* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The group essentially wanted to dabble in the Blair witch legend themselves, and wanted to find research regarding the eponymous EldritchAbomination. Too bad the Blair Witch herself wishes to give them the cold, hard facts that they've been looking for, firsthand.

[[spoiler: The tie-in material ''The Blair Witch Project: A Dossier'' includes excerpts from Heather's journal, revealing that she secretly strongly identified with Elly Kedward, the historical figure who inspired the legend, and had been deliberately trying to invoke her and summon her for the film. Worked a bit too well.]]
