*** Not just ''any'' house, but the basement of the Rustin Parr house. The footage was also described as having been in there for years if not decades. ''[[EldritchAbomination The Blair Witch]]'' is a LOT more powerful than a mere human sorcerer.

* Alright, so I haven't seen the film and it's been a while since it was released, but it's been bugging me for a long time. The entry on TheOtherWiki says that the serial child killer killed his victims in pairs. Then why is the total number of children he killed an odd number (seven)?

** the forest itself didn't keep people leaving--the main characters were very poorly equipped to go on any sort of hike, and as such didn't even need any supernatural influence to get themselves killed. Chances are that the supernatural influence liked to pick off small groups instead of large ones.

*** Also, the backstory of the movie is that the footage was found underneath the foundation of a 100 year old house by a college archeology group. Clearly, time and space in those woods is being messed with.

** The forest doesn't trap ''everyone'' that enters. In many of the previous killing incidents there have been search parties looking for missing/murdered people who got home fine (with one notable exception being the Coffin Rock murders). Not to mention that the killings are spaced at least a few decades apart. The forest has its own rules on how it operates and obviously not by any human logic.
** The whole thing wasn't real to begin with.

*** Presumably whatever force killed them is supposed to be sentient, and likely made the decision to let someone find the video and bring it back to the world at large. It apparently wants people to know what it's doing, given that it requires Parr to leave one of his victims alive and reveal what he did and why he did it before it leaves him alone.

*** So somehow, the group that discovered the footage just wandered into a building, downstairs, then brought it back to civilization?
