*** It goes way beyond that. Some people hate the movie because they just don't believe in the supernatural at all, so consider the very premise ludicrous. Others hate it because they believe wholly in the supernatural, and complain the kids were totally ill-prepared for walking into haunted woods hunting a possible EldritchAbomination, making the kids TooDumbToLive. Others hate it just because they think it should have a motion sickness warning in the opening. People who love the movie love it's tense atmosphere, innovative (at the time) storytelling device, and the pure, distilled NothingIsScarier approach. But almost invariably, people either think this is one of the best horror movies ever made, or a complete waste of time.

* CompleteMonster: From the AlternateContinuity tie-in prequels, which have a SharedUniverse with ''VideoGame/{{Nocturne}}''), [[AGodAmI Hecaitomix]] is the evil spirit behind Elly Kedward and Rustin Parr, starting the Blair Witch legend, and [[GreaterScopeVillain the true source of the curse]]. Angered that he is no longer worshipped, Hecaitomix spent centuries torturing and killing, [[WouldHurtAChild children specifically]], with the goal of [[KillAllHumans wiping out the human race]] and ruling over what's left. Hecaitomix disemboweled a child, dubbed the "bleeding child", and [[AndIMustScream kept him alive]] to feed on before trapping the child in his realm. He also conquered a spiritual realm and turns the spirits there into demons. Hecaitomix has Robin Weaver abducted and attempts to possess her, and in the ritual traps children's souls and keeps mutilated victims alive and conscious. He bargains with a man to cure his blindness and turns him into another demon to do so. After Rustin Parr's killing spree, Hecaitomix possesses Kyle Brody to use him as a new vessel, before moving on to a local pastor and plots to abduct Mary Brown to subject her to the same fate as he did the bleeding child.

** There is some argument that audiences who love the movie and audiences who hate the movie are split split by those who live in suburban or rural areas and could relate more towards local urban legends, people disappearing, scary woods, and those who live in the city and wouldn't have any association with those things.

* LoveItOrHateIt: In spite of good reviews and having its fans, some didn't like the movie upon its release. In fact, the first film was nominated for Worst Picture by the Golden Raspberry Awards and Heather Donahue even won for Worst Actress.

* NightmareRetardant: If the film scared you, watch it with the DVD commentary and that'll quickly change. The producers all goof around discussing things like getting the rights for the groceries in the movie, Josh being "abducted" so early because he had to go to work on the third day of filming in the woods, and how the actors tried to jokingly catch them on camera when making noise in the middle of the night. The creepy image of the children's hand-prints on the halls of the old house is a bit hard to take seriously when the producers talk happily about bringing a gaggle of kids in in and just how much fun they had smearing their handprints all over the walls.
