    Here are two films that can't be more different yet they are always linked together do to their similar use of first person POV and lost footage scenario. Pick your Winner.

    I don't see the relevence in the movies here other than the first person camera shot thing. I like both movies, but if I have to pick on I'm going with Blair Witch.

    Blair Witch. Not a super fan of it. Cannibal Holocaust would get my vote if they weren't killing animals for real in it, but that movie just becomes trash (in the bad way) when Deodato starts killing animals - like killing a gentle, giant sea turtle... WTF! - on screen. Deodato is an asshole.

    I quite enjoy CH but Blair Witch still manages to work for me after multiple viewings.

    I voted for Cannibal Holocaust. Blair Witch is a fine film though.

    Cannibal Holocaust. Its question of how involved does a documentary become of its subjects and the hypocrisy of "balanced journalism" make this a very satisfying film.

    Blair Witch Project on the other hand I found to be a snooze fest and one of the least effective horror films I've ever seen. Funny enough just today I was watching MadTV (believe it or not, it was the best thing on at the time) and they did a BWP spoof with the reporters being Ted Koppel, Bernard Shaw and Diana Sawyer. Funny as hell. It's also amusing to see a POV recording of POV recordings...

    Now, if we were to throw Man Bites Dog into the mix that would get my number 1 vote.

    Cannibal Holocaust packs a mean punch on so many levels. I don't recall much about The Blair Witch Project...

    CH. 1st reason: kick ass music score.
    2nd reason: social commentary
    3rd reason: gore
    4th reason: originality.

    BWP is a great film but has not that much of a repeat value, non?

    I'm not a fan of either of these films, but I just saw Cannibal Holocaust for the first time and it's not a movie, it's a geek show. Went with Blair Witch.
