I enjoyed BWP for what it was. The whole thing was built on a gimmick, but for me that's what made it work. Because of that, I felt it had a lot in common with the exploitation films of yesteryear--much more than the majority of horror films released in the last decade if not longer. But since it was mostly gimmick, the movie doesn't have much staying power for me. And I agree, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST was first, and better. What tickled me was that one of the major news magazines [either TIME or NEWSWEEK, can't remember which] mentioned CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST in a cover story on the Blair Witch phenomenon.
