And it doesn't really lead them to the family. It was more a matter of wrong place, wrong time.
OK, youths who hear a story and go check it out and end up in trouble.

In TCM, they hear about the grave robbers (who were the family) and when they go to that area to check on their grandfather's grave, they eventually fall into the clutches of the family by being in the area where they robbed graves.

IN BWP, the filmmakers go to check out the legend of Blair Witch, which eventually leads them to the Blair Witch by being in the area where the Blair Witch legends happened.

Sorry, shouldn't have used investigate. I am saying there are similarities on how the stories are set up. Similarities, definition of similar - Related in appearance or nature; alike though not identical.
