      DMelkin,
      <<Sci-Fi's tv program is well
      done and a brillant advertisement of the movie.>>
      I thought the Sci-Fi advert was brillantly done as well, but I still think
      that it would have been much better if there really had been a Blair Witch.
      Thank you for the warm reception of my web page.
      Love live Bloom County!
      Ron

        What I am saying: They should have taken on an existing legend, and made
        a movie from it.
        When you are trying for reality, and if one wants to add more tension to
        a movie such as this, wouldn't it be better to find an already exising
        legend?
