14 intriguing and mysterious examples of online movie marketing

While foraging around the internet I noticed a wonderful thing. The Blair Witch Project website is still live.

I assumed that much like all movie marketing websites that are more than two years old, it would have been shut down or repurposed as a DVD product page.

Then again, The Blair Witch Project website is far more important and era-defining than any other traditional movie homepage with simple links to trailers and cast & crew biographies. 

In 1999 I was beginning to use the internet for the first time and I was part of the gullible first-wave of audience members who truly believed that The Blair Witch Project was a genuine documentary. Thanks to its website fleshed out with fake news reports, interviews, a history of the Blair witch and stills from the evidence room.
