Where in the Horror are they now? Heather Donahue!

HEATHER DONAHUE THEN : In 1999, one horror film changed the very nature of the genre. While the idea of a “found footage” flick wasn’t a new one (see CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST in 1980 or THE LAST BROADCAST in 1998, among others), it was THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT that thrilled audiences – or gave them motion sickness – and made over 248...
