After Blair Witch came The Last Broadcast, a similar "found footage" movie that was actually shot before Blair Witch, and may have even been the influence.
Now something similar has happened:
Paranormal Activity: shot in 2006
In Memorium: shot in 2005
Here's the offical website with short trailer:Synopsis:
Two months after being diagnosed with terminal cancer,
Dennis Wade, a struggling filmmaker, decides to document
his illness. Still free from symptoms, he and his girlfriend,
Lily, sublet a house and install motion-triggered security
Two days later...the cameras capture something unsettling:
Noises and movement in empty rooms. The next morning,
Dennis' cancer begins to advance at an inexplicable rate.
As Dennis worsens by the day, he and Lily discover the
horrific source of the disturbances. With his time running out,
they must make a decision: Leave the house and save her
life...or stay…and save his.
