Three student documentary filmmakers set out in October 1994 to investigate the myth of the Blair Witch, Elly Kedward, who was convicted of witchcraft in 1785 and exiled from the township of Blair in northern Maryland. One year later, all of Kedward's accusers and half the village's children vanished, causing the survivors to flee. Between 1824, when Burkittsville is founded on the Blair site, and 1941, mysterious disappearances and horrific murders occur. During their shoot, Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard, and Michael Williams disappear in the Black Hills Forest as well. Despite an intensive search, the trio cannot be found. Then, in 1995, anthropology students make an unexpected discovery while excavating beneath the foundation of a 100-year-old cabin � all of the crew's film, videotape, and recordings. These are eventually turned over to Haxan Films to piece together the students' final days.

Dark and forbidding, Hill House was built 130 years ago and has been filled with stories of tragedy which over time turned into ominous tales of death that left the house uninhabited ... or so it seemed.

A century later, Dr. David Marrow (Liam Neeson), intrigued by the mansion's storied past, has drawn three people to Hill House, for what he tells them is a sleep disorder study: Theo (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a woman of the world whose outward bravado isn't all it seems; Luke (Owen Wilson), the cynic of the group, who is the first to suspect that Dr. Marrow's study has nothing to do with sleeping; and the most sensitive of them, Nell (Lill Taylor). From the moment of her arrival, Nell seems strangely drawn to the mansion ... and the attraction is frighteningly mutual.

Before long, the ghosts of the past manifest themselves in terrifying visitations that might explain why the group was warned that no one stays in the house in the night...

A wickedly colorful, twisted comedy, Drop Dead Gorgeous probes the heart of a small Minnesota town where a fictional teen beauty pageant has unleashed a fury of very unladylike behavior. Here in the hallowed American heartland -- amidst the cow fields, pork sausage factories and Lutheran churches, going after the tiara is not just a fairy-tale dream: it's all-out war. Everyone involved in the contest -- mothers, daughters, boyfriends -- knows only one thing counts and it isn't talent, physical fitness, current events or sportsmanship. It's being Number One. Drop Dead Gorgeous takes a wild ride through the All-American, win-at-all-costs philosophy while drawing an indelible satire of growing up in the heartland of hypocrisy. Like the contestants in Mount Rose, the film crosses over the line into its own unique brand of outrageous, biting comedy that spares no one.
