  Blair witch was not a real event or haunting. It was a low budget movie filmed in the Burkittsville area. There are, however, many locations that are known for paranormal activity close by. In particular are the Reno Monument Haunted Hill where your car is pulled up hill and a location where the dead Confederates were dumped down a well on the Wise Farm. Those are just a few of the many unusual stories associated with South Mountain.

In 1987 some friends and I were driving around one summer night up to Sugarloaf mountain. Then we made our way to Harper's Ferry and eventually up to Shepardstown Pike to the Antietam Cemetery next to the Antietam Battlefield. We didn't see much there that night, but I drove along the spooky Porter Town Road through the woods then through woods and over across the Appalachian Trail. We eventually ended up on Gapland Road where Mountain Church Road intersects it. My friend saw a sign for Burkittsville and told me to stop. (This was back in the late 80s long prior the Blair Witch movie.)

Burkittsville was just another little town out here. He told me to just sit in the road in neutral and turn off the car and the headlights. We sat there for maybe twenty minutes, and nothing happened. We were just chatting and listening to the radio. A couple of cars passed us, but everything was quiet. We were all just chatting away casually listening to the radio, thinking about where to go to next when the car just moved like something had pushed it hard, and I mean a lot. The whole chassis moved up and down on the suspension. At the same time the radio turned into this weird broken jumpy static. It had been a clear signal just before that. It was playing Def Leppard's Animal on the radio. I'll always remember that.

We swayed in the car so much I thought my car was hit by something, but there was no crash or noise. The car moved again, and then a third time and by this point we were all freaking out. I had had enough and started my car. The radio was suddenly all static with just noise. When I turned on my headlights they were bright, then dimmed, got bright again, and then dimmed again. Then slowly it became bright again. We drove forward towards Burkittsville, and there was this really thick fog all of a sudden all across the field to our left and over the road. It seemed to be pouring out of the thick woods on our right side. We all heard (more like felt) deep long thunder sounds shaking the car.
