3. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

It is hard to pinpoint the malevolent force in The Blair Witch Project. Instead, the viewer is left to watch as the protagonists appear terrified of the evil presence that lurks in the woods, without the exact nature of the presence ever being defined. Your own imagination can freak you out more than actual images can. To make matters spookier, a brilliant campaign of rumors hinted that the scenes shown were actual found-footage. Whether this was true or not, it is hard not to share the horror and confusion experienced by the folks in the film.
