We gave it a B

For those who are still traumatized by this jerky, badly lit cinematic phenomenon, we’ll reiterate: It’s only a movie. But you wouldn’t know it by flipping through this rambling, Artisan-sanctioned mishmash of interview transcripts, press clippings, and snapshots that purport to tell the back story of the three film students who disappeared in the Maryland woods. With everything from dorky baby pictures of the ill-fated trio to sniveling excerpts from Heather’s diary (”I am sorry for what happened to your sons and to my beautiful babycakes”), the tale isn’t quite as menacing in print — though the sheer amount of seemingly factual information will satisfy even the most frenzied Blair fan. Just don’t read it while standing in a corner.
