I'm sitting here watching Primetime Live and they're showing a very interesting video that some kids made.

Go here to read about it:  (there are about 3 pages in it so make sure you read them all to get the whole story)

http://abcnews.go.com/sections/Primetime/US/buried_alive_031106-1.html

What do you think?
Do you think the girl was acting or do you think that those guys really kidnapped her and told her they were going to bury her alive as part of a horrible prank?

I saw both sides of the story and I do believe that the girl was acting.  Both her & the filmmaker were interviewed seperately.
But it was so realistic and she got so caught up in it, she eventually blurred the lines between fantasy & reality.  My opinion of course.
The guy who filmed it was very honest in his interview I thought ...he got an Oscar award winning performance from this girl who later filed charges against him & his friends because they made it so realistic.

That's what the kids wanted to do all along...make a low budget film of sheer psychological terror and they suceeded.

The main question that was posed was if the boys were just making a film and the girl went along with it or were they just plain f**ked up and did this to torment her.

And I thought I was the only one who saw it, but I guess not. You know, it's hard for me to say. At first, I thought the girl was forced to do it when listening to her interview. And then when we get to hear the "director" speak and give his say, all of a sudden I started to understand what he was saying. But it's hard to me to come to a conclusion on this one, I need to think about this one a bit more.

I'm just glad that Primetime Live didn't go into a whole "It's all the horror film's fault" thing. If they did, I would have went ballistic!

Didn't catch the Primetime Live segment, but I have seen and read about this same vid before.  I don't believe that she was kidnapped in any way.  I believe that she wholeheartedly went along with it, but didn't expect it to be as....harsh as it was.  Or, maybe even as Ash said, she might have blurred the lines of reality.  

Hell, after a while, a few of the actors in the Blair Witch Project began to think it was real.

I heard about this a while back and don't know what to think.

Does anyone know of a site where you can watch or download a complete copy of the video? The news shows only air portions of it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
