Description (in English): 

Ally Farson is a whodunit film made to emulate the success of the Blair Witch Project. It's "an alledgedly true story of a female serial killer operating in 1999, that uses alleged documentary video footage and supposedly official websites of the police department as well as newsgroups on which "police officers" answer the questions of skeptical readers" (Simanowski 2014, p. 203). There are two movies in the series—Ally Farson: My Private Life and Ally Farson: On the Run.
