Commentary

Notes

One possible influence on the whole camping portion of DH, including the trio's interactions and the influence of the locket, is the 1999 horror filmĀ The Blair Witch Project, which is about three young people who spend night after night in a tent in the woods while trying to reach safety and having extremely intense interpersonal conflicts - all while under the shadow of (what can at least be interpreted as) an evil magical force or presence of some sort. -BB
