At San Diego Comic Con, Lionsgate has officially pulled off the greatest reveal in recent horror cinema history!
Their upcoming film The Woods, which hits cinemas September 16th is actually a direct sequel to the 1999 icon indie horror film…….The Blair Witch Project.
With a new title ‘Blair Witch‘ this American found footage horror film is directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett.
The film follows;
A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realise the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.
Staring; James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson.
It will be interesting to see if this movie provides the same shock factor as it’s 1999 predecessor – time will tell !!!!!!
