FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: BLAIR WITCH

Synopsis: 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 realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

At last! After 17 years we finally have a sequel to The Blair Witch Project. Director Adam Wingard revealed at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con that his latest film Blair Witch, formerly under the faux title ‘The Woods‘ is indeed the sequel to the 1999 film. I know a lot of you out there hate the found footage genre and possibly The Blair Witch Project; as for myself I loved the film and am definitely looking forward to Blair Witch and believe that Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest) is just the man to make it worthwhile. Written by Simon Barrett and starring Corbin Reid, Wes Robinson and Valorie Curry, Blair Witch hits theaters September 16, 2016. Check out the trailer and poster ↓.

  1. My best friend saw Blair Witch on TV and does not rate it. But my memory of seeing it at the movies was one of sheer terror. Because of the video quality of the film in the dark it reminded me of trudging through the bushes at night on Scout camps and how things could appear questionable in the dark. The pacing in that film is fantastic with a very slow build-up and even what you could describe as characters brought to life by excellently relaxed natural performances from the cast. It makes sense to end where it does but there are questions raised by it that might now be finally answered. Having a character link back to the original makes sense. However the film quality is so much better and there seems to be special effects being used. What was so effective about the original is the total opposite of that. Tree branches looked like something in the distrance in the original Blair Witch. How do you feel after watching the trailer?

  2. I’m looking forward to this one. I still remember watching the original when it first came out and being deeply unnerved by it.

  3. “Yo, she bitch, let’s go!” Reminds me of a serious version of any of the Evil Dead movies. I will take those over this one any day of the week. Never cared munch for the original either. I just didn’t get the hype.

    • Perfectly fine, perfectly fine. I liked the film and look forward to this one but I understand the genre is not a popular one. I welcome and respect every comment and opinion; all I ask is that no one be rude, which you definitely have never been and as far as I can recall no one else has, either.

      • I honestly just wanted to use that line. Love me some Army of Darkness. I don’t dislike the found footage genre – Cloverfield is great, but the Blair Witch just wasn’t all that scary. Maybe they made this one better in that way.
