We’re pumped about the new Blair Witch sequel. Advance reviews indicate the film is a straight forward sequel, no blurred lines between sequel, reboot or remake, and we’re certainly big on that approach. The fact that two genre masterminds are behind this one just makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside. The fact that the trailer looks certifiably gnarly also wins big points.
You can check out the trailer below, and be sure to keep yourself out of the woods and inside a theater come September 16th, when the film arrives.
Noted duo Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard are back together, with Barrett writing and Wingard directing. Blair Witch stars James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson. Roy Lee (The Ring, The Grudge, The Strangers, It), Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious), Keith Calder, and Jessica Wu (You’re Next, The Guest) produce.
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.
