Horror Flick The Woods is Actually a New Blair Witch Movie

Posted July 23, 2016 by Eoin Friel in Trailers

Well this came out of nowhere; the new horror movie The Woods which is due to come out in September has a new name: Blair Witch. Yes, the franchise we all thought was long dead is in fact very much alive and EW have a new trailer which you can watch below.

EW states “are you ready for a trip back to one of the horror genre’s most feared woods? EW can reveal that Lionsgate’s upcoming film The Woods is actually a new, and previously secret, sequel to horror classic The Blair Witch Project, arriving in theaters on Sept. 16. Titled, simply, Blair Witch, the found footage movie stars James Allen McCune (Showtime’s Shameless) as the brother of Heather Donahue’s character from the original 1999 horror film, who sets out to discover what happened to his long-missing sister.

Blair Witch is directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett, whose previous collaborations include 2013’s home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next and the following year’s Dan Stevens-starring action-thriller The Guest. The film was shot secretly in Vancouver last year but has actually been hiding in plain sight under the name of The Woods.”

PLOT: 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.
