Judging by the new trailer for BLAIR WITCH, I can only assume that Hollywood has run through all the found footage narratives they could possibly think of, so now they are revisiting the first successful one--unfortunately for me and so many others who've been bullied into silence because the film has been so appallingly immortalized. (I'll start a support group for all of us soon).
It's been 17 years since The Blair Witch Project became one of the most top-grossing independent films of all time, and it clear just won't die. A group of millenials have found themselves in the middle of the woods again with a big, bad--and apparently still invisible after all these years--villain. more in the 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.
I still don't know what "the legend' is, but whatev. Check out the trailer:
