Formerly marketed under The Woods, Blair Witch is an upcoming horror film directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett. The film is a direct sequel to The Blair Witch Project, which shocked audiences back in 1999, following a group of hikers in a remote forest filled with danger.
“A group of college students ventures into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James Donahue’s sister, Heather, who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch after her disappearance 15 years prior. 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.”
A new trailer for the film was released yesterday as part of the San Diego Comic-Con.
