BLAIR WITCH (formerly marketed under the faux-title, THE WOODS) is an upcoming found footage horror film directed by Adam Wingard, which he reunites with his You’re Next and The Guest screenwriter Simon Barrett. It was reveled at 2016 San Diego Comic-Con that the title of the film was actually Blair Witch and would be a sequel to 1999 horror hit The Blair Witch Project.
In the film, 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.
