WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Eager to uncover the mysteries surrounding his sister Heather’s disappearance twenty years prior, James Donahue (McCune) and a group of his friends venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland when they discover a connection to the legend of the Blair Witch. However, during the night, the group is visited by a menacing presence, and they discover that the Blair Witch might not only be real, but might be more sinister than they could have predicted…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Clearly taking a leaf out of 10 Cloverfield Lane’s book, Blair Witch is the surprise new follow-up to The Blair Witch Project after being marketed and advertised as another film entirely, which should mean that the scares should come quick and fast if it at all takes after its game-changing predecessor.
