After the film The Woods premiered at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, it was revealed that the horror film, directed by Adam Wingard, is actually a sequel to The Blair Witch Project and is now titled Blair Witch. Sneaky buggers.
The found footage movie stars James Allen McCune as the brother of Heather Donahue’s character from the original 1999 horror film. Bringing along some friends, James ventures into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of his sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. Check out the ultra-creepy trailer above!
Blair Witch has a strong pedigree behind it. Wingard and writer Simon Barrett have collaborated on previous thriller projects, including the stellar 2013’s home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next and Dan Stevens-starring action-thriller The Guest.
Blair Witch will fly into theaters September 6.
