Review: Exists

6 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Plot: Five friends travel to an isolated area of the woods rumored to be lorded over by Bigfoot. Using dozens of cameras to document their experience, the group finds out the the legendary creature is all too real. Review: For a horror geek, there's something undeniably cool about seeing Eduardo Sanchez - co-director of The Blair Witch Project - wander back into the forest for a different kind of lost-in-the-woods thriller, presumably to show all of these found-footage pretenders how it's »

Exists Review

19 October 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between Bobcat Goldthwait’s Willow Creek and Eduardo Sánchez’s Exists, Bigfoot is having quite a horrifying year. In Willow Creek, the legendary monster goes the “mumblecore” route for some simmering, slow-burn chills, while Exists goes full creature-feature by bringing an animalistic primitiveness to the hairy best. Defying most horror rules, Sánchez wastes no time introducing in Sass to horror audiences that are yearning for some backwoods survival horror. As far as found footage scares go, Sánchez gains major points for bringing intensity in a fast and furious manner, never bullshitting his fans with cheap decoys or distorted jump-scares. Exists delivers Exactly as prompted, being a polar opposite to Goldthwait’s subtle tension. If Bigfoot is your jam yet twenty-minute-long-tent-rustlings aren’t your thing, go with Exists on this one – you’ll thank me while you’re washing your blood-soaked clothes.

The plot of Exists isn’t very complicated, nor »

The Blair Witch Project Almost a Different Ending

17 October 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

One of the greatest things about The Blair Witch Project was its simplicity. There were no big special effects and there was hardly any blood. The finale of the film simply featured a guy standing in the corner of a basement, and it was the most terrifying thing ever. I remember when I first saw the film the chills that it sent down my spine were intense. It was brilliantly effective filmmaking. 

It's kind of funny to hear now that when Artisan Entertainment got a hold of the movie back in the late 1990s, the first thing that they wanted to change was that ending, which would have been a terrible mistake! During an interview with Bloody Disgusting at Denver’s Mile High Horror Film Festival, Blair Witch directors Dan Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez revealed what all went down. The article doesn't specify who said the following, but here's what thy revealed:

The Blair Witch Project Almost Had A Completely Different Ending

16 October 2014 4:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The very end of The Blair Witch Project is one of the best finales in modern horror. There's no gore, there's no CGI, and there's no monster: you just see a guy standing in a corner, and it's the most terrifying thing ever. Its genius comes from the mix of simplicity and subtle setup, and it's incredibly effective. So, naturally, when Artisan Entertainment got a hold of the movie all the way back in the late 1990s, it was the first thing that they wanted to change. This bit of trivia was recently revealed by directors Dan Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, who recently attended the Denver.s Mile High Horror Film Festival and took the time to sit down for an interview with Bloody Disgusting. Discussing the end of their debut feature film, they not only revealed that Artisan wanted to change the ending when they signed on as a »

How The Blair Witch Project Changed Movies - Short Doc

15 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When The Blair Witch Project first came out in 1999, I completely gave into the hype. I was a fan of horror movies, and this one seemed completely different and intriguing. One of the main things it had going for it was the online marketing campaign, and how a lot of people couldn't tell if the movie was real or not. I remember discussing all of this with my dad and my brother as we were waiting in a long ass line to see the movie. Of course, after the movie was over, we realized that it obviously wasn't real, but it was still an incredibly fun movie going experience.

The film became the most profitable movie of all time… so far. It was made on a budget of only $25,000, and the film went on to gross $250 million worldwide. The Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez-directed film also opened the door to found footage movies. »

Take a Look Back at 'The Blair Witch Project' As a Moment That Changed the Movies

8 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The holiest month of the year has arrived: October. That means we’re in full spooky mode, so when we spotted a Filmmaker Iq “Moments That Changed Movies” segment about Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s The Blair Witch Project, we got a little excited. The 1999 film changed the horror landscape forever, using a found-footage style that helped pioneer an entire subgenre of shaky-cam cinema. Referencing invented mythology with real-life occult and urban legends, The Blair Witch Project launched a successful viral marketing campaign—one of the first to exist, really—using a website that presented a backstory about the actors as factual info. In this video interview, we hear from the filmmakers and stars of the movie. Sánchez...

Something’s On The Road In Newest Clip From Bigfoot Horror Film Exists

3 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the cinematic calendar, the weeks preceding Halloween are often prime real estate for new horror outings. The spooky season has been proven (scientifically!) to increase a filmmaker’s chances of turning their low budget offering into a bona fide box office smash. But hey, it’s not like Eduardo Sanchez needs any pointers in that department, as one half of The Blair Witch Project team returns to found footage terror with Exists.

The tone and style of the movie look poised to recreate the atmospheric chills from Sanchez’s debut. Keeping the urban legend perspective, this time around a bunch of kids head into the Texan hills for a camping trip. We’ve all seen The Cabin In The Woods, which gloriously deconstructed this exact type of scenario, so it should come as no surprise that something terrifying befalls the group.

‘The Blair Witch Project’ – seeing is believing, but hearing is much more persuasive

3 October 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Blair Witch Project

Directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez

Written by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez

1989, USA

Three film students go out to Burkittsville, MD to make a documentary about the legend of the Blair Witch, who supposedly haunts the area. Heather (Heather Donahue) is the director, and accompanying her on the trip is cameraman Josh (Joshua Leonard) and Mike (Michael Williams) does the sound. As they go about asking the locals about the witch they get a tip about the cemetery up in the hills where the seven children who disappeared after outing Elly Kedward as a witch are supposedly buried.

Once on the trail Heather, Mike and Josh soon find the cemetery after a brief detour from Heather’s map and are ready to call it quits for the weekend after getting the footage.  With the supplies finished after only three days, food is short and tempers are short. »

Fantastic Fest 2014: V/H/S/ Viral Is Better Than Its Predecessors [Review]

1 October 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

When I reviewed the first entry in the V/H/S series, I didn't have a whole lot of nice things to say. Too long and too dumb, it felt like what you'd get if you gave cameras and a shoddy script to a bunch of smash-happy frat boys. V/H/S 2 (review) was a marked improvement, and featured segments from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto, Jason Eisener, and Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sanchez that suggested this anthology might actually be headed somewhere. V/H/S Viral, comprised of three shorts and a wraparound (a fourth short by Todd Lincoln has been excised from early screenings, and I'm not sure if or when it'll end up in a later version), is the third and latest in the series, an [Continued ...] »

Fantastic Fest 2014 Review: V/H/S Viral Catches On

29 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

V/H/S brought us stories from Ti West, Adam Wingard, Glen McQuaid, and Joe Swanberg, among others. V/H/S 2 gave us far superior films from Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto, Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sanchez, Jason Eisener, Simon Barrett, and Adam Wingard (again). For the third entry of the franchise, V/H/S Viral delivers another mixed bag, with entries from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, Marcel Sarmiento, Nacho Vigalondo, Gregg Bishop, and Todd Lincoln, whose segment "Gorgeous Vortex" was cut from the film for mysterious reasons. The series' most challenging aspect remains its wrap-around segments, which serve to loosely link the stories together. For an anthology, one would assume that these would be among the strongest in the film; sadly, that's not the case. "Vicious Circles" features...

Be Very Afraid Of Sasquatch In New Clip From Found Footage Horror, Exists

26 September 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Halloween’s nearly upon us and the folks at Lionsgate are gearing up to scare us all silly. It’s been fifteen years since newbie filmmakers Eduardo Sanchez and Dan Myrick brought us The Blair Witch Project, and the found footage genre persists. There’s been the inevitable cash-ins on the pair’s scary witch fable, but nothing has bettered it in the shakycam department. Could Sanchez’s next feature, Exists, be the film to beat it?

If audience response is anything to go by, there’s a good chance that it will. Sanchez’s post-Blair career has been dotted with supernatural horrors and a jaunt into TV. Now he’s steering his work back to what made him a household name – people lost in the woods. Specifically, a bunch of friends who venture out into the Texan plains for a fun, carefree weekend. Their plan to kick back and »

Horror Channel have announced their latest rund of UK television premieres for October, including three outstanding supernatural thrillers: Under The Bed, Steven C.

After accepting sanctuary from the family of the car that hit her, Cassie starts hallucinating that terrifying strangers are following her. Is it concussion or second sight?
