Comic-Con 2016 Review: Blair Witch is the Sequel I’ve Been Waiting For

23 July 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s been less than a day since Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett threw me for a proverbial loop, and I am still sitting here absolutely stunned that their latest collaboration, formerly titled The Woods, was revealed to be Blair Witch, a second sequel to the highly successful 1999 landmark film, The Blair Witch Project. In a day and age where we seem to know practically everything about a movie often before we even see a first trailer, I must tip my hat to Lionsgate for making the unveiling of Blair Witch feel like a lovely homage to the brilliant marketing of the original film, because as obvious as it seems now, I simply did not see this coming.

Even better, this Blair Witch is everything you could possibly want and more if you’re a fan of Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick’s inaugural effort; it ties in seamlessly with »

For several years, Lionsgate had been searching for the right concept to reboot Blair Witch, »

Blair Witch Review: There's a Scary Secret Hiding in These Woods

23 July 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are very few things that mean as much, be it good or bad, to a horror fanatic than The Blair Witch Project. There is no doubt it was a monumental movie in the history of horror, and it started the found footage craze that is still going on today. Now, nearly 20 years later, Lionsgate has made a sequel to that movie, which was originally called The Woods, but what we now know is actually called Blair Witch, and it is without question the best sequel that you had no idea you needed or wanted.

The sequel picks up in 2016 and sticks to the timeline and the lore established by the original movie. Blair Witch centers on a group of teenagers who decide to venture into the Black Hills Forest, where they are trying to figure out what happened to Heather (the girl from the first Blair Witch) nearly 20 years ago, »

‘Blair Witch’: How Filmmakers Were Able To Keep The Sequel Under Wraps For 3 Years

23 July 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Friday night at Comic-Con, horror fans were surprised to find out that Adam Wingard’s new project is an official sequel to “The Blair Witch Project.” Previously titled “The Woods” to throw people off, “Blair Witch” stars James Allen McCune as the brother of Heather Donahue, original character from the first film, who sets out to find out what happened to his missing sister. The movie was shown for the first time at the convention.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the film’s helmer talked about how they kept this project a secret for so long.

“‘The Woods’ was our working title,” said Wingard. “When we signed on to it, we knew that [the name] was eventually going to be changed. To us, it wasn’t even going to be part of the marketing. But I think Lionsgate made a really smart decision, using that.”

Adam Wingard’s The Woods Has Been A Secret Blair Witch Sequel All Along, Watch Nerve-Shredding New Trailer

23 July 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Consider the pitch: A group of college students uproot and plot course for their nearby woodland for a camping trip only to discover they are not alone. Toss in Pov camerawork and it’s all but certain that said project will draw comparisons to The Blair Witch ProjectEduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick’s micro-budget masterstroke that ushered in a new genre of horror back in ’99 – that is, unless said project has been in the works as a Blair Witch sequel all along.

Pulling that rug out from just about everyone was director Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) who, along with screenwriter Simon Barret, had been toiling away at an eerie new horror flick known as The Woods. Unlike, say, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Wingard’s bait-and-switch actually involved rolling out a full-blown trailer for The Woods, which really makes this reveal all the more satisfying.

Adam Wingard’s Surprise Sequel ‘Blair Witch’ Gets New Trailer

23 July 2016 5:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a Hollywood marketing machine that dates films half-a-decade (or more) in advance with constant updates reminding you to be excited for their latest property, how do you genuinely surprise an audience? Lionsgate, perhaps taking a note from Paramount’s 10 Cloverfield Lane, has revealed at Comic-Con that the next film from You’re Next and The Guest director Adam Wingard, previously titled The Woods, is in fact an entirely different beast.

That’s right: it’s actually a surprise sequel to The Blair Witch Project. EW has profiled the making of the film, which follows James Allen McCune‘s character, the brother of Heather Donahue’s character from the original hit back in 1999. “They knew they wanted it to be a continuation of the first film, using Heather’s brother,” says Wingard. “That was what they came to us with.”

He adds, “From there, we were left to our own devices to figure it out. »

Adam Wingard's upcoming horror flick The Woods is actually a sequel to The Blair Witch Project, it's been revealed...

Adam Wingard - who directed the horror movies V/H/S, V/H/S/2, The Guest and You’re Next - told everyone he was making a film called The Woods. But really he was making Blair Witch, the second sequel to legendary found footage flick The Blair Witch Project.

Wingard and Lionsgate revealed all this at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, as well as releasing this official synopsis...

Coming Distractions: Comic-Con screening reveals Adam Wingard’s The Woods is actually a secret Blair Witch sequel

22 July 2016 9:58 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The original The Blair Witch Project was a triumph of marketing as much as anything else. So consider it a tribute that The Guest director Adam Wingard pulled off a legitimately great piece of misdirection tonight, when a Comic-Con screening revealed that his previously teased backwoods monster thriller The Woods was, in fact, a sequel to the 1999 horror phenomenon, titled simply Blair Witch.

The trailer for the movie shows James Allen McCune as the supposed brother of the original movie’s ill-fated Heather, going off on his own found-footage adventure with his own crew of largely unlikable friends. (At least handheld camera technology seems to have gotten less relentlessly unpleasant in the last 17 years.) Blair Witch definitely looks more overtly supernatural than the original, what with all the barely seen creatures running around in the woods. Hopefully it’ll be able to avoid the over-the-top excess that made ...

The Woods Trailer Promises the Scariest Movie of the Year

11 May 2016 4:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year there seems to be one horror film that can rise above the endless stream of low budget, middle of the road, run of the mill horror flicks that studios push out constantly and this year, Adam Wingard's The Woods looks to be that film, and the first teaser trailer for the film has dropped, and it is promising "a new beginning for horror films." A bold statement, sure. But the critical praise for the film that the first half of the trailer focuses on seems to back that up.

Though details of the film have largely been kept under wrap, the Lionsgate production is said to feature a group of college students who go out camping in the wilderness and discover that they aren't alone, which is what the trailer heavily teases. Wingard has already made a name for himself in the horror genre in recent years, »

A horror film to watch out for, here's the trailer for The Woods, from the director of The Guest...

A brand new film from Adam Wingard is already something that should be saluted, we feel. Thus far, he’s helmed two of the best horror movies of recent times, in the shape of You’re Next and The Guest. And now we learn that his next endeavour is The Woods, and it’s coming to cinemas this September.

The movie stars James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Wes Robinson and Corbin Reid. And a first trailer for the film has been released. Take a look at this, and see what you reckon…

First Trailer for New Horror Thriller 'The Woods' From Adam Wingard

10 May 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"A nightmare of classic proportions." Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett's new horror thriller The Woods, with a quote from Brad Miska saying its one of the "scariest movies ever made". The film is about a group of college students on a camping trip that discover they are not alone. This is supposed to introduce a new creepy horror character, which you'll barely get a glimpse of in this footage if you look close. The cast includes James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson. This could actually be pretty good, as these two filmmakers are fantastic and always deliver. I do want to see more from this, but I'm intrigued already.

The Woods Beckon In Haunting First Trailer For Adam Wingard’s Horror

10 May 2016 1:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Set against a spine-chilling, almost melancholic rendition of “Every Breath You Take,” Lionsgate has premiered the haunting first trailer for The Woods, an all-new horror thriller hatched by the creative minds behind The Guest and You’re Next.

That’s Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett, who looked to have cooked up the camping trip from hell in today’s first teaser. Opening with serene establishing shots of the great outdoors, the tension gradually begins to build and build until we are introduced to a “group of college students on a camping trip who discover they are not alone.”

Hardly a horror premise to reinvent the wheel, of course, but the terrifying imagery that follows – not to mention those gruesome Pov shots – is enough to fuel nightmares right up until the movie’s September debut. Toss in some admittedly hyperbolic review quotes and there’s every chance The Woods could »
