If you liked “The Blair Witch Project,” you’ll love this – Lionsgate says that “The Wood” is actually the sequel to the 1999 horror flick. In fact, the name itself is a fake-out. It’s actually called “Blair Witch.”
The studio invited fans and select press to a screening of the film at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. While the people were watching it, they changed the one sheets and banners in the lobby to the real name of the film.
Apparently “Blair Witch,” which was shot secretly last summer, picks up where the last two films left off – in the Burkittsville, Maryland woods where three filmmakers disappeared 20 years ago. In the latest one, four millennials venture into the Black Hills forest to film the weekend for a documentary class. One of them has spent his life searching for his older sister who disappeared with her film crew 20 years ago in these woods trying to uncover the Blair Witch legend.
Check out the trailer on the right. “Blair Witch” opens on September 16th.
