A select few members of the horror press community were invited out to a venue in California this weekend at Comic Con International to view the trailer for anew film called ‘The Woods.’
Well to all of our surprise, this little film ended up being a direct sequel to the original Blair Witch Project. Here is a synopsis of the film…
“A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.”
Now I’m not sure if ‘Book of Shadows’ (the first sequel to the original film) is still canon or not, but I’ll be sure to update you all very soon. Check out the trailer below!
