Adam Wingard’s The Woods actually being the third Blair Witch Project film surprised and excited horror fans all over the world, and now we have the film’s first TV spot to keep up that excitement. It’s short and sweet but really gives the impression that this will be very much like the first film and not the much derided second.
Synopsis: 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.
Blair Witch is written by Simon Barrett and stars James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson. It hits cinemas September 16.
