For a film that started the trend of all found footage horror back at the end of the 90’s, is the long awaited sequel, the film to end the exhausted genre once and for all?

It seems so as the Blair Witch, a sort of sequel/remake as shocked the horror world by flopping badly at the box-office.  Taking in a mere £9.7m in its opening weekend, its a figure even lower than its much criticised and damn awful first sequel Book OF Shadows.

With our own David S, giving the film a glowing review and with the word of mouth, quite positive, the fact it as done so poorly as sent shockwaves around horror and maybe its the sign that fans are just simply tired of the endless cycle of people running around with a camera when in reality they should just put the damn thing down and get the fuck out of there.

With Blair Witch only being made for $5m, the film as made back its money and while the overall figure will no doubt rise in the next coming months, thanks to Worldwide sales and then eventually the home market, but with the film promising to do so much better, it seems Lionsgate will finally put an end to the bitch in the woods saga.

Just don’t expect that prequel anytime soon!

Ross HughesSince my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!

  1. but worldwide it is currently on $250million, which is 10 times it’s production and marketing costs… so, not really a flop.
