#SDCC16: Blair Witch Poster and Trailer Bring the Franchise Back to Life



New Breed Horror Director - Blair Witch

The biggest shock of Comic-Con this year, as we reported earlier, is that Adam Wingard’s The Woods is actually Lionsgate’s top secret project Blair Witch (review), a new sequel to the original 1999 found footage classic that almost nobody saw coming. Pretty cool, eh? Well now we’ve got the poster art and trailer for ya!

Blair Witch is set in Burkittsville, Maryland, and it centers on a group of college students on a camping trip who discover they are not alone. As it turns out, one of them is the brother of Heather Donahue, and he’s on the hunt for the sister who went missing back in 1999.

Check out the new art and trailer below!

Written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, the film stars James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson. Roy Lee (The Ring, The Grudge, The Strangers, It), Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious), Keith Calder, and Jessica Wu (You’re Next, The Guest) produce.

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.
