The Blair Witch Project Co-Creator Eduardo Sanchez Talks Blair Witch



New Breed Horror Director - Blair Witch

Along with Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sanchez burst onto the scene with The Blair Witch Project, a film that broke a lot of rules and struck box office success. Now, with a new sequel on its way, Sanchez sat down with podcast The Found Footage Critic to offer his opinion on Blair Witch (review).

It’s just full-blast Blair Witch,” he explained. “It’s really creepy, and the last third is just crazy. It’s just all over the place. It just does not let you go, you know? I’m really happy to have been a part of it… it kind of progresses the found-footage genre a little bit, which I think is really cool.

He continues: “It’s really, really well grounded in the original. And I think that the fans of the original will get a lot out of it. It’s kind of a recognizable… it’s almost like you’ve been, like kind of a deja vu, but then it turns into just a — like I said, it kinda takes our film and blows the doors off and goes nuts with it in a really, really good way.

Written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, Blair Witch 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.
