We don’t care what anyone says… The Blair Witch Project is just as good today as it was when it was released in 1999. It honestly hasn’t aged a bit and is still pretty popular amongst the horror crowd despite its very vocal detractors.
A new documentary is on its way that explores this landmark film entitled The Woods Movie, which is set to premiere at FrightFest Glasgow. Russ Gomm directs.
In October 1997, a group of filmmakers ventured into the Maryland woods to produce a low-budget independent horror movie. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT would become a global phenomenon and began the “found footage” genre that remains a potent force today. Now, for the first time, you can see how that record-breaking groundbreaker came into being. From never-before-seen recordings of pre-production meetings, audition tapes, and test footage to the actual shooting, first preview screenings, and marketing at the Sundance Film Festival, all the key personnel guide you through the discussions and decisions that minted a shock sensation classic.
