It has been sixteen years since the last sequel, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000), was released and so far not so good for the new Blair Witch as it faces a very underwhelming reception.
Some are saying that, in summary, this is like The Force Awakens as a Blair Witch movie. Why? Because it follows the same story structure as the original while going bigger in order to adapt to the times. Nevertheless, I’m still excited about seeing it.
Interestingly, Director Adam Wingard has said that, while the first film is about being lost in the woods this one is about being chased. Good to hear that these guys will be able to navigate. Another funny fact; Wingard used air horns to get the perfect jump-scares out of his actors so be sure to look out for this authenticity when viewing.
