Out of nowhere, Lionsgate has announced the forthcoming horror movie ‘The Woods’ is actually Blair Witch—a brand-new, heretofore top-secret follow-up to the 1999 found-footage classic.
Created by Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, known for their work on ‘The Guest,’ the new film stars James Allen McCune (Showtime’s Shameless) as the brother of Heather, one of the doomed campers from the original film. He and some friends return to the woods in an attempt to find her and are soon being haunted by mysterious forces. Will they make it out of the woods? We will find out on September 16th, 2016 when the film hits theaters! Check out the trailer and official synopsis below!
Synopsis: 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.
