Previously titled The Woods to keep it a true surprise for horror hounds, the film is actually the sequel to The Blair Witch Project. A little over 15 years later, Blair Witch takes fans back to the Black Hills Forest, where the legend continues to live.
This time a group of college students venture back 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.
Ahead of its release on September 16th, Lionsgate has unveiled a new poster and trailer for Blair Witch to help tide over the wait.
