Blair Witch TV series

The Blair Witch Project was one of the most successful, and most effective, horror movies in film history. The multiple sequels? Well, that’s another story.

While follow-ups to Blair Witch haven’t been able to retain the magic of the first film, a return to Burkittsville isn’t out of the question. Original Blair Witch co-creator Eduardo Sanchez recently revealed that a possible Blair Witch TV series is in the works, bringing Elly Kedward and her scary stick figures from the big screen to the small.

Creep

The found footage horror film is, for the most part, dead. The cause of death was overexposure – after producers realized how quick and easy (and cheap!) it would be to create such films, the multiplexes became choked with them. You couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a found footage/faux documentary chiller (note: please don’t swing cats, alive or dead; it’s mean).

Yet every now and then, someone will resurrect the idea, for better or worse. Usually worse. Then there’s the Creep series. With Creep and Creep 2 (with the potential for a Creep 3), Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass have found clever new ways to reinvigorate the found footage subgenre. Better than that, they’ve found ways to actually make such a medium seem practical in terms of the story.

Spoilers follow.

The Blair Witch Project Alternate Ending

Update: We have embedded the alternate endings discussed below. Watch them at the bottom of the article.

This summer will mark 18 years since The Blair Witch Project took the box office by storm, becoming one of the first viral sensations at the cinema. Some audiences weren’t sure whether the movie they were watching was real or not thanks to a clever marketing campaign creating a fake ghost story online (when the internet wasn’t anywhere near as widely used or quite as untrustworthy) about a witch in Burkittsville, Maryland. The movie scared the hell out of people, especially the troubling ending. But it turns out that ending was almost drastically different and potentially not as frightening.

Blair Witch Ending

Unfortunately, Blair Witch was not quite the hit sequel that Lionsgate was hoping it would be. The film has only pulled in $16.5 million domestically and another $11.5 million internationally. That’s a bummer, because it’s actually quite the scary sequel that expands the mythology of The Blair Witch Project without ruining anything or revealing too much.

Now those of you have seen it may be thinking to yourself that the movie does reveal too much about the legend at the core of the horror franchise, mostly because it appears to reveal the titular spirit/monster/whatever. But writer Simon Barrett recently confirmed that we don’t actually see the Blair Witch on screen at all. Find out more below, but beware of spoilers. Read More »

Blair Witch Sequel

The second sequel took another 16 years to manifest, arriving in theaters just three days ago. While the franchise lay dormant for over a decade, it turns out that there were attempts to revive it in the years between Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 and Blair Witch, one of which was a prequel pitched by the same team that made the original movie.

The Blair Witch Project Honest Trailer

With a surprise sequel coming next week, there’s no better time to revisit The Blair Witch Project by way of an Honest Trailer. This is the movie that basically invented viral marketing online, and created the found footage horror subgenre way before Paranormal Activity debuted. However, since it’s an amateur production made to be an amateur production, there’s only so much that the folks at Screen Junkies can make fun of this time. Still, there are some chuckles to be had here and there.

blair witch viral marketing

17 years later, The Blair Witch Project isn’t just one of the most influential horror movies of all time – it’s a great film, a “found footage” movie that actually feels like an actual lost document. Unlike its often too stylized successors, it’s easy to understand why the original could actually inspire many viewers at the time to wonder if what they were watching was actually real. It’s as vague and incomprehensible as a really unfinished movie cobbled together out of footage shot by a couple of dead kids…which only makes it all the more frightening.

The new film in the series, simply titled Blair Witch, was never go inspire the mania that surrounded the first movie. However, keeping the identity of the film a secret until just two months before its release is the kind of impressive hucksterism that the horror genre needs. Speaking of impressive hucksterism, it looks like the Blair Witch viral marketing has begun in earnest, starting with a creepy YouTube video.
