‘Blair Witch’: Video and Images From the Comic-Con Screening Q+A!

Last night was one of the biggest and most impactful nights in the history of horror. For months Lionsgate has been touting their new horror movie, The Woods, which turned out to be the second sequel to the 1999 The Blair Witch Project.

During the screening, The Woods‘ identity in theater and online was revealed to be Blair Witch. We broke the news mid-screening, while also sharing my review as well.

In fact, Lionsgate changed all the theater decor while fans were figuring out for themselves in the first ever public screening. Below we have a video that details the changes, while we also have photos and video selects from the Q+A with: Director Adam Wingard, Screenwriter Simon Barrett, Producer Keith Calder, and Producer Jess Calder.

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.

James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson star.

Blair Witch will destroy audiences on September 16th.

    Blair Witch will destroy Brads’ Credibility on September 16th.

    There fixed that last line for you, you’re welcome man.

    • Khy

      LMFAO. I can’t wait for this movie but that is hilarious haha

      • Braker

        Credibility destroyed again, you mean…

  • Grimphantom

    Someone’s making such a big deal out of this……

    “one of the biggest and most impactful nights in the history of horror”
    Please, you don’t know the meaning of those words and give it a rest of making this like it’s biggest hype in horror history…..it’s a total joke.

    • CB Punk

      Agreed the first one honestly wasn’t all that great.

      • James

        The first one was awful. The marketing was awesome but the film itself was terrible.

        • Personally I love the first one. It’s one of my favorite horror movies of all time. What’s scarier then being lost and alone in the woods with a witch?

          • James

            The concept is wonderfully scary!! The movie just wasn’t.

          • To be honest, it’s one of the few movies that creeped me out and trust me, I’ve seen em all.

          • CB Punk

            It never really creeped me out but then again neither did The Exorcist. I just don’t understand why he’s making such a big deal out of it. I can already imagine it’s going to be a lot of style and no substance. It may end up being ok but nothing game changing like he’s screaming about.

          • Khy

            Because he’s getting paid a big juicy check to whore It out. I’m super pumped but make no mistake- that has nothing to do with Brad’s orgasms lol

          • CB Punk

            I’m more excited for Death House, which seems to get no mention on this site.

          • Khy

            I haven’t heard of it. Checking it out

          • CB Punk

            The Expendables of Horror is what they’re dubbing it as. It’s the last thing Gunner Hensen was working on before he passed.

          • CB Punk

            And honestly the Three Blair Witch games are more intense than the movie.

          • J Jett

            CB, thank you for bring DEATH HOUSE to my/our attention! i definitely plan on watching it! such a icon full cast!

          • J Jett

            CB Punk, HOLY FUCK!! the cast to Death House (i’d never heard of it before i read your comment) is fucking awesome!

          • CreepShowTwo

            Ya because they wanna hump that zombie trash 31, death house was announced at the same time, and went under the radar with all of the zombie shenanigans. Lokking forward to it, i rewatched zombies halloween, doing a review,and i hate that movie, i dont remeber why i liked it, or thought i did. So i have no intrest in his future projects. I realized my error. But yea…death house

          • J Jett

            LOL. 🙂

          • Grimphantom

            Not really watching the witch…..lets be honest, we ALL wanted to see the witch and we got screwed lol.

        • CB Punk

          Agree on this point as well the marketing was what made the movie but once it came out it was like meh. I akin it to the thing Family Guy does when Brian takes the blind guy to see it. Nothing’s happening, nothing’s happening, something about a map I wasn’t paying attention, nothing’s happening, and it’s over everybody in the audience looks pissed.

          • James

            Exactly!

          • J Jett

            CB Punk, yes!! i freaking love that Family Guy moment! it’s the perfect representation of how i felt about that movie! lol.

    • J Jett

      Grim, well said! 🙂

  • Braker

    “Last night was one of the biggest and most impactful nights in the history of horror.”

    OMG, please stop.

    • James

      That was immediately my reaction as well. It’s the Blair witch not the second coming. Dear god.

      • Grimphantom

        How much you’re gonna bet that Brad’s going to say the same with Saw and Paranormal Activity……or mostly the guys who where involve in V/H/S

      • J Jett

        same here James. my god the way Mr.D over-OVER-hypes this film one would think this movie cured cancer, cured AIDS, ended every war/conflict and ended world hunger. lol.

        • Khy

          Sad part is this will definitely work against the film. Most people will go in with high expectations and will be pissed. Just say it was an enjoyable movie and leave it at that. All the “It’ll change your life and bring back the dinosaurs!” bullshit can be squashed.

          • J Jett

            Khy, EXACTLY! same thing happened with myself (and apparently many others) with the extreme over-hype machine for IT FOLLOWS and THE BABADOOK.

          • Braker

            Well, that would put a lot of responsibility on this site and put a lot of belief that a mainstream audience reads Brad’s review. But I get what you’re saying for sure.

    • CreepShowTwo

      I read that last line in a valley girls voice in my head. Hahaha

  • Rohan Sorensen

    The second I read the first line I knew that I had to see the comments.

    • CB Punk

      Wehoaks disappeared so the rest of us have to pick up his slack and keep Brads’ BS in perspective.

      • Khy

        Haha. Wehoaks spirit still lives within us.

        • Creepshow

          I miss that dude.

    • Khy

      Brad sure loves to make people hate him. He would be the perfect reality TV villain.

  • Khy

    Okay Brad, stop with the theatrics. It’s going to be a fun movie but please exit stage left. Performance over.

    • J Jett

      Khy, i was about to say the same thing to Mr. D! lol. i wish i could up-vote your comment a hundred times! 🙂

  • Paul Paradis

    Take your foot off the hyperbole peddle, and step away from the keyboard.

  • CreepShowTwo

    Fucking brad…man he really knows how tp dig his nose deep i. The industry machines butt portal. I gonna give this movie a chance because of the director…not some hyperbole and Chernobyl like writting ethics. Brads acting lime the second comming of Christ is upon us…an even the first time Christ experienced lag..took three days to respawn. So brad do us all a favor and try not to make its so noticeable that your pockets are getting lined,most of us are already gonna see the flick. You dont have to be the reason we get other hyped and blame you for the hype if the flick doesnt do much for us. Your already liable fpr ao many other offenses in journalistic integrity. Why commit more acts of polarizing your readers on your web site. Fuckin shut up with the”itll destroy you” comment..no it wont its not a serbian film. Jesus

    • osh kosh b’josh

      that’s a lot of typos and grammatical errors for someone bitching about the way someone writes. but yes , brad, fuck you for acting like you are the reason people will this. dipshit.

      • CreepShowTwo

        Hahah ive said it before and ill say it again. I am terrible at english, second language so grammar is lost on me ALOT, and i type quick and dont use my auto correct. I give to shits about that stuff. So youll be busy if your gonna always point that out.and no a serbian film for whats in that film will ruin alot of people, not people accustomed to the genre and its extremes. Just cause your or i, or most thats on this site will think ot trite, doesnt mean the other 90 percent wont be heavily effected by the content of that movie. Think outside your little bubble dude.

        • osh kosh b’josh

          uh, I didn’t say a Serbian film wouldn’t affect other people (of course it will,a guy rapes a newborn ) I just said I didn’t like it. no need to try and be condescending, I was agreeing with you. goddamn retard.

          and I wasn’t pointing out your mistakes, I was pointing out the irony. so if you “give to (sic) shits about that stuff” , maybe you should. maybe you should try giving three.

          • CreepShowTwo

            Sir feelys…you were the one being
            Condescending..pointing out grammar and typos…hmph…your a really emotional one arnt ya. You also didnt phrase it as you only, you stated it was shit as in a response to what i felt would destroy movie goers versus the new blair witch.so as to act as if you didnt try…try is the word…to correct someones english typing abilities as a way to point out my errors ironically connected to brads….well i dont know much about being condescending but i think that fits pretty snug in that box buster. But to each their own, your american probably explains the sensitive feelys you get about stuff that doesnt matter…its the pount made that matters. Happy editing

          • CreepShowTwo

            Irony is your the one with condescending tones dripping from your fangs girlfriend. Your point is invalid a 404 error keeps comming up when i look for it….damn page not loading…….still waiting,shit……knew i should have bought better dial up….

    • osh kosh b’josh

      oh and a Serbian film fucking sucks, the only thing it destroyed was my ability to take it seriously.

  • The Unnamed

    hey miska, last night when I turned into a bat to prove I was really a real vampire, I told you not to blab about it because no one must ever… wait-
    blair witch? whaa-?
    nm.

  • osh kosh b’josh

    pussy.

    • CreepShowTwo

      I am what i eat;) but your still a fuck butt.
