The big reveal at this year’s San Diego Comic Con was that Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s The Woods was actually Blair Witch (review), a direct sequel to the 1999 found footage horror film that shocked and terrified audiences upon release.
Our own Jimmy Champane got the chance to chat with both Wingard and Barrett for an in-depth interview that you can watch below. The interview starts off with Wingard and Barrett laughing about how we originally broke the scoop back in April of 2015 and that they were worried their secret was out. However, the utter disbelief that permeated through the community gave them that confidentiality they were worried was lost.
Blair Witch haunts theaters on September 16th.
