FrightFest Glasgow is set to premiere “The Woods Movie,” a much-needed documentary that celebrates the 1999 indie The Blair Witch Project.
“In October 1997, a group of filmmakers ventured into the Maryland woods to produce a low budget independent horror movie. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT would become a global phenomenon and began the ‘found footage’ genre that remains a potent force today. Now for the first time you can see how that record-breaking groundbreaker came into being. From never-before-seen recordings of pre-production meetings, audition tapes and test footage to the actual shooting, first preview screenings and marketing at the Sundance Film Festival, all the key personnel guide you through the discussions and decisions that minted a shock sensation classic.”
We now have the trailer for Russ Gomm’s doc that looks to give us all the juicy inside info we’ve been craving for 15+ years!
Blair Witch is one of the most influential and successful horror movies of all time. Isn’t it about time it gets its own doc?!
