Blair Witch (2016) at cinemas now has it already bombed? Directed by Adam Wingard, distributed by Lionsgate. Will this movie ever be as terrifying as the 1999 orginal, well critics say no.
Well so far it has mixed reviews, getting on most sites a 3/5 rating, but is it any good and can it really match or capitalise on the original?.
Ignoring the Book of Shadows like it never existed, and this being a direct sequel.
Using HD cameras this time, not VHS, with state of the art gadgets the younger brother of Heather is determined to find out what happened to his sister two decades earlier. With others involved including a bunch of bloggers called the 666 will they find any truth in the Maryland woods.
With a lot of critics saying this movie is far too polished, and has lost the amateur feel of the original, yes the better actors are better at doing that, but apparently has lost the terrifying effect it had on the orginal actors, who were plagued by tricks and the unknown script from the orginal writers and directors Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick.
