Book of Shadows director Joe Berlinger chimes in on Blair Witch's B.O. flop

The hot story today is the box office failure of Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett's BLAIR WITCH sequel in its opening weekend. The film only made $9.6 million domestic and failed to break the #1 slot. Although I think this whole mess has been blown vastly out of proportion (the film has already made its budget back, and it  did  beat out BRIDGET JONES' BABY and...

Trailer: The Blair Witch haunts these woods, and she ain't messing around

Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett's latest collaboration is one of the biggest names in modern horror: BLAIR WITCH . Whenever filmmakers get an opportunity to make an entry in a classic franchise, there's always debate as to whether or not they can do justice to the original material.

The new  BLAIR WITCH flick from Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett is going to rectify a major mistake made by BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2 . Well, presumably it will improve on that film in  several  ways, but this new TV spot shows that BLAIR WITCH will be revisiting a major location from the original BLAIR WITCH PROJECT : the abandoned house in the woods where...

A new image for Blair Witch emerges from the woods

BLAIR WITCH , the new follow-up to the iconic found footage flick from Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, has had such a mysterious marketing campaign that we didn't even know the film's real title until recently.

Shield your eyes from the blood-red new poster for The Woods

My anticipation for Adam Wingard's newest flick  THE WOODS has only grown with its bombastic ad campaign, which features quotes from a wide array of horror authorities, including our very own JimmyO. This new poster is still frustratingly mysterious (we know next to nothing about the plot other than it's about bad things happening to people in the woods), but it's a...
