Festival trailer for The Blair Witch Project documentary The Woods Movie

I've always been a fan of Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez's classic found footage horror film THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. I found it to be a rather effective film when I saw it in theaters a little more than 15 years ago, and though it has had many imitators over the years, in my opinion it still reigns supreme as the seminal found footage flick. Now the horror classic is explored as both film and phenomena in the feature length documentary THE WOODS MOVIE, which is gearing up for its FrightFest Glasgow premiere, and we've got the trailer for the doc below. 

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. 

Directed by Russ Gomm, the film is set to World Premiere as part of the Film4 FrightFest Glasgow on February 28th. Check out the trailer for the documentary below.
