Trailer and poster for Blair Witch, aka The Woods, directed by Adam Wingard!

It had been rumored for months now, and I must say that I've known the truth for a little while but was not at liberty to say anything, but the announcement can now be made. Adam Wingard's found footage horror film THE WOODS is actually a sequel to THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Its new title is simply BLAIR WITCH.

To make the announcement even more official, a new trailer, image and poster have all been released. Additionally, here's a new synopsis:

A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think of this announcement! Having seen the film, I can say that it's a very effectively crafted found footage movie; furthermore, people who've been waiting a long time for a proper BLAIR WITCH PROJECT sequel should find everything they're looking for here. We'll have a review ready for you very soon. BLAIR WITCH opens September 16th.
