More than 15 years after the release of one of the most influential horror films of all time, a documentary chronicling the production of the phenomenon that is The Blair Witch Project is being released. In support of that, we have a trailer to share with you. You can check it out after the break.
From director Russ Gomm, the doc is set to make its premiere as part of the Film4 FrightFest Glasgow lineup on February 28, 2014. You can score tickets for the festival here.
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.
