A Brief History
Blair Witch (2016) is an American found footage psychological horror film being released in the United States on September 16 by Lionsgate.
Having seen the original and sequel, we were eagerly awaiting the latest installment of the “Witch.” Slightly slow at first, the movie develops the characters, or should we say, victims, college age kids pursuing the mysterious disappearance of the sister of one of their group in the original incident. The found footage “real” camera work is shaky and at times disorienting, but the effect on the audience is pure terror as it is easy to relate to the characters and their fears when things get very, very wrong.
