Few indie horror films can say they achieved as much as the original Blair Witch Project. Maybe Halloween and Evil Dead, that’s it. The Blair Witch Project catapulted the found footage genre to a new level, practically invented the concept of viral marketing, and set a Guinness World Record for biggest sales-to-budget ration after making $250 million on a $50k budget. Not only is The Blair Witch Project one of the greatest achievements in indie horror, it is one of the most notable films in the horror genre, period. Full stop.
After having the mythos expanded upon with comics, video games, mockumentaries, books, and two sequels, now we are given the opportunity to finally see the movie the way it was meant to be. This can only be a good thing and has this writer practically drooling at the prospect. Writer/director Eduardo Sanchez wants it to happen but he needs to show Lionsgate Studio that this is something people want. And he has asked the awesome folks at foundfootagecritic to launch a petition to make it happen.
All you need to do is sign! Of course, going the extra mile and spreading the word helps too! Go to the PETITION HERE!
