Director: Adam Wingard
Writer: Simon Barrett

Starring
Callie Hernandez
James Allen McCune
Brandon Scott
Wes Robinson
Corbin Reid

Originally announced as The Woods, Adam Wingard's latest has been revealed as a stealth continuation of the Blair Witch franchise. Following 1999's The Blair Witch Project and 2000's Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, a new group of young adults get themselves lost in the woods and subjected to various spooky happenings. You're Next was a fun take on the trapped-in-a-house-by-crazed-killers genre, and The Guest was a blast, and with the writer and director both back this one should have a lot to offer for boths fans of the franchise and horror fans in general.

Releases September 16

One time a guy stole some downhill skis out of my jeep and I was so mad I punched a mailbox. I'm against crime, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

You're the guy who works on Wingard's films right? I'm looking forward to this one, and I hope it gets a wide enough release that I can see it in theaters.

I think it's gonna get a big push. We will see though. I'm gonna keep away from any spoiler talk which means I can't say really anything at this point.

Comedy is basically self-deprecation.


I loved The Guest and You're Next, so I'm intrigued, especially by the claim that it's "the next genre-defying movie like Paranormal Activity". Looking forward to seeing more!

hello i am your heart how nice to meet you


I worked in a concession booth at a theater for two years and it left me with a hatred of movies and the people who go to see movies but SA turned me on to The Guest recently and through that You're Next and I will definitely go see this movie.

I loved both The Guest and You're Next (as have all the people I've shown them to, although that might have to do with me only recommending it to people who share tastes in movies with me), so I'm pretty excited to see this. I'm trying to avoid watching trailers and whatnot, so maybe even following this thread will be a bad idea.

One bullet. One gun. Six Chambers. These are my friends.


Not only do I enjoy horror, The Guest, and You're Next, but The Woods is my favorite Sleater-Kinney album. I'm just going to go ahead and attribute that to this completely unrelated movie.

Isn't there like 6 different movies with the name The Woods in fact i think Lucky McKee even made a movie called The Woods. It looks good but seriously that was all they could come up with for a movie title?

So far it looks like the quality of Adam Wingard's movies are inversely related to the originality of his movie titles. This is the guy whose previous movies were called "You're Next" and "The Guest".

Looking forward to his future movies The Place, The River, You're Dead, The House, You Die and The Guy.

If you're in this thread and haven't seen The Guest, it's currently streaming on American Netflix, so you should go watch it. It's great.

I'm mainly wondering what possible conceit could be central to this film so as to be "genre-defining" the way Blair Witch was. I feel like the answer to that is going to disappoint me.

Aside from the clickbait aspects of a pull quote like that, people are real drat bad at putting intense emotional reactions into a broader context. No movie is scaring me as much as The Woods right now, so...

I'm worried it's going to be some stupid bullshit like there's a framing device or it's Cabin in the Woods all over again etc.

Considering You're Next was Wingard and Barrett delivering a lot of the same broad metanarrative points as Cabin in the Woods but with like ten times the nuance and insight, I'm not that worried

I hope it's not about an Alien who brings people down into it's secret government funded Dulce-like base to turn them into rat people. If it is, I'm gonna be pissed because I wanted to make that movie.

After how much the Guest and You're Next owned, I'm not at all concerned about the marketing for this one. I just hope I get a chance to see this one in a theater.

Tickets for Friday's screening will be available at the Lionsgate Comic-Con booth (#4045). They may go quick, so if you have a badge, I highly recommend you pick some up early so you can come out and see our movie! - sb

I attribute this to the fact that on most horror discussion forums, the only two consistent threads are "WHAT MOVIES ARE ACTUALLY SCARY?!?" and "WHAT IS THE MOST EXTREME MOVIE?!?".

Because those two things are super important you see.

I am having a real hard time believing this is actually happening (Not so much that there is a new Blair Witch but the fact Wingard is actually doing it)
I am really excited for this. Blair Witch is probably one of my favorite movies.
