AUSTIN (KXAN/KNVA) – Blair Witch, the follow-up to 1999’s The Blair Witch Project, shakes and screams its way into theaters Friday.
Frequent collaborators, Adam Wingard (director) and Simon Barrett (writer) talked with Joe Barlow about bringing back the classic.
“I love how dirty and grainy and kind of muddy the original film is,” says Adam. “And it adds so much to the authenticity.”
“Found footage is unforgiving to any kind of fakeness in acting where everything is trying to feel as authentic and natural and spontaneous as possible.” says Simon.
