The man behind the 1999 found-footage film is returning to the woods with his new movie 'Exists'.

Quote

When it first came out, Eduardo Sanchez's 'The Blair Witch Project' was considered to be a fresh and unusual take on the traditional horror flick. Filmed entirely on low budget cameras the movie followed the terrifying experiences of its three protagonists as they found themselves being hunted by something in the woods.

Well I loved the Blair Witch project, so hope this Bigfoot film will be good. The 3 main characters in The Blair Witch Project had some great chemistry between them that I think will be very difficult for team to recreate.

The first time I watched Blairwitch Project I did not like it but the 2nd time alone in my house with the lights switched off it was a whole different movie. I hope his new work will just as good.

I didn't like Blair Witch Project as it didn't make any sense and I was so fed up looking up at the woman's dribbling nose! I hated the fact the ending was so rubbish and had her screaming. Then the sequal came out later on and that was a bit better, although that team was an awful bunch of people.

I hope this one about Bigfoot is 100% better.

Blair Witch was fresh, something we hadn't seen before. Now, the found footage thing has been literally done to death.
It's become annoying and headache inducing

That must be a BIG bigfoot to put that giant tree upside down into that car.

The actors were unknown at the time, that's what contributed to the veil of mystery surrounding the film. Eduardo Sànchez was looking for 'simple people' who could improvised because there was a lot of it in the script.

I am not sure what to expect of this bigfoot film. No doubt I will end up watching it but not sure what my expectations are. That's the thing, I didn't know anything about the Blair Witch Project and as a result it had quite an effect on me like no horror movie I had seen before. It felt genuine and you just don't get that in horror movies these days.

I thought they did a good job on the Blair Witch Project and also The Last Broadcast but of course, that one had a completely different feel to it but same concept.  The fact that when it was released, they hadn't mentioned yet that it was fiction so we didn't know if this was a true story or not and the news clippings and witnesses looked completely believable.  When the movie was over, I hadn't heard an audience that quiet since I saw Selena four years earlier...

BWP was indeed a boring film and not creepy at all. I watched it twice and once in a synchronisized Version (German) which made it even ridiculous.

The script for this Bigfoot-Movie is obvious:
- a group of nervous teenagers
- huge footprints
- big heaps of faeces with (human) bones in it
- roaring noises, grope in the dark
- ape-like shadows here and there, movement in the bushes
- a thunderstorm to explain all these flashes
- panic and uncontrolled fleeing

It is surely difficult to make a scary movie nowadays, even with high budget.
My favorites are still the old classics like Halloween, Alien, Hellraiser, The Thing, The Evil Dead (Part 1 of each).
