‘The Blair Witch Project’ Director May Go Into the Forest Again Soon

Except it will NOT be found footage. Read on for more!

Make no mistake: The Blair Witch Project certainly had its fans. Stephen King himself happens to be one of them. But the idea of new Blair Witch films honestly may even make the fans go meh, and others want to scoff at the idea. After all, the film did have two sequels, neither of them impressing much. The much maligned Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows and the unusual and a bit over-the-top Blair Witch somehow just didn’t have the newness magic the original had, but it just so happens that the original director Eduardo Sanchez himself recently came out and spoke of the very real possibility…

We May Have a Couple More ‘Blair Witch’ Films Coming

Only they won’t actually be sequels, believe it or not.

Sanchez himself spoke of the fact that it seemed the franchise itself doesn’t seem to work with the sequel format, which is odd. To a degree, Paranormal Activity did. Other found footage films even found some success with sequels, but unusually enough, The Blair Witch Project misfired twice.

The reason why is because the original film was very much grounded in history when you think about it. Long story short, when you look at the original film, it’s a true standalone; there’s no “what happens next, stay tuned” feel of what could be except for the fact that three hapless individuals got lost in the forest and trapped by a witch.

It’s about the mystery. The enigma. In fact, we for the most part don’t even see what the Blair Witch actually looks like (well, we sort of see what she looks like in the third installment, but it’s shaky at best). It’s that air of mystery drawing us into the mythology and the crypt of the wood where it all seems so black and white, deep and dark, and there is absolutely no end to it. Confusing, and utterly disorienting.
