Blair Witch (R)
Directed by: Adam Wingard
Starring: James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Corbin Reid, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry
The pitch: An group of young people go into the Maryland woods that are supposed to be haunted by the Blair Witch. They soon discover that many of the stories they heard are true.
Never miss a local story.
The formula: Start with some found footage from “The Blair Witch Project.” Stumble upon moments from “Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.” Lumber through bits of “Sleepaway Camp.”
Go see it: If you will go see any horror film not matter how stupid.
Don’t go see it: If you have seen “The Blair Witch Project.” It’s almost the same movie.
Didn’t even try?: “The Blair Witch Project” was scary because the producers did a good job with a website and TV special making the incident seem real. There’s no such attempt with the new film.
