Lionsgate’s 2016 attempt at a surprise Blair Witch revival didn’t exactly reignite the franchise, but there’s always TV! Reports indicate that the newly-branded Studio L is working on a small-screen iteration of The Blair Witch Project, along with a number of other adaptations.
When it comes to horror movies, it’s always interesting to learn how the moviemakers came up with their endings — especially endings as ambiguously terrifying as that of The Blair Witch Project. An ending can make or break a horror movie, and the directors recently revealed how they thought up theirs, as well as all the alternate ones they shot which were a lot weirder, but maybe less scary.
Distinction is all relative. Sure, maybe Jordan Peele’s blockbuster horror film Get Out isn’t the highest-grossing movie of the year. And maybe it’s not the highest-grossing horror movie of all time. And maybe it’s not the highest-grossing directorial debut ever, or the highest-grossing February release ever, or the highest-grossing film from a black director. But gosh darnit, Get Out is too widely liked to pass through a theatrical run without setting some kind of record, so the showbiz bookkeepers of the internet did some research and found a title that they could rightly pin on Peele’s project.
