Script Page Shows Unique Directorial Approach to The Blair Witch Project

Posted by John Squires on March 3, 2015

There are some truly fascinating behind-the-scenes stories about The Blair Witch Project, as directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick took a very unique approach to the film. Much of what you saw on screen was unscripted and improvised, lending a quality of believability to the proceedings.

Set to premiere at FrightFest Glasgow is the Russ Gomm-directed The Woods Movie, which will tell all those stories. In the meantime check out a never-before-seen director’s note recently shared by star Joshua Leonard, which provides some insight into the unique filmmaking process!

The Woods Movie Synopsis:
In October 1997, a group of filmmakers ventured into the Maryland woods to produce a low-budget independent horror movie. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT would become a global phenomenon and began the “found footage” genre that remains a potent force today. Now, for the first time, you can see how that record-breaking groundbreaker came into being. From never-before-seen recordings of pre-production meetings, audition tapes, and test footage to the actual shooting, first preview screenings, and marketing at the Sundance Film Festival, all the key personnel guide you through the discussions and decisions that minted a shock sensation classic.

Joshua LeonardA&E’s “Bates Motel” reopens for business in March of next year, and a familiar face has just checked in for the show’s third season. Rejoice, Blair Witch Project fans, because Joshua Leonard has finally emerged from the woods!

TVLine reported the news today, revealing that Leonard will play James Finnigan, a community college psych professor whose pull towards Norma slowly chips away at his carefully constructed house of cards.

Leonard is the show’s fourth major Season 3 hire, following the casting of Kevin Rahm (“Mad Men”), Tracy Spiridakos (“Revolution”), and Ryan Hurst (“Sons of Anarchy”).

Check out a sneak preview of the upcoming season below, which should whet your appetite for the return of Norman Bates!

Poster and Trailer Reveal The Town that Dreaded Sundown

Posted by Steve Barton on September 10, 2014

Poster and Trailer Reveal The Town That Dreaded SundownPlaying as part of the second annual Beyond Fest (September 25-October 4, 2014) in Los Angeles as well as Fantastic Fest (September 18-25th) in Austin is The Town That Dreaded Sundown. Check out the trailer and poster!

"American Horror Story" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon helmed the remake of the 1976 Charles B. Pierce horror classic with Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum producing. Addison Timlin, Travis Tope, Veronica Cartwright, Gary Cole, and Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project) star.

The flick will also be screening at the BFI London Film Festival on October 14th and 18th.

Drawing inspiration from the 1976 classic of the same name, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s striking debut is not so much a remake as it is a shrewd reinvention, resulting in a genuinely innovative and unexpected meta-horror experience. Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness, this update sees the quiet streets of Texerkana plagued by a maniac who bears a striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc on the town decades before. Is history repeating itself? Or has somebody just seen the original film too many times? Perhaps the key to the mystery lies with young high school girl Jami, who must uncover the truth if she wants to survive the carnage.

Meticulously styled with an unmistakable 1970s genre vibe, but with an ultra-modern twist, this is that rare beast - a horror reboot that actually feels like it has been made with horror fans in mind.

Synopsis
65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, the so-called "moonlight murders" begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching him.
