The Blair Witch Project scared the shit out of me because I've been lost in the woods before. Really, it wasn't the cat noises and shit that scared me, but rather the scenes where they're wandering aimlessly and then realize that they're straight back where they started. That freaked me out.
Is the new film like that, or do they decide to eschew the whole "people are lost in the woods and thoroughly fucked" premise/vibe and go mostly for the night scenes, which weren't scary in the slightest on their own?
I think that's the main reason why I'm hesistant with seeing this film. The Blair Witch Project is one of my favorite horror films precisely because they're mostly it's just them lost in the wood and wandering around. The trailers for the new one seems to suggest that this isn't the case, and that's boring.
