In this special edition of Hellbent for Horror I review the new movie Blair Witch 2016, directed by Adam Wingard. 

This is a sequel to The Blair Witch Project, and I can’t help but think of this new movie in relation to the original.  So, that’s what I do in this episode. 

I recorded some of my thoughts about both movies. 

What made the first movie so original?  Does the new movie hold up under that weight? 

Does it blaze its own trail or get lost in the woods?  

Special bonus: hear my comparison of the original Blair Witch Project to Roberto Rossellini’s Rome-Open City and the Italian neo-realism movement.
