Blair Witch goes back to its found footage roots 20 years after James’ sister and her two friends vanished into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland, while researching the legend of the Blair Witch leaving a trail of theories and suspicions in their wake. The film documents James and his friends Peter, Ashley and film student Lisa venturing into the same woods each with a camera to uncover the mysteries surrounding the 1999 disappearances.
At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals Lane and Talia offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods. But as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realise the terrifying legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.
