When it was announced that new horror movie The Woods was actually going to be a sequel to 1999 indie horror The Blair Witch Project the internet totally lost its shit because that movie was one of the most innovative of its time when it first came out, and transmitted a feeling of dread throughout it that hasn’t been replicated since.

With all the hype surrounding The Woods and critics saying stuff like ‘it promises a new beginning of horror’, it’s going to have a lot to live up to and this new trailer goes some way to justifying that as it does look like it’s going to be shit your pants terrifying. I’m not really sold on it redefining the horror genre, but I suppose such bold claims are going to get you into the cinema, especially when the trailer looks as good as this too:
I mean, it does pretty much look like your standard ‘found footage’ kind of movie, but at the same time it does look positively shit scary, so I’m not complaining. Can’t wait to see it to be honest.
If this isn’t enough to get you scared, check out the original trailer for the movie back when it was called The Woods.
