Earlier this year, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Blair Witch Project, and the celebration continues with two very special guests on our latest episode of Corpse Club!
Filmmakers Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sánchez join Heather Wixson on this special episode of Corpse Club! Listen as Hale and Sánchez discuss the eclectic scares they have in store for viewers in their new horror anthology Portals (which also features segments from directors Liam O'Donnell and Timo Tjahjanto).
With this year marking 20 years since The Blair Witch Project forever changed cinema, the duo reflect on the making of their iconic horror movie, including the film's immersive found footage style, the movie's eerie mythology, their unforgettable experiences filming in the woods, the movie's rabid reception following its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and the innovative marketing that made people think the movie was more fact than fiction. Looking back at the most recent cinematic excursion into the Burkittsville woods, Hale and Sánchez also share their thoughts on 2016's Blair Witch.
So, whether you listen while kicking back in your favorite chair or standing in the corner facing the wall, enjoy an insightful conversation with the filmmakers behind one of the most groundbreaking horror movies ever released... just keep an eye out for stick figures the next time you go outside!
