Lionsgate Home Entertainment has just added a Blu-Ray version of The Blair Witch Project to their line-up, preapring the film for a release in October.
In October 1994, three student filmmakers disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland, while shooting a documentary… A year later their footage was found.
Now prepare for a motion picture experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen, heard, or feared before. The Blair Witch Project follows a trio of filmmakers on what should have been a simple walk in the woods… but quickly becomes an excursion into heart-stopping terror. As the three become inexplicably lost, morale deteriorates. Hunger sets in. Accusations fly. By night, unseen evil stirs beyond their campfire’s light. By day, chilling ritualistic figures are discovered nearby. As the end of their journey approaches, they realize that what they are filming now is not a legend…but their own descent into unimaginable horror.
The Blu-Ray version will feature a 1080p high def transfer – of the 480i low def video source material the film was shot in – along with additional bonus materials that include an audio commentary, a featurette and extra footage.
Arriving in stores on October 5 for $19.99 I am not sure if “The Blair Witch Project” will really make anyone go out and repurchase this release.
