Blair Witch has been splitting audience and critics’ opinions since its recent release, but star of the 1999 The Blair Witch Project Heather Donahue has praised its scares, congratulating Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard. She took to Facebook to say:
“Scare for scare, the new Blair Witch is better than the original. You heard me. You nailed it and Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett! Big, big congratulations!”
That’s right; she thinks it’s BETTER than the original film that she starred in. We’re not sure if we quite agree with that statement, but we are definitely on the side that loves Blair Witch. You can read our 4-star review here.
Blair Witch stars James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson, and is out right now in the UK and USA.
