SANTA MONICA, CA (November 1, 2016) – Nearly two decades after documentary filmmakers vanished in the groundbreaking film The Blair Witch Project, an investigative team searches for them and the truth behind their disappearance in Blair Witch, arriving on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD, Digital HD, and On Demand January 3 from Lionsgate. From acclaimed filmmakers Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett (You’re Next), Blair Witch stars James Allen McCune (TV’s “The Walking Dead”), Callie Hernandez (La La Land), Brandon Scott (TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy”), Valorie Curry (American Pastoral), Corbin Reid (Words with Girls), and Wes Robinson (The Genius Code). An official selection of the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, this much-buzzed-about film will haunt viewers far beyond the closing credits.

A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of their friend’s sister, who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals 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 realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.
