The creator of "The Blair Witch Project", Eduardo Sánchez, returns to found-footage horror, the sub-genre he defined back in ’99 and proves he can still terrify audiences with his masterful ability and technique to create high levels of suspense.
When a group of friends head into the remote Texas woods for a weekend of non-stop partying, their car hits a huge mysterious animal, which quickly disappears back into the darkness.
But as the gang arrives at an isolated cabin, one of them realizes that the woods are home to a bloodthirsty Bigfoot, and it’s only a matter of time before he seeks them out.
Soon enough, their weekend trip turns into a terrifying ordeal of survival of the fittest…
Though it’s been 15 years since "The Blair Witch Project", Eduardo Sánchez has barely missed a step when it comes to found-footage horror. Using just a dark space, POV shot, and suspect noises in the distance, Sánchez proves that he’s still a master of unsettling suggestion – making this one found-footage worthy of the Blair Witch legacy.
It’s also great to see Bigfoot get his turn to play the bad-guy to such blood-curdling effect. Though a longtime figure of family-friendly fun on film, everyone’s favourite mythical monster has been just waiting for the right movie to come along to make him a believable and brutal villain.
With Sánchez at the helm, a cast of promising stars, and a monster of such giant standing, this is a terror-ride of savage suspense not to be missed!
"Exists" comes to UK DVD April 6th.
