In 1999, a low-budget horror film was released that became a pop culture phenomenon. Popularizing the “found footage” sub-genre of horror movies, it was endlessly copied and parodied in the following years. It also became one of the most successful independent films of all time, making 4000 times its shoestring budget at the box office. For its 20th Anniversary, The Cabot brings it back to the big screen – The Blair Witch Project.

Found video footage tells the tale of three film students who’ve traveled to a small town in Maryland to collect documentary footage about the Blair Witch, a legendary local murderer. Over the course of several days, the students interview townspeople and gather clues to support the tale’s veracity. But the project takes a frightening turn when the students lose their way in the woods outside of town, begin hearing horrific noises, and start finding stone cairns placed around their campsite…

Rated R. Run time approx. 1 hour 20 minutes.
