Totally Didn't See That Coming

Ten years after The Blair Witch Project blew away every record for budget-to-profit ratio, nine years after the studio rushed out a sequel made by different people and widely panned, two days after Paranormal Activity hits wide release and attempts a run at the heavy weight title of low budget horror, the absolutely unthinkable has occurred.

The directors of The Blair Witch Project (Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez) have announced that they will be making a sequel. They insist an idea finally came to them after years of wandering in the wilderness, a sudden inspiration that just felt right after a decade of thought and perseverance. What an amazing coincidence! I bet the eventual film will involve:

1. Documentary-style found footage.
2. Creepy noises in the dark.
3. Hidden letters that when assembled say “PA Sux, BW Forevar”

I haven’t been this shocked since that dark and terrifying day at the sandbox when I found out that girls wore different underwear than boys.
