'Blair Witch' Director Back to Found Footage with Bigfoot 'Exists' Trailer
Over two years ago, we heard The Blair Witch Project director Eduardo Sanchez would return to found footage, the genre that launched his career, with Exists, a film focusing on the mythical creature Bigfoot. Now the first trailer has arrived, showing off the tale of five friends on a camping weekend in the remote woods of East Texas, who have their fun cut short as they are forced into a game of survival against a legendary predator that is stronger, smarter, and more terrifying than anything they would have ever believed exists. This ain't no Harry and the Hendersons, but can it stand out from other found footage fare?
Here's the first trailer for Eduardo Sanchez's Exists, originally from Apple:
Exists is directed by Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) and written by Jamie Nash (writer of a segment in V/H/S/2). For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway— a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed—something not exactly human, but not completely animal— an urban legend come to terrifying life and seeking murderous revenge. Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn, Brian Steele and Denise Williamson star in the film which Lionsgate releases on iTunes and in theaters this fall on October 24th.
