'Blair Witch' Director Back to Found Footage with Bigfoot 'Exists' Trailer

August 25, 2014
Source: Apple


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.

  • This looks a little too overproduced, which is disappointing since this comes from the guy who made The Blair Witch Project.
      Exactly my sentiments.

    I'll take a group of kids surrounding my tent in the middle of the night giggling over this garbage ANYDAY.

    somebody got paid alot of money to write this....thats all im saying...

    Quit messing with him and just give him the damn beef jerky.
  • Jon Odishaw

    This would be better if it was a parody.

    Already been done with Willow Creek.
    • MattPeloquin
      Agreed, and Willow Creek did a damn fine job too.

    Whatever happened to that other found footage film of the couple (with the bigfoot obsessed boyfriend) who went backpacking in light search of Bigfoot??
    • JBrotsis
      And then there was this one too...

          I know, right! I mean, granted this movie will probably end up on the syfy channel but the poster is pretty awesome!
          • DAVIDPD
            Hell Yeah. I wonder if they transitioned to the Asian Yeti concept, things would far any better. Pixar could do one for that Yeti from MONSTER'S INC.

        That tagline sounds like a genius last-minute decision.
    The Godfather of found footage, makes just another found footage movie.
  • ErrorSapiens
    Sorry, but Mighty Boosh already did the love lusty bigfoot mama story. :)
  • NathanDewey
    Judging from this, we'll get to see Big Foot a lot. which is good in my opinion. I really like the GoPro cam shots in there. That chase scene on the bike trail could be really intense like a roller coaster ride. I hope there's a lot of that in it.
  • NathanDewey
    I wanna see a sequel with a group of commandos hunting it down like the team in Predator, and it's shot with helmet cams like the colonial marines in Aliens.
    • SHU-IZMZ
      I second that!
    @NathanDewey:disqus: I second that!

    I'm so disappointed in Lionsgate...
  • shiboleth
    it would be much more interesting story if they made movie about orgies and the choices people make afterwards. This looks really ridiculous...
  • Randall Miller
    BWP was the most UN-watchable piece of trash in the history of cinema, how can anyone give this guy money to make more crap. Sanchez go away!
  • Spooky Samantha
    So Bigfoot stumbles upon a couple kids making out in the woods? Hmm. Reminds me of a certain horror movie villain. Erhm, if that villain were a hairy guy from the backwoods, grunted, and didn't wear a hockey mask.
