Screening The Blair Witch Project in the Middle of the Woods

What are they... nuts?

As much as I love The Blair Witch Project, I'm not sure I'm ready to watch it in the middle of some woods on a dark night. But that is exactly what the Friends of Langley Park have proposed that you come along and do on Sunday August 30th 2015. You can book tickets here, if you think you're brave enough.

I don't know how many times I've now seen this film, what with writing a book about it, and it being one of the primary focus films of my PhD thesis. I must have seen it at least 30 times and I still don't think I'm ready to watch it in the middle of the forest, even if I am surrounded by a bunch of other people stuffing popcorn into their mouths.


On the other hand, this sounds like THE perfect way to watch this film and there is absolutely no way that I'm going to miss this opportunity. OR, if I don't feel like forking out £20 for a ticket in order to watch a film that I've already seen at least 30 times, then I may just hide in the woods nearby the screening spot and blast out the sounds of babies crying and distant cackling in order to REALLY give the audience the FULL Blair Witch experience.

In fact, the only thing that could make this screening better, is if they made you camp in the woods overnight after the film finished. Could you imagine the amount of urine that would be spilled in the tents that night?

The park is here and the price is £20 and if you ask me, this sounds like the best way to spend a summer evening at the end of August so get your tickets here!

Once you've booked your tickets, and if you have another tenner to hand, please consider picking up a copy of my book about The Blair Witch Project here. It's really good, honest. If you don't believe me, then check out these reviews!

I hope to see some of you at the screening! Bring spare underwear.
