    Scary what lurks in the woods

    THINK of this as The Blair Witch Project but upgraded with cameras on drones.

    The original 1999 cult horror film seems pretty

    dated now so this latest

    sequel has certainly moved with the times.

    In the original, three student film-makers go missing in Maryland's Black Hills.

    They are believed to have fallen victim to the legendary Blair Witch, as only their mysterious video footage

    is found.

    This new version follows James Donahue (James Allen McCune) as he takes his friends to the Black Hills to find his sister Heather, one

    of the original missing trio.

    Cue kids screaming in the woods and finding creepy symbols dangling over

    their campsite.

    Blair Witch is the scariest flick I have seen in a while.

    The shaky camera style, while disorienting at times, puts you in their shoes.

    Speaking of shoes, there is a particularly gruesome barefoot scene, if you are

    into that sort of thing.
