Blair Witch Project star Heather Donahue says sequel is scarier than the original
This weekend, cinemagoers will have the opportunity to judge whether director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett’s horror sequel Blair Witch is more or less frightening than 1999’s The Blair Witch Project. But one person who has already made up her mind about that is Heather Donahue, one of the original film’s stars.
Writing on Facebook, Donahue declared that, “Scare for scare, the new Blair Witch is better than the original. You heard me. You nailed it and Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett! Big, big congratulations!”
Donahue has also written an article for The Guardian where she describes her complicated relationship with both the original film and its sequel, the announcement of which initially prompted her to drink “very nice bourbon in a very nice bathtub while bawling my eyes out” at the prospect of having to once again see her “snot-flooded portrait” everywhere.
