Blair Witch Project Tour and Camping Trip
The independent movie “The Blair Witch Project” was filmed and released in 1999, and made such an impact on the horror film genre that fans still talk about its influence. The movie was filmed in Burkittsville by Urbana resident Eduardo Sanchez.
For the second year in a row, “Blair Witch” fan Matt Blazi will travel from New York to gather with a group of fans to retrace the steps of the film’s cast by visiting all the filming locations set throughout central Maryland. They will then camp out in the same woods where the film was shot. Ed Sanchez hopes to join the campers during part of the event.
The tour kicks off at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4, in Burkittsville Cemetery. For more information, contact Matthew Blazi at Monrozombi@gmail.com or 717.557.3111.
