Museum of Pop Culture Hosting 'The Blair Witch Project' Livestream with Director Eduardo Sanchez

Blair Witch Project Livestream Museum of Pop Culture

We may be stuck at home but that doesn't mean we can't take another hike into the Black Hills near Burkittsville, Maryland...

This week on It's Coming from Inside the House!, Museum of Pop Culture's horror film watch-a-long, fans are invited to join Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford for a livestream discussion and watch-a-long of the found footage horror classic The Blair Witch Project, with special guests co-director Eduardo Sanchez and producers Gregg Hale and Michael Monello.

Here are a handful of program elements that you can expect to see this Friday night:

  • Pre-film introduction from Robert Rutherford, MoPOP's Manager of Public Engagement, and several of the filmmakers who brought The Blair Witch Project to life — co-director Eduardo Sanchez and producers Gregg Hale and Michael Monello.

  • Spotlight on artifacts from The Blair Witch Project on display in MoPOP's Scared to Death exhibition.

  • Cocktails, mocktails, and beer pairing recommendations

  • Chat with Robert, the filmmakers, and other fans during the film

  • Post-film Q&A and discussion with the filmmakers

"Re-invigorating the 'found footage' movement in horror,The Blair Witch Project showed how much could be done with a well-crafted mystery and word-of-mouth buzz. Shot for a slim $60,000, the film went on to gross more than 240 million dollars, and its stylistic imprints on the genre are still visible today."

If you own a copy of the film, get it queued up! Otherwise, find The Blair Witch Project online and register here to join the fun at 7 PM PST this Friday, April, 24th, 2020!
