Despite it flopping, I honestly believe that the Blair Witch sequel is one of the most underrated horror flick of recent years and if you are one the minority who feel the same, then you may need to check out The Widow that is due for release this March.
The horror is directed by Svyatoslav Podgaevsky and is to be released via VOD and digital platforms and on DVD & Blu-ray on March 30, 2021.
Here is the synopsis and trailer:
In a densely forested area north of St. Petersburg, people have been going missing for three decades. Very few corpses were ever found, and the few that were recovered were naked. On October 14, 2017, a team of volunteers went out into the woods in search of a missing teenager. Soon, all communication with them was lost. Locals believe they were taken by the same dark spirit that took the others … they call it the Limping Widow. Based on true accounts from the region, this gripping film is a white-knuckle ride from beginning to end!
This film is inspired by real events that happened to a search-and-rescue team in the forests near St. Petersburg. Those mysterious, swampy forests of the St. Petersburg region were the main site for the film. The film crew spent several months isolated from civilization. Raw autumn with its north winds, cold and rain — is only a small part of what the expedition members had to deal with every day. It’s worth noting that the making of the film started on October 14, 2018, on the Holy Virgin’s Day when, according to folklore, the forest turns into a deadly place.
