Fifteen years after he made a killing by zooming in on Heather Donahue’s terrified, snotty nostrils, Eduardo Sánchez—one of the two directors of The Blair Witch Project—has trekked back into the woods, perhaps to finally slay the found-footage monster he helped unleash. Exists, which debuted a week ago at SXSW, chronicles another wilderness adventure gone awry. But instead of being forced by some vengeful old cauldron-stirrer to go to the corner and think about what they’ve done, the unlucky campers here are being stalked by that most camera-shy of forest monsters, Bigfoot himself. So unless the beast has a stealth talent for woodworking, expect fewer ominous stick figures and more scenes of Sasquatch going berserk, possibly as revenge for the pranks that beef-jerky-loving hipsters are always playing on him.
