It was seventeen years ago when "The Blair Witch Project" created a new movie genre, the "Found Footage Film."

After making a couple of successful horror movies in his hometown of Columbia, Mo., screenwriter Simon Barrett and his frequent collaborator, director Adam Wingard, travel to the haunted woods of Maryland to reboot the "Blair Witch" franchise.

FOX 4's Russ Simmons sat down with Barrett and Wingard about how difficult it is to create a film of the genre. The two told Russ they believe they were the two best people to create the film.

"The Blair Witch Project"  opens in theaters Friday, Sept. 16.
