Just when we thought nothing could be cooler at Comic-Con than the Suicide Squad or Cara Delevingne鈥檚 new hair, Lionsgate completely blew everyone out of the water, and, if social media is any indication, won SDCC hands down with the ultimate movie announcement: 1999鈥檚 cult classic The Blair Witch Project is getting a SEQUEL.

It鈥檚 taken nearly two decades to make and we practically gave up hope, but rest assured, it鈥檚 happening: In fact, some have already seen it!

When SDCC attendees showed up to what they believed to be a screening of The Woods on Friday, they were in for a shock when, without warning, they were treated to a surprise screening of Blair Witch instead.

鈥淪urprise! Adam Wingard鈥檚 The Woods is a #BlairWitch sequel,鈥 tweeted the film鈥檚 official account. The reboot, which hits theaters on September 16, picks up exactly where the original left off, and yes, it鈥檚 shot to look like it鈥檚 entirely made up of found footage. Whereas 2000鈥檚 Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 strayed away from this format and was met with harsh criticism, it seems Blair Witch is bringing back everything that made the 鈥90s original such a massive hit.

Fans couldn鈥檛 hold back their excitement and #BlairWitch soon started trending on Twitter. Even producer Keith Calder was beyond ecstatic, tweeting: 鈥淚 got to produce a secret BLAIR WITCH movie with a bunch of my favorite people. Sometimes this business can be awesome.鈥

Not everyone has been feeling the Blair love, though. Some are skeptical about whether or not the franchise can really maintain its horror factor. As @therunnersam pointed out: 鈥淭he reason the original #BlairWitch was so incredible was we all thought it was real. Doing a remake is horribly boring and unoriginal.鈥

Taking a look at its trailer and reading its official synopsis, we have to say, the new Blair Witch does indeed look scary AF. The flick sees a bunch of college students venturing into Maryland鈥檚 Black Hills Forest in search of a missing sister. They find some locals who volunteer to act as their tour guides and set off to solve the mysterious disappearance.

The teens believe the disappearance is tied to the legend of Blair Witch and, of course, they鈥檙e right. But of course, they鈥檙e also SO not prepared for what lies in store for them. UGH, we can鈥檛 handle this level of suspense!
