‘Water’ waves to fans

Indie thriller washes up at Gotham bow

Blair Witch morphed into Blair Fish Monday night at Lions Gate’s Gotham preem of the aquatic nightmare “Open Water.”

Hometown director-scribe Chris Kentis and his producer wife, Laura Lau, welcomed the small cast and crew (including their parents) to the Chelsea screening, which drew a crowd of horror film fans seeking autographs from the virtually unknown filmmakers and cast as well their “Blair Witch Project” indie horror icons: producer Gregg Hale and director Ed Sanchez.

Convening afterwards at the appropriately adorned Coral Room (complete with a mermaid swimming in the club’s super-sized fish tank) were castmates Blanchard Ryan, Daniel Travis and Saul (“It’s all his fault”) Stein.

After-partiers included “The Manchurian Candidate’s” Vera Farmiga, Dallas Roberts (“A Home at the End of the World”), Matt Dillon and Fisher Stevens.
