Storyline

Satirizing (quite obviously) the original independent hit "The Blair Witch Project", "The Blair Witch Rejects" chronicles the misadventures of an inept Beverly Hills producer who believes she can ride the coat-tails of the original movie's success by filming a follow-up. Bankrolled by her father, she hires a documentary director, his production crew and four actors (to give the project a sexy "Scream"-like quality) in an attempt to track down evidence related to the "West Woods Witch". This witch (supposedly) fled to the forests of California and ritualistically sacrificed several Spanish settlers in the early 1700's. Rumors persist however, of campers disappearing in the woods to this very day. Events start to unravel very early on as the motley group encounter other film crews in the woods and end up getting lost themselves. Is the curse of the "West Woods Witch" for real... or something else entirely? Written by Jerry Vasilatos

Great spoof
1 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

I recently viewed The Blair Witch Rejects on home video. I have not been exposed to many Blair Witch spoofs, only a couple of short amateur videos. I believe Blair Witch Rejects may be the only feature length spoof of the original.

Anyway, putting it in a Hollywood setting was a great idea, and I really got a kick out of the scene when our fearless filmmakers finally ventured to the woods, and ran into several other clusters of filmmakers making the same documentary. That says a lot about people jumping on a bandwagon, taking advantage and cashing in on a fad that will quickly fade. Isn't that Hollywood?

Special kudos to Brent, the actor playing the sound man. I really got a kick out of his subtle "dumb guy" performance, quite a few laughs there.

For a moment I was fooled by the "Artisan Lawyer" in front of Mann's Chinese Theater. I really thought our filmmakers were busted, because you never know who is on the streets of Hollywood. That was an actress, wasn't it?
