To cash in on all of the "real world" hype of the events in the first film, a man from Burkitsville, Maryland opens a "Blair Witch Hunt" tour, which shows patrons various locations from the original film. A bunch of college students decide to take the tour, and wind up in Rustin Parr's house. There, they decide to camp for the evening, but in the morning, they realize they didn't sleep and they don't remember anything that happened the previous night. From there, they go back to town, and discover that something...or someone has come with them. Written by Johnny

Did You Know?


Artisan Entertainment, who distributed the original movie, was keen to produce a sequel quickly, to take advantage of its predecessor's popularity. However, Haxan Films, the producers of the first film (which included original directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez), weren't comfortable working on a sequel so quickly, and preferred to wait until the hype had diminished a bit. Artisan (who had the rights) then decided to produce the sequel without Haxan Films. Myrick and Sanchez were given an executive producers credit, but both men later stated that they had very little creative input, and disliked the final film. See more »

User Reviews

Based on the same subject but not really a sequel.
16 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This excellent horror flick has such roadblocks in front of it.

People who didn't like the first movie are unlikely to give it a try. People who loved the first movie are unlikely to enjoy it.

While it is about the same subject and is dead on in continuity with the first movie, it is nothing like it. This uses a film crew!

This movie is as creepy as they get. It's a little weird, and doesn't all run in chronological order (it is very obvious when it jumps time and makes it's points clearly). It can leave you with your mouth hanging open (in a good way for horror flicks).

I repeat: This is nothing like the first movie. Be ready that it's only based on the Blair Witch, and is not the same style as the first movie.

The characters have a situation and spend the movie trying to figure out what the heck happened, while things keep happening!

While this movie is a little scary for sure, it's mostly CREEPY!

All those who enjoy suspense horror, should give this a whirl. This isn't a hack and slash bloody horror throughout (although it has it's moments).
