Storyline

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

Trivia

While auditioning for the film, Erica Leerhsen was originally trying for Kim Director's role, Tristine Skyler was trying for Erica's, Kim was trying for Tristen's, and Jeffrey Donovan was trying for Stephen Barker Turner's. See more »

Goofs

When Jeff puts Erica in the closet, she is already in rigor mortis. If the timeline of the story is correct, Jeff kills Erica, puts her clothes on the floor, puts her in the closet, and 'reappears' to the group minutes later fully clothed. Rigor mortis would not set in that fast. See more »

Quotes

Jeff: If you don't believe in the Blair Witch, then why the hell did you come along?
Kim: I thought the movie was cool.

Surprising and more interesting than the original . . .
25 September 2002 | by (Woodland Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

Which wasn't much, by the way. Beyond some clever advertising and (occasionally) creepy atmosphere, Blair Witch 1 wasn't what it was cracked up to be. I tried very quickly of everyone saying how beautiful that particular emperor's clothes were.

The second film is actually much better, although most people, having slavishly (and inexplicably) dedicated themselves to the rambling and decidedly un-scary first film, will not be willing to choke this one down. It's more of a mainstream horror film, meaning it has a plot and some vague sense of thematics.

It is the theme which most people missed that I found the most interesting. The camera in this film turns on itself, and shows that once something has been filmed, it takes on a life of its own apart from the realm of what we call fact or fiction. I'm reminded of Robert Wisdom who said in Todd Solondz's generally superior _Storytelling_ that "once you put it on paper, it all becomes fiction." It's the same concept here, with film. A story which may or may not be true, turning itself inside out so many times that neither the audience nor the characters know for sure what the truth is anymore. It's a cautionary message and a reprimand which seems to have generally gone unheeded.

I'll probably see this again.
