Matthew R. Anderson,
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
The song "Feel Good Hit Of The Summer" by Queens Of The Stone Age plays over the scene in which everyone is drinking and smoking weed. The song's lyrics are simply "Nicotine, Valium, Vicodin, Marijuana, Ecstasy and Alcohol" four or five times every verse. The chorus is "C-c-c-c-c-cocaine" a few times. See more »
Jeff's van has colorful beads and what appears to be a rabbit's foot hanging on a noose from the rear view mirror as he is driving his group to the campsite. However, when Kim later takes his van to the store to get beer and later crashes the van on the way back to Jeff's house, the beads and rabbit's foot are nowhere to be seen. See more »
Based on the same subject but not really a sequel.
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).
