A group of tourists arrives in Burkittsville, Maryland after seeing The Blair Witch Project (1999) to explore the mythology and phenomenon, only to come face to face with their own neuroses and possibly the witch herself.
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

I feel this film has taken somewhat of a bad rap, lets face it Director Joe Berlinger was fighting a losing battle from the start here. Put another bunch of kids in the woods and he would be slammed for being unoriginal and so he made a more cerebal horror film that was slammed for not being as closely associated with the first film. I think the main reason this film wasn't successful was that because of Berlingers whole what is reality angle when the twists come the audience and critics laughed them off as stupid. I'll admit the acting isn't the best (especially from the male actors) but just by fighting against the expectations that people were going to have of a blair witch sequel i enjoyed the film. Just listen to the DVD commentary by Berlinger to hear about all the studio interference he had to deal with and see how great this film could have been, Without ruining the ending i walked out with a smile on my face when i heard the exact same comments at the end of BW2 that i heard at the end of 1 'what thats it?' or 'thats a load of crap'. Although BW2 is entirely different from the first film its ending holds true to the spirit of the original as the people that got the film left having enjoyed the original should feel the same about BW2. Destined to become a future cult classic
