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

"It cost too much to ship a rock."
26 August 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Crappy sequel to the hugely successful low-budget Blair Witch Project takes a different approach than its predecessor in every way. Instead of being done in found footage style, it's done as a traditional horror flick with a little documentary-style stuff thrown in. Instead of believable characters, creepy atmosphere, and not being afraid to leave some things up to the imagination, we get unlikable clichéd characters, bloody violence, nudity, and an obtrusive heavy metal soundtrack. As soon as the movie started with a Marilyn Manson song I could tell I was in for a stinker. The acting is mostly mediocre with a couple of exceptions. Jeffrey Donovan is absolutely terrible, hamming it up like he thinks he's Jack Nicholson or something. Of course he later went on to success with Burn Notice but even most viewers of that show could tell you how often he displayed the limitations of his acting ability there. Kim Director is the only one of the cast who seems to stand out in any positive way. It's a poor excuse for a movie that is everything Blair Witch Project was not -- loud, predictable, and utterly 'Hollywood' in every way that can be used as an insult. A lazy cash-grab sequel that is as awful now as it was then.
