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

Similar to its predecessor, the main characters are named after the actors who played them. However, since this film actually had a script, writers Dick Beebe and Joe Berlinger had to give the characters names long before casting. Below are the characters' names in the finished film and what they were called in the 3 January 2000 first draft of the script: Kim Diamond, Domini Van Teer; Jeffrey Patterson, Cotter Kaller; Erica Geerson, Heather Arendt; Tristen Ryler, Anna Tassio; Stephen Ryan Parker, Nick Leavitt.

Goofs

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 »

Be disappointed. Be very disappointed.
18 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

'The Blair Witch Project' is, in my view, a near-masterpiece of the supernatural, and an audacious and thrilling leap into the dark in terms of popular movie-making technique.

You would think then, that its sequel couldn't possibly live up this high standard, wouldn't you?

And you would be absolutely right. 'Blair Witch 2' has about as much in common with its predecessor as 'Ishtar' does with 'Casablanca'. I won't even dignify it with an attempt to explain its plot. It has none of the atmosphere or suspense of the original, and doesn't even make a token effort to achieve it. It is utter Z-grade rubbish. I find it hard to imagine that the original producers or writers had anything to do with this follow-up, and if they did, they ought to be put in a bag full of owls.

Ghastly, idiotic rubbish. The only thing that frightens me about it is that some people probably prefer it to the original.
