Storyline

After unearthing a DV tape containing intriguing raw footage in Burkittsville's Black Hills Forest, Lane and Talia upload the video on YouTube. Then, James stumbles upon the video, and--believing that he saw an image of his missing sister, Heather, who disappeared in 1994 in the same woods while investigating the legend of the Blair Witch--he assembles a team of friends in search of answers. Convinced that she is still alive, he heads into the gloomy forest accompanied by his friend Peter; Peter's girlfriend, Ashley; the film student, Lisa, and the pair of uploaders, only to go astray in the heart of a green maze. Now, more and more, as James and his team find themselves trapped in the epicentre of the evil activity, the blood-curdling legend of the wicked sorceress seems real. Can they escape from the wrath of the demonic Blair Witch? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?

Trivia

Early scenes of the characters walking through the woods originally ran longer, as James (James Allen McCune) and Lane (Wes Robinson) debated the origins of the Blair Witch legend. Those sequences explored the idea that the "witch" wasn't something that could actually be seen. Cutting those scenes gave the film a more ambiguous, if sometimes confusing, tone. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 min) The upload date on Lane's video is shown on the computer screen as "April 20th, 2014." This is not the correct date format for YouTube. It should have read "April 20, 2014." See more »

Remember the first Blair witch movie? Yeah, then you don't need to see this. It's an updated version, but without the hype and sound design (oh, there are creepy sounds in this one too, so many in fact that they stop being creepy after a short while) that made the first one successful although not good, and slightly frightening. But sure, if you like to hear people scream names of people you don't really care about, and enjoy the tiresome jump-scares, and shaky cameras, and annoying frightened breathing noises, then you might enjoy this movie. I did not.
