Storyline

Near Burkittsville, in the Black Hills Forest, on the root of a lightning-struck tree, the couple of Lane and Talia find a DV tape sticking out of the ground. The content of the found tape is mostly footage of static, however, near the end, there is also an intriguing small part where someone is trying to escape from something that is after him, screaming and running in an abandoned house. After accidentally stumbling across the uploaded footage, James, believing that this is his final chance to put an end once and for all in the unresolved mystery of his sister's Heather disappearance, some twenty years ago in the same woods, he assembles a team of friends in search of answers. Sooner or later, the team will go astray in the heart of a green maze that is riddled with the chilling legend of Elly Kedward, the Blair Witch who relentlessly keeps messing with their sanity, gradually taking them down, one by one. Eventually, James will find himself in the epicentre of the evil activity, ... Written by Nick Riganas

Decent enough
2 October 2016 | by sm_ouchSee all my reviews

A lot of hate for this movie, its not really that bad. Yeah most people are right, there are a lot of jump scares which are annoying, and a lot of the suspense of the first movie has been replaced by loud banging noises, but still, I found it fairly enjoyable. Plenty of suspense, and plenty of scenes where I was shaking my head, thinking "dont go in there" or "dont do that" with uncomfortable laughs followed. All up, if you liked The Blair Witch then you will like this one as well, if you hated the Blair Witch, then there is no point seeing this movie.(which baffled me in a lot of reviews, people saying they hated the first one and then hated this one???? Why would you bother, of course you wont like this one)
