Review

Our Score
First of all, there is no mention of a book of any sort in this sequel to the phenomenally successful The Blair Witch Project. Second, there are hardly any scares, either. The story begins as a group of misfits interested in the original film sign up for a tour of Burkittsville, where the first movie was set. They spend the night in the woods, then wake up the next morning unable to recall any of the previous night's events. What has happened to the video footage recorded during the night? Why have the group got strange marks on their bodies? And what happened to another bunch of tourists found disemboweled on Coffin Rock that morning? Sadly, the outcome is as predictable as this set up implies. Whether you love or hate the original, there's no denying that it was an innovative idea, brilliantly marketed, which fired many an evening's conversation. The only thing people will say after seeing this sequel is "Can I have my money back?"

Summary

Tourists head for the woods of Burkittsville, Maryland, where a local has set up a Blair Witch tour to cash in on the success of the low-budget shocker. However, it is not long before their light-hearted jaunt descends into a terrifying mix of nightmare and madness. Horror sequel, starring Kim Director, Jeffrey Donovan, Erica Leerhsen, Tristen Skyler and Stephen Barker Turner.
