Blair Witch 2 : Book of Shadows (2000)
Director: Jo Berlinger
Main Stars: Jeffery Donovan, Stephen Barker Turner, Erica Leerhsen , Tristine Skyler, Erica Leershen, Kim Director
Storyline: A group of young people after viewing the Blair Witch Project explore the myth.
Review (Spoils): due to the success of the film someone decides to cash in on this and opens the Blair Witch Hunt Tour. A group of young people join this to see what the myth is all about as they loved the film. They end up in Rustin’s Parr’s old house and spend the night. They did not sleep at all that night and realise yet they don not remember anything that happened. After investigating this truth comes out that the witch has come for them.
If you took the tag of the Blair Witch off this film and changed the myth to something else this film actually would have been decent. Unfortunately how do you try to make a sequel to something that was sold as a video tape of a real documentary? You can’t …so that’s why this film was set to fail. The film outside of the name is actual good. We have some trippy nightmares, some blood and some babes (Kim Director the goth chick of my heart). The play back of the film within the story is actually fun and this does pass off as a nice haunted film but drop the idea of it being Blair Witch.
Rating: I will honestly say I never understood why people went crazy for the Blair Witch Project as I found myself bored in the theater till the very end. Was it unique yes but at least this has some babes and it’s more like a haunted cabin film which in a way was the more interesting part of the first film. Now does that make this a classic and the original not? Of course not…. But you can drink to the goth babe!
