Pointless

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.

Should Have Left Off With Book of Shadows

After hearing that the movie filming under the name of 'The Woods' was really Blair Witch, I was very excited to see it. I loved The Blair Witch Project and I even love it's sequel, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2. Despite it's generally poor reception Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 was a decent enough follow-up to The Blair Witch Project and at least tried to do something different. I think it would have been better received if the studio hadn't interfered with the cut-in shots of them running through the woods throughout, it takes away a bit of the did they/didn't they y the time it gets to the end. It certainly would have left a better legacy than the confused mess that is Blair Witch.

It starts out bland and goes downhill from there. The characterizations vary between flat and outright annoying. In a bizarre stroke of laziness the character of Lisa is the only one to even be given a last name. There will probably be unmarked spoilers from here on in because Blair Witch is so confusing that I'm not even sure what would be a spoiler and what would not be.

They take all of the mythology from The Blair Witch Project and instead of building on it they strip it, make their own and throw the rest out of the window. Much to the detriment of the movie. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 at least tried to make a different statement but kept the core mythology intact.

Every cliche from every found footage horror movie is certainly on full display here. Annoying personalities that clash? Check. Stupid decisions at every turn? Check. These are common tropes in horror but Blair Witch ratchets them up to eleven.

The one thing Blair Witch manages to avoid is the eventual found footage argument about why they keep filming. They get around that by using earcams (that stay remarkably hair-free). Of course that leaves them plenty of time to argue over even stupider stuff. Like their drone. It's established early on that it's useless but when it becomes stuck in a tree it's the end of the world.

The camera work is so jerky and choppy that through the second half of Blair Witch it becomes practically incomprehensible. Presumably scary things happen but they go by so quickly that it's hard to even make out what happened. I have a feeling that they intended to use the drone footage more than they actually did. If it was cut, my guess would be because it made theater goers ill. I don't usually have a problem with motion sickness (I was fine in the first Blair Witch) and the drone shots made me a bit queasy. I'd be curious to know if anyone else had a problem with it.

A 'creature' appears near the end but it's unclear from the movie whether or not it is the Blair Witch or not. I have heard that on the commentary the directors claim that it is not the Blair Witch and that the clues are in the movie. If anyone figures it out, please let me know. I'm not watching it again to find out. All I could tell from it was that it looked rather like a skinny, mossy Ent.

If you want a good found footage horror I'd go back to The Blair Witch Project. It at least had some effort and creativity behind it. Hell, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 for all of it's faults is great cinema next to the convoluted mess that is Blair Witch.

Creepyyy !!!!!

Was suprised by all the bad reviews i personaly think it was very scary. Lots of jumpy parts, sound, effects, and even the witch was terrifying. I love the original movie But its not as scary as this. Plus its actually conected to the original one what i liked . Everyone is different i guess and different things scares us. Hated the creepy noises she was making, hate the "paranormal activity" effects, and the ending??? Creeepy!!!!!
