Product Description

Amazon.ca

This thoroughly second-rate follow-up to the groundbreaking (and highly profitable) horror flick The Blair Witch Project--produced by Blair Witch directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez--plays with the notions of reality and fantasy that surrounded the hype of the original movie, and attempts to throw in some scares along the way. A year after the release of the original film, a group of five Blair Witch aficionados--four out-of-towners led by one seriously unhinged "tour guide"--venture into the woods outside Burkittsville, Maryland, on a tour of the sites made famous by missing documentarians Heather, Mike, and Josh. After a drunken night of camping out in hopes of communing with the spirit of the Blair Witch, the five wake up to find that their seemingly innocent sleep may have been disturbed somehow. But what exactly happened? If you're expecting suspense of the first degree and a horrifying payoff similar to the one that climaxed the first film, you'll be sorely disappointed. After retreating to an old, run-down broom factory (get it? Broom factory? Blair Witch? Oh well...), the five go over their videotapes of the night in question to get some answers, and basically wind up screaming at each other for the remainder of the film, and shedding some blood along the way. Documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger (of the highly acclaimed Paradise Lost and Brother's Keeper) proves that he should definitely stick to nonfiction filmmaking, and the entire cast is grating and unpleasant, aside from a scene-stealing turn by Kim Director as a goth chick with attitude to burn and a no-nonsense approach to this Blair Witch stuff. Strictly for hard-core Blair Witch fans only, and even then this sequel may prove to disappoint. --Mark Englehart

Format:DVD
This film gets put down alot mostly from the people who liked the first blair with movie, and compare this to that one. Well I completly hated the first movie! and blame that film for beeing the reason reality TV infests our telivisions these days!
So if you hated the first film, you probably would like this one! because it is nothing like the first crappy movie! Tho if your a fan of the first movie, youll probably hate this one!
This movie is not shot like on an amatuer camera, like its pethitic first movie did, that movie that claimed was a real story, and then admitted it was not, just to make money!
This film is about a couple of people who loved the story of the Blair Witch so much, they meet through a web site, and go on a maiden voyage trek out to the Blair Woods to find the place where the events happend from the movie! They find themselves then not remembering what happend the night they partied out in the blair woods, and try to remember what happend? but they have been touched by the Blair Witch, and delusions play on there mind! and the story gets intresting from there on.
It might take a second time look to understand some parts? as it tends to skip from an event taking place afterwards, and then showing what happend after that, and then all coming into place in the end! But once you figure out how there presenting this and what the cut to one part to the other is , its easier to follow.
In all, I think this is a great film! But as long as your not one of those people who loved the first film, and want to put this one down for not beeing done the same way, they you may actually enjoy this film! But its not for all tastes. I'd recomend a rental before thinking about buying it?!

5.0 out of 5 stars better than some snot-nosed chick in your face Nov. 2 2003
Format:DVD
this movie is a must-see....i am truly disappoited that more people didnt like it just because its not like the first one. really though, its better than the first one. the first one kind of ticked me off with that snot-nosed chick always with her face stuck in the camera and screaming all the time. bw2 has an excellent plot and storyline and makes you think. it messes with your mind. and may leave you wondering that if you mess with evil or go looking for evil it may just find you and take a bite right out of your brain. see it for yourself, but please, only see it with an open mind.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good idea but Poor execution May 18 2004
Format:DVD
When I first heard about about a Blair Witch sequel, I thought why? Here was this little indy movie, that made a ton of cash, was the water-cooler talk for the better part of a year, and was a truly unique film. Why try to top, or equal that? Of course, Hollywood saw a possible cash cow and a big studio jumped in and tainted the Blair Witch name. Now, I have to give the sequel credit in that it didn't just throw another group of kids into the woods and rehash the story from part one. The idea of Book of Shadows is actually a neat idea, but the execution of that idea was horrible. First of all, we are presented with such an annoying group of people to follow in Book of Shadows, I am immediately ready for the killing to begin. Seriously, I was praying Jason would come stumbling out of the woods with his hockey mask and machete to hasten the demise of this cast of characters that no one could relate to. The special effects get ramped up right along with the volume of the soundtrack, and I guess the producer hoped you wouldn't notice the bad acting and lack of story?? I see this movie is listed at under $2 used here on Amazon......Is it worth it? Not really, if you are like me and enjoy watching crappy movies now and again (Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Next Generation anyone?) then pick it up, but be warned...this could be one of those movies where in six months you may ask yourself "Was it really that bad?", pull it out to see and doom yourself to another wasted evening!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sequel Curse Strikes. April 12 2004
Format:DVD
I absolutely loved The Blair Witch Project. Even when my friends got horribly mad when it came to light that it was fiction (we all followed the movie before it came out in theatres), I still found it to be unique and unabashedly creative. So, when a sequel surfaced, I was there -- opening night. Ohhhh yeah.
A few years after that night, sure, I can still watch this movie, but it's with a grain of salt. The documentary aspect of the original has vanished. Gone are the wobbly cameras and introduced is the epitome of Hollywood messing with a good thing. If you're looking for a TRUE sequel, this isn't it. It's more like a movie that was "inspired by" The Blair Witch Project.
It is the strictly fictional (which is not misrepresented) misadventures of a group doing a Blair Witch Tour that was inspired by the hordes of people who flocked to Burkittsville, MD after the original movie came out. The characters are cookie-cutter. There's the requisite Gothic girl whose black clothing and penchant for eyeliner scare the local hicks, the requisite girl who gets naked on film, the requisite psycho guy who's just trying to stay out of the mental hospital and then the other two characters who, despite the fact that one of them has an intricate role, fails to really make a lasting impression.
It doesn't seem like anyone really tried all that hard to make a movie with staying power beyond the $8 you paid to see it. It is a total B-level movie that made B-level money with a B-level cast that just so happened to have A-level promotion and an important name to live up to. I had heard before this movie came out that they were to make a prequel film as "Part III".
