Jeffrey Donovan, Erica Leerhsen. The eagerly awaited sequel to The Blair Witch Project ! A group of students fascinated with the curse of the Blair Witch go camping in those storied Maryland woods. But after they awaken with no memory of the previous night, an evil force begins to overtake them. 2000/color/90 min/R/widescreen.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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?!Read more ›
Our crew manages to make it to "ground zero" and had to tussle with another tour group. As it turns out, the witch is powerful on her home soil.
I thought this film was superior to the first one as it eliminated much of the hand held nonsense. Good story line.
Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Erica Leerhsen).
Yes, "Book of Shadows - Blair Witch 2" -- which doesn't have the Blair Witch OR a Book of Shadows -- is possibly one of the most notorious bad sequels in movie history. And even if you appreciate it purely on its own merits, it ends up being a generic horror movie that repeatedly booga-boogas you with cheap cliched scares... and then explains nothing at the end.
Tour group The Blair Witch Hunt, led by local guide Jeff (Jeffrey Donovan), is in the area where the Blair Witch supposedly killed the first film's makers. His group includes: Stephen (Stephen Barker Turner) a pretentious author; Tristen (Tristine Skyler), his pregnant doormat girlfriend; Kim (Kim Director), an obnoxious Goth; and Erica (Erica Leerhsen), a whiny irritating Wiccan who wants to be the Blair Witch's protégé. She's that stupid.
But after a night of pot and booze, they wake up to discover that they have no memory of what happened, Stephen's notes have been shredded, and Tristen is having a miscarriage. When the group holes itself up in Jeff's spooky-old-factory home, they are haunted by strange visions and hallucinations -- and they soon discover that they may not be able to trust themselves.
It's difficult to express in a mere plot summary just how ANNOYING this movie is. Not scary, annoying.Read more ›
