Review: Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000)

Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2
IMDB rate: 3,9
Genre: Supernatural

What a waste of time. I don't even know how I could be so stupid to watch this piece of shit again. Seriously, what the f* did I just watch. Why was this movie even released.

Yesterday I wrote a review about The Blair Witch Project, a movie that I loved very much. And for some reason, they made this sequel. They had so many options and they made this. WHY?!

To cash in on all of the "real-world" hype of the events in the first film, a man from Burkitsville, Maryland opens a "Blair Witch Hunt" tour, which shows patrons various locations from the original film. A bunch of college students decide to take the tour and wind up in Rustin Parr's house. There, they decide to camp for the evening, but in the morning, they realize they didn't sleep and they don't remember anything that happened the previous night. From there, they go back to town, and discover that something... or someone has come with them.

Okay, my guess is that someone wrote a script once and still had to fill up some details. At that point the brilliant movie The Blair Witch came out and they used The Blair Witch as the exit point for the script. This movie has nothing to do with the Blair Witch Project. It's mentioned a few times, they go to the house and stuff happens. Whatever happens is so incredibly dumb and dull that it could have been made up by a four year old. It's terrible. The only thing that had a bit of resemblance with the Blair Witch story was that their video tapes were removed. But even that was because of themselves.

Okay to start with, what was the whole point of showing Jeffrey in the mental house? Eventually they appeared all to be insane so it has absolutely no use. Second of all, most of the music used in this movie seems a lot like the music they play in a porno movie. Hearing this in a 'horror' is a bit uncomfortable as you can imagine. 

The plot... oh my god it's so terrible I don't even know what to say about it. What was the point of making this movie?! It's absolutely not creative. The dialogues are terrible and incredibly lame. 
And then there is the acting. A few actors are not even that unknown, but they were terrible. They acted so fake. And then there is this witch. 'Oh I'm a witch, blame me'. 'Oh I'm a witch, notice me'. What was the use of the addition of a witch to the movie?

What was the use of switching between handheld camera and normal style the entire time. Make a damn choice. It's pretty annoying after a while. 
All I can say is, one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

I can't believe there are people who actually liked the movie. I seriously haven't seen a movie this bad ever. I absolutely do not recommend watching this. Not only is it terrible, it also has not much to do with the Blair Witch Project. 

My personal rate: 2/10


  1. Terrible sequel and great post! I thought that this film would be good. Obviously it did horrible because we never did get a 3rd Blair Witch film haha.

    1. Well there are rumors going around saying that there is going to be a third sequel. I'm just really hoping that it's only a rumor. A third sequel can't possibly be any good. Thank you very much!
