Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000)

Following the hysteria surrounding "The Blair Witch Project" Burkittsville resident Rustin Parr builds a tourism business off of it, selling Blair Witch merchandise and taking groups on tours of the woods where it was all meant to have happened. When Rustin takes a group of college kids in to the woods they end up at his home after they wake and strange things start to go down. But that is nothing compared to what happens then the get to his abandoned home in the woods.

I wasn't a fan of "The Blair Witch Project" and struggled to see what all the fuss was about and unsurprisingly I care even less for the sequel "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" as being a cynic this is simply an attempt to cash in on the popularity of the first movie. Now in fairness I actually think the idea of building a storyline around a man who set up a tourism business on the back of a movie is a clever idea as just doing the same thing as the first movie would have been mind numbingly repetitive.

Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000)

Unfortunately whilst the basic idea is a good one the way the storyline in "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" unfolds and pretty much everything else is tedious and not that entertaining. Look I don't plan to waste words on "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" so whilst we have this storyline about a group who encounter something strange going on whilst Rustin has a history of being in a psychiatric hospital this is one of those movies where we have good looking people where dumb horror stuff goes on and it relies heavily on you being attracted to the women rather than the horror stuff for it to entertain.

What this all boils down to is that whilst I like the basic idea for "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" and think it could have had legs the end product ends up weak and at times little more than an attempt to make money off of the first movie's popularity rather than to actually deliver entertainment.
