Sexier and pacier than its predecessor, but still occupying the same psychological horror genre, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 takes up the Blair Witch story one year on from the time when the three student filmmakers went missing in Maryland's Black Hills. Flashbacks and forward leaps are agitatedly and excitedly cut together, drawing us quickly back into the terror territory of the original movie. Once again, to blur the line between fiction and reality, the actors use their own names for their characters. Jeffrey Donovan is Jeff, a Burkettsville entrepreneur making a fortune from selling Blair Witch memorabilia. He has the bright idea of starting Blair Witch tours, but on his inaugural one the malign spirits of the wood make mischief once more.
Director Joe Berlinger previously worked on a real-life documentary about a Wiccan who was executed for murders he may not have committed. Parallels with this story and the plot of Book of Shadows are clearly visible and the influences cited by Berlinger--Rosemary's Baby and The Shining--shed their demonic shadow throughout. --Lorna Read
On the DVD: the film may have divided critics, but no-one can deny that this special two-disc edition of the Blair Witch sequel is positively packed with added value. Firstly there's the "Secret of Esrever" ("Secret of Reverse") which alludes to ghostly goings on during the filming and then challenges the viewer to find the secret apparitions dotted around the film--although whether it sheds any more light on the plot is open to debate. Director Joe Berlinger's commentary is informative, talking as he does about the personal issues (how he lost some editorial control over the project) and about bringing the myth to life. Book of Shadows is presented in its original 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio, with a sharp-looking anamorphic transfer and intentional graininess that adds to the overall effect. The audio is also an important factor as the soundtrack uses disjointed voices, screams and the excellent music of composer Carter Burwell to build tension. There are also two "mockumentaries"--"Shadow of the Blair Witch" is about the events that the sequel is based on and "The Burkittsville 7" looks at the grisly murders of seven children by the hermit Rustin Parr. --Kristen BowditchSee all Product Description

The plot, characters and dialogue were confused- but not in a 'wow what's going to happen to these poor souls?' way-more in a 'what the hell is going on now- and could I care any less?' kind of way!
Only good bit for me was the disused building looked an amazing place and the Scooby Doo style van looked pretty cool.
This DVD does feature a bunch of special features, but so did the Titanic, and we all know how that turned out. The most important thing to keep in mind about this film is the fact that, despite its promises, it really has nothing to do with the Blair Witch. Oh, they talk about her and show us Coffin Rock and the foundation of Parr's house and a few ghostly images of children, but The Book of Shadows does little more than parody everything that was so fascinating and innovative about the Blair Witch Project. Thanks to Heather, Josh, and Michael's incredible, unscripted performance in the original, the legend of the Blair Witch may indeed never die-this will only be despite the determined attempt made to kill it by the makers of this atrocious sequel.
The challenge in conceptualizing such a plot is huge, since the 'reality' element (or as some would prefer to call it 'mockumentary' element) could no longer be duplicated. I think it was a clever idea to point a finger at the first movie and distnace the plot from it considerably, along with the manner in which the movie was executed. Nevertheless, the movie manages to stay true to the essence of what made the original a success, i.e. the eerieness and creepiness. The Blair Witch series is not about blood and gore in your face, its about leaving the horror to your imagination: afterall, what could be more scarier than the imagination itself. The movie will coax you and guide you into the shadows and fears of your mind....and you will love the movie for it!
With reference to the special features, the 'Secret of Reverse' is an interesting piece, and will engross the willing into delving even deeper into the cult that is the Blair Witch.
If you liked the original because you thought it was a 'true story', then skip the sequel. If you liked it for its 'originality' and ability to scare in the absence of blood, gore, a soundtrack and the works....then yes, go for it!
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 ›
