Illustrates the often blurry and always terrifying line between truth and fiction

Not nearly as original as The Blair Witch Project, but has its moments.

Diverting and unexpectedly funny, and it delivers a few well-fashioned jolts that should please horror junkies.

Laced with just enough intelligence and originality to modestly recommend it.

There are moments of pleasure, humor and, yes, terror to be had here all the same.

Maybe it's all of the artificially flavored butter topping talking, but I thought BWP 2 was a damn fine little thriller!

...though this isn't a movie with enough redeemable features to be leveled with the original, it is, at least, still a mildly engaging horror flick with enough tension and energy to work up the audience.

A decent psychological mystery filled with paranoia and delusions, which messes with your head and demands that you keep thinking about it, even after you've left the theatre.

Clever, entertaining, and thought-provoking, a purely original thriller that is able to stand on its own two feet.

It's a surprisingly intelligent and welcome addition to a genre that's usually a dumping ground for low budget efforts.

While it's not as clever as it thinks it is, it's considerably better than we had any right to expect.

It's better made than the original, and its writing contains a subtlety and wit the original film lacked.

The arguing goes on and on, until you just want someone to die so you can go home already.
