Loud noises and shaky cameras don't replace a plot, and Blair Witch doesn't have one. It also lacks the fresh documentary feel that set its predecessor apart.

Blair Witch is a valiant effort to recreate the original's alchemy, but it's no substitute for the real thing. Whatever that is.

Things naturally play out as expected - both for the black couple and for everyone else involved, a disappointingly pedestrian outcome for a reboot of such a landmark film.

Hyper-stylized to a fault, testing the viewer's endurance for being thrashed by an abrasive sensory onslaught.

Ask yourself: do you feel like watching another 90 minutes of The Blair Witch Project? Your answer will tell you all that you need to know about Blair Witch.

Barrett and Wingard did interesting things with the legacy of such a beloved piece of horror cinema.

Wingard and Barrett deliver a short, sharp movie with scares, shocks and solid characters. It's impressive that they've been able to revive a franchise many thought would remain extinct.

Dream team Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett bring an unusually hit-and-miss affair that nevertheless delivers in a frenetic final act.

Sure, the sequel has higher-quality video and more cameras and even some drone shots, but it doesn't have much in the way of soul.

It does have a charm and personality that shines through. It does a lot of stuff that's different, but also does a lot of the same. I want to see it again.

La bruja de Blair no sólo fracasa como una continuación, sino también como un found footage en general. En vista de que nadie pidió esta secuela - la primera entrega funciona perfectamente tal y como es -, ya podemos dar por muerta a esta leyenda.

Ultimately Blair Witch doesn't work because it feels too much like the same film from 17 years ago and not a film that can separate and stand on its own.

Structurally redundant as it travels down the familiar wooden path...it is too bad that he (Wingard) could not emphasize his cinematic appreciation more soundly in this woefully flaccid, forest-bound frightener.

It is without a doubt one of the bleakest, most depressing American genre films of all time.
November 5, 2018
Just as making Blair Witch is a lateral move in Wingard's career, Blair Witch as a film is little more than a step sideways from the original picture which so terrified audiences in 1999.

A cover set of The Blair Witch's Greatest Hits: Unreliable map, time-displacement, scary noises, stickmen, rockpiles, face in the camera, spooky house, stand in the corner, was-that-or-wasn't-that-a-witch, goodnight Cleveland there will be no encore.

Blair Witch is still a very competent horror film and Wingard still brings the requisite scares with energy and ferocity. Those who expect the minimalist approach of The Blair Witch Project will be disappointed...

This film meets every standard I have for a sequel: great directing, very well written story that builds on the mythology, and everything is bigger (the scares, the technology, the effects, etc).

Throughout Blair Witch I laughed, felt my heart rate rise, jump during a startling moment, and cringed at moments of gore.

While Blair Witch may seem a little too familiar at times, it has enough new ideas to justify its existence.
