Even formula-slasher-pic fans are likely to find this hectic, unfocused effort a letdown.

More style than substance.

Isn't particularly frightening unless one considers how horrible a piece of filmmaking -- in nearly every sense of the definition -- it really is.

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

I wanted to cast a few spells myself on the writers...evil spells.

As horror sequels go, it's still better than the rest of the slop out there (aside from Scream 2), but compared to the original, it's a whopping disappointment.

The inevitable sequel, Blair Witch 2: Book Of Shadows is upon us. Woe betide us all.

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

This woefully bad horror film deserves the rudest treatment possible.

The film just doesn't make a lot of sense, and it's not compelling enough to make it worth the effort to try and figure out.
| Original Score: 2/5

Doesn't add up to much beyond a great set of conceits.

[The] tendency to cannibalize and sample from other horror flicks, made popular by the Scream series, is worse than dull. It's parasitic.

...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.

Flashy, derivative and makes absolutely no sense. It's not even scary.

A C-minus-grade horror movie barely fit for late-night cable.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

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

The sorriest quickie horror sequel since Jason turned in his hockey mask.
