Book of Shadows isn't going to scare anyone except the bean counters at Artisan who are counting on a big financial return.

MTV newshound Kurt Loder's wizened face is the first image in Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, and that's about as scary as this loser movie gets.

Not only is it an illogical, nastily violent affair full of stock characters and slasher-movie tactics, but it's a sequel to a movie that absolutely needed no sequel in the first place.

[It] sounds a death knell for this overhyped marketing phenomenon, and not a moment too soon.

This Witch smoothes over the on-the-cheap rough edges of the original, while venturing through those same woods basically down a path to nowhere.

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

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.

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

In ninety minutes of screen time, "Book of Shadows" doesn't provide a single moment of suspense or a single frightening scene.

This film is an utter travesty for those who loved The Blair Witch Project, those who hated it, and those who didn't really care in the first place.

For all its clever notions, Book of Shadows often seems more like a montage of pasted-together images than a coherent horror story.

Missing from the mix are any characters with whom you'd want to spend one minute around a campfire.

A peerless indignity, a club-footed vomit launch of teen-horror clichés, overproduced self-importance, and scareless gore.
