It's deja vu all over again as the kiddies head back to the haunted forest in Burkittsville to try and unravel the mystery of what happened to the three victims of the original Blair Witch movie 20 years ago. The new movie repeats a ton of the action from the first movie - seemingly step by step early in the film - and doesn't really break new ground until the last 15-20 minutes. The climax of THIS film completely surpasses anything from the original and Callie Hernandez's character, Lisa, goes to some truly terrifying places. Unfortunately, we've seen the "found footage" stuff a million times now and I would have preferred a regular movie that advanced the mystery and story of the Blair Witch rather than a rehash of a truly original 20-yr old film.
Full Disclosure: I have an absolute crush on Kate Beckinsale and have often said that I could watch her read a phone book for two hours and still enjoy it. Ohhhhh what I wouldn't have given for her to have read a phone book instead of acting in this terrible film. This will easily find a place on many "Worst Films od 2016" lists as "thrillers" without a single thrill in them often do. Go see "Don't Breathe" or "Lights Out" for a second time before wasting money on this junk.
Easily the best movie I've seen this year. It has the feel of "No Country For Old Men" and the performances of the three lead actors are Oscar-worthy. While Bridges and Foster have given other outstanding performances in the past. Pine is a revelation.
