Review of ‘Blair Witch’ on Nerd Bastards


Not to sound like a broken record, but here was another sequel movie that I was really looking forward to but never failed to disappoint. To make matters worse, I was especially excited to see it after getting myself re-jazzed about all things Blair Witch by talking to two of the people involved with the original earlier this summer. Sigh. So much for recapturing the magic of ’99…

In a nutshell, if you saw and liked the first Blair Witch Project back in 1999, then you’ve know everything you need to about Blair Witch. It does everything you expect a horror sequel to do with more more money, more scares and more cameras, but it does absolutely nothing different or challenging with whole Blair Witch concept. What’s all the more disappointing is that this was directed by Adam Winegard, who made some damn interesting films like The Guest and Who’s Next? This is a failure on almost every level, and that’s a shame.
