Blair Witch

synopsis

THERE’S SOMETHING EVIL HIDING IN THE WOODS.

A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

review

I loved the first one because it was so original and different than any other movie I had seen to that point. Unfortunately, more of the same is not as entertaining…even with added evidentiary footage.

I was curious about the difference in the title on the poster and the actual name of the movie. A little research reveals that “The Woods was just a working title.” Still why doesn’t the actual title have any indications that it is a sequel? Dumb!
