A Great And Decent R-Rated Movie. (by himes-38118)
James Donahue finds a recently-uploaded video, containing an image which he believes to be his sister Heather who disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland while investigating the legend of the Blair Witch. Believing she is still alive, James makes plans to head into the woods, accompanied by friends Peter Jones, Ashley Bennett, and film student Lisa Arlington, who wants to make her own documentary based on James' search. Local residents Talia and Lane, who uploaded the footage from a video tape they found in the woods, join them on their search.Upon entering the woods, Ashley <more>
cuts her foot while the group is crossing a shallow creek. Setting up camp for the night, Lane and Talia discuss the disappearance of Heather's film crew, as well as other mysterious occurrences in the region, all of which they ascribe to the Blair Witch. After hearing noises in the woods during the night, and after inexplicably oversleeping until 2.00pm, they find strange stick figures twined together hanging from the trees surrounding their camp. Unnerved, the four friends elect to head home, despite Lane and Talia's reluctance. Lisa notices a roll of twine in Lane's backpack and accuses him of crafting the stick figures as a prank. Lane and Talia are kicked out of the group, after admitting to the ruse. After several hours' walking, the four arrive back at their original campsite, their GPS information proving to be inaccurate. Lisa sends up a drone to obtain an aerial fix of their location, but it malfunctions and crashes into the trees. Ashley develops a fever and becomes bedridden. The team is forced to camp again as night falls and Peter goes to gather firewood. After hearing strange sounds, he is chased by an unseen force which causes a tree to collapse, gravely wounding him. James, hearing Peter's cries, searches for him but only finds his flashlight by the collapsed tree.During the night, James and Lisa hear more sounds outside their tent. Moments later, Lane and Talia emerge looking haggard, claiming they have been wandering in the woods for five or more days without a single sunrise. Believing that he is hallucinating, Lane runs off while Talia begs for food and then sits by the fire and stares blankly. The following morning, James and Lisa are stunned to find that the sun indeed has not risen. Emerging from their tents, they discover many stick figures, much larger than those crafted by Lane, surrounding their camp. Talia recognizes clumps of her own hair tied to one of the stick figures. Ashley awakens and, devastated by the news of Peter's disappearance, blames Talia for their plight, spitefully snapping her stick figure in half. Talia then crumples to the ground, her body grossly mangled, twisted and broken, before an invisible presence attacks and causes them to flee in blind panic. Ashley gets separated and removes a strange object out of her leg, inexplicably embedded in her wound. She falls to her death trying to recover the drone, stuck high in a nearby tree. The camera shows her body being dragged out of the frame by an unseen force.A rainstorm envelops the woods as Lisa and James stumble outside a house which matches the one seen in Lane's video. James looks up and believes he spots his sister in an upstairs window. Despite Lisa's pleas, he enters the house and becomes trapped in an upstairs room. Lisa is terrified by the brief sight of an emaciated entity and runs inside, ending up in the basement. She finds a crazed and now heavily-bearded Lane, who traps her in an underground tunnel. Lisa forces herself through the narrow and muddy crawlspace and emerges back in the basement and stabs Lane in self-defense. Chased by the entity she glimpsed outside, Lisa runs upstairs, seeing the same reflection in the mirror that James thought was his sister. She reunites with James and they flee to the attic and lock the door behind them. A bright white light passes through the cracks and windows of the attic before the door is forced open. James tells Lisa to face the corner of the room. He desperately apologizes to Lisa for their fate before the Blair Witch causes him to think that his sister is speaking to him. James turns around and dies. Lisa uses Lane's camcorder to indirectly view what is behind her and begins walking backwards in the hope she can escape. She hears the witch imitate James' words of apology again and, believing him to be alive, turns around before being attacked off-screen. The camera abruptly drops to the floor. The screen cuts to black.
Great follow up to The Blair Witch Project. Heathers brother and 5 friends head into the woods to see if he can find his sister. If you loved the original you will love this too. The pure creepiness of the woods and those scary stick figures and piles of stones only add to the tension. And the end is a nerve wrecking ending. Is Heather trapped there or not? The Rustin Parte house is even scarier now. Just pretend Book Of Shadows doesn't exist. Do you see the witch or not? I love how the movie starts then just speeds up as it goes along. Can't wait for the next movie in the franchise. <more>
I wish they would do a prequel. I think it would be great to show Elly Kedwards story.
Really creative and still as horrifying as the first (by austinkunkle)
When i first saw the first Blair witch project that was made in 1999,I was kinda shaky around the time when they were getting to the scary parts,like whatever it is the Blair witch does. But I have to be honest,I honestly thought they were rushing through the ending a little bit,but it was still good. However,for the 2016 version,I thought they were really getting to the point to where they wanted to make it scary and spine tingling,especially with the effects they can afford now,because the first one was low budget and I can understand why it was a little lack of horror and effects. But you <more>
actually don't need effects if you're making a horror film in the woods,because being in the woods is just scary period. Even when you spend the night.1999 was really good,2016 just added on to the original with extra more scares. 2016's Blair witch was just really terrifying,and the more terrifying thing about it is there's no soundtrack,it's all music free,and the effects just make it sound so real and that's why I thought these movies were pretty scary.
It's 16 years too late for most people, but this was EXACTLY what I wanted from a Blair Witch sequel.I found it very effective and I loved the story. With the exception of the unethical marketing campaign, it has everything that made the first movie effective and then some. Yes, I know the marketing is MOSTLY what people found effective about the first film, but that magic can never be captured again, so let it go. My only complaint is that there were too many false jump scares.If you're not burnt out on found footage and you're open to the idea of a Blair Witch sequel, give it a <more>
shot.There's not much else to say without spoilers. I just wanted to stop by and offset some of the hate.
Wingard and Barrett are becoming sure-fire signs of a quality film (by jtindahouse)
There are very few filmmakers in Hollywood who can be considered a sure thing. Even some of the best, like Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino, can have their off moments and deliver a mundane experience. Christopher Nolan is the only one that comes to mind for me, who is just certain to succeed in everything he puts out there. Now it's still far too early in the careers of Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard to put them in that kind of a category, but the fact remains they are making fantastic films time and again. 'Blair Witch' is no exception.We all remember the original 'The <more>
Blair Witch Project' back in 1999. It was an astounding success that made a ton of money. It really had the potential to be the first of the multi-sequel series that are all too common today 'Saw' and 'Paranormal Activity' , but unfortunately the first sequel 'Book of Shadows' bombed, and that was that. Until today that is. 'Blair Witch' really snuck up on everybody. It was made in secret and not even announced until two months prior to being released. With an effective trailer though the hype was immediate and abundant.The film couldn't be further really from the original in terms of style, but all that shows is that Barrett and Wingard are moving with the evolution of horror. The original got by with the intensity that 'found footage' can create, but due to the popularity of this genre today ironically caused by the original 'Blair Witch' audiences are all too used to it and need something more. So the intensity is ramped up about ten notches throughout. The big finale which was very brief in the original is much more drawn out this time around and creates a quite amazing sequence in the film. It's very rare that I feel any emotion whatsoever in horror films today, possibly because I have simply seen so many of them, so when a film does give me an uneasy feel, not only do I welcome it with open arms, but I commend that film immensely as well. That was certainly the case here with 'Blair Witch'. Another brilliant showing from Barrett and WIngard and as I always seem to be saying about them, I can't wait to see what they do next.
What makes a Horror movie scary. spoilers (by shanepealow)
I was and still am a huge fan of the first original 1999 film and when I saw the previews for this one it seemed the writing was sticking to the original's story which got me excited. The initial sequels back in the early 2000's were terrible which also made me go into this movie with doubts...but boy was I wrong. This movie is sticking to the roots of limited budget and total isolation which made the first such a great film. Both the original and this new Blair Witch have a unique realistic feel of total isolation which makes the film instantly creepy.There are 3 things which make <more>
this a perfect horror movie. 1."Build-up/Anticipation": This movie and also series has perfected building up their horror such as the likes of Alien, which follow the idea of only showing the "creature/evil entity" only a few times or if at all until the vary end and even in the end only show it a few times. This style makes it much more frightening as your uncertain of the whereabouts of it and also when it will appear next. The original 1999 version didn't even show a witch which still left people guessing on whether or not it was actually a witch or possibly something else like a crazy man or themselves turning on each other. But the 2016 version solidifies that it was in fact a witch and also that they were turning on each other in both the 1999 and 2016 groups. 2."Total Isolation": Being completely isolated with no one able to come across you or with no ability to send word for help in a dire situation is scary enough even if its not a horror movie, so its no coincidence that a movie based on people being lost in the woods would garner fear. The Black hills forest in the movie is isolated in two ways, one is the fear of the local population to venture in it due to its reputation, and two the witches curse on the woods keep small groups trapped by interfering with their navigation and manipulating time. 3."Helplessness": Being utterly helpless or giving up and excepting your situation is helpless is a bitter pill to swallow and will break many people, for example getting your leg trapped under a rock while hiking or being surrounded and besieged during war. This helplessness becomes more and more apparent as the movie goes on, some of the cast give up and serve the witch and others continue to fight till their deaths. You really see the horror of this helplessness when Lisa is in the tunnel trying to escape and gets stuck, this is a very good scene as she almost breaks down and gives up but keeps fighting. Other characters such as Lane and James give up entirely and serve the witch. Despite us the viewer cheering for Lisa or Heather in the two movies to finally make their way out of the forest it is hopeless and makes true that all who venture alone or in a small group into the Black hills forest will not make it out alive.
You can't win either way, Blair Witch (by AdrenalinDragon)
What were people expecting? The same movie as the original, or something extremely different? As for me, I thought Blair Witch was a pretty good modern take on the series. Is it perfect? No. Is it the same as the original? Well, they become quite tonally different halfway. In the second half, the new one tries something different at the cost of people moaning about it revealing too much now.I personally am glad the new Blair Witch is not exactly the same. I thought it was logical for the sequel to build up from its simplicity to something more intense. The last 20 minutes in particular was <more>
quite nerve-wracking, and the ending is no worse than what the original Blair Witch Project did. I think the problem is that when The Blair Witch Project came out, it was a groundbreaking low budget film that made its scariness effective though simplicity.The new Blair Witch didn't want to retread the "exact" same ground the entire time, so they tried to make the second half different to try and appease the people who found the first film boring as hell. The result is mixed on people saying it's too different from the original, or too similar to other found footage films. I think they got the balance just right here, and the characters for the majority of the time made reasonable decisions and had good equipment with them to justify all of the recording and situations they were in. If there's a significant flaw I can point out with it, then the "jump scares" were maybe done too much to the point where a character says to stop doing that. However, make no mistake, this movie is pretty terrifying. I still prefer the original though, but of all the found footage movies I've seen, Blair Witch has quite a significant amount of effort put into it.7.5/10
You know when a horror movie has a quote saying "One of the scariest movies ever made" attached to its trailer and then you see it and feel as if you were cheated by that movie because it wasn't actually scary at all? Well, that's so not the case with Blair Witch, the surprise sequel to The Blair Witch Project, a movie that redefined the horror genre back in 1999. Now, I'm no horror aficionado but Blair Witch is one of the most terrifying experiences I've had in the cinema.Twenty-two years after his sister and friends disappeared while documenting their trip to <more>
investigate the Blair Witch legend, James Donahue James Allen McCune plus three of his college friends and two local residents venture into the same woods to try and find them.Strange occurrences and a strong supernatural presence makes them come to the realisation that the legend of the Blair Witch is true and their lives are now the ones in danger.First things first, I love how nobody knew anything about this being a sequel to The Blair Witch Project until barely two months ago at San Diego Comic-Con, having been filmed and marketed under the name The Woods, leading to a lot of talk and buzz about Blair Witch prior to release.It's great to see a director like Adam Wingard take on the challenge of making a sequel that isn't just a carbon copy of its predecessor, instead choosing to take elements and build upon them to create a sequel that, I think, surpasses the original.Blair Witch once again plays out in the found footage style that the original made so popular however, with the advancements in technology, there are more devices the filmmakers could use such as drones and go pro cameras rather than just the hand-held models.It makes for a much more intense and fear inducing experience when the cameras used to capture the footage offer more stability. There are a few really good sequences throughout because of this, including a few nailbiting first person shots that will leave you on the edge of your seat.The use of sound too plays a pivotal part in building the audience's fear, Wingard showcasing that he knows how to make an effective horror flick, the moments of silence proving unbearable at times.The performances and script are always key in the difference between a good and bad horror movie. In Blair Witch, both are good enough for the audience to buy into the story. The stand-outs for me were either James Allen McCune or Callie Hernandez as Lisa, who has to do a lot of terrified close-ups in her role.Blair Witch's strongest asset, like its predecessor, is the fear of the unknown. I said it about The Blair Witch Project and I'll say the same about Blair Witch; it's so good to see a horror movie willing to not blow its load early and keep the audience in the dark as much as the characters.
I'm not the biggest fan of the original "The Blair Witch Project," but I'm enough of one to have had some specific hopes and expectations for this film. I don't know what other reviewers were expecting, but I had three requirements aside from general quality of direction :We see just a little more - What we see is weirder - When it's over, we still have questionsI was not let down on any of those counts. The fact that the plot mirrors the plot of the original isn't really a detriment to me, because these films aren't about the plot. They're about the <more>
process of investigating something that doesn't make sense.The found footage sub-genre has come to mean any film made up of characters recording each other, but both "The Blair Witch Project" and "Blair Witch" are a little more than that; they're the film equivalent of anthropological digs. The original film set the precedent, and uncovered just enough evidence to scare us and set our minds wondering. The new film retraces its path with a fresh set of investigators, and they dig a little further below the surface, to uncover something even nastier. Both are about what happens when the work--the body of knowledge you've painstakingly assembled--turns on you, and refuses to let you back out.If this logical progression isn't enough to drive a faithful sequel, then what would be? "Book of Shadows" tried to be a meta-fictional commentary on the first film, which would be the *cool* thing to do, except that it received far more criticism. It could avoid the found footage format completely and be a traditional horror film, but it would have to work even harder to distinguish itself, let alone keep that Blair Witch feel. The filmmakers wanted to go back to the things that worked in the original, removed from the Internet and word of mouth, and to do that they needed to get people in those woods, and to give them video cameras. There are only so many plausible ways to go about that.There were flaws to the film, the biggest being the unnecessary amount of jump scares. I think given what the whole "Blair Witch" concept is, though, they made just about the best film they could.
