Berlinger has approached Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 with intelligence and even a bit of thematic heft. But, frankly, the cheap thrill is gone.
Resembles an old Nine Inch Nails video. Missing from the mix are any characters with whom you'd want to spend one minute around a campfire.
If you're going to direct a piece of crass, nonsensical junk, at least have the decency to release it straight to video, where it belongs.
While the first movie steadily tighened its vise, the second loosens its grip through strained acting and incoherent plotting.
A peerless indignity, a club-footed vomit launch of teen-horror clichés, overproduced self-importance, and scareless gore.
Cult shocker has been turned into throwaway megaplex fodder.
Few movies have spread their fibs or facts as clumsily as this one. There's not an emotionally plausible moment in the picture.
If you harbor any fond feelings for the original, stay far away from this mess.
