The Blair Witch Project 2: Books of Shadows (2000) Review:

This sequel of the brilliant found footage “was highly disappointing for both the producers, who were hoping for a profit comparable to the first movie and the spectators, who were hoping for a scary film in the vein of its predecessor.

The main reason for that double fail is pretty simple to me…it is a bad movie! Allow me to explain myself. Though the film partially uses hand-camera type shooting, the main found footage concept was given up here…which I think was a big mistake! The dark atmosphere from the first film is still partially there, but the suspense is gone and the movie not scary anymore. Worst, some scene is actually quite laughable, and the film credibility loses a lot from that. On the brighter side, I found the story kind of interesting in this sequel, at least better than the original Blair Witch film whose plot fits in a couple of lines, and I liked the end of this one.

I think viewer should be warned that Book of Shadows is not really a sequel but a film made with the Blair Witch name in it, and only loosely related to the first movie. It is a very commercial film as compared to the first one and one can feel that the producers have pushed for this film to be made for a larger (teen) audience. In the end, no one really liked that sequel…I hope producers will understand one day that horror fans are not stupid and do NOT like lame commercial horror!
