Consensus: This sequel to Blair Witch Project is all formula and no creativity, mechanically borrowing elements from the original and other horror movies.

The inevitable sequel, Blair Witch 2: Book Of Shadows is upon us. Woe betide us all.

It at least aims for different and something that pays tribute to the first film more than anything.
