Consensus: Writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait's first foray into horror doesn't break any new ground, but it does wring fresh terror from a well-worn genre formula -- and offers a few nasty laughs in the bargain.

Enthusiasts of the simplicity of the original "Blair Witch" picture will admire that it falls well within the tradition of keeping things low-tech.

Willow Creek is a blatant, unapologetic ripoff of The Blair Witch Project, and a pretty bad one at that. The acting is not up to par with the amateurs in Blair… More
