Ignoring the dire 2000 sequel, this return to Blair Witch country features a new group of documentarians, led by the brother of the still missing Heather, who mounted the first attempt to uncover the local legend. Having stumbled across a YouTube video that suggests his sister might still be alive, he convinces five companions to accompany him into the cursed forest, and before long the signature sticks and stones begin appearing around their campsite. Director Adam Wingard (You’re Next) respects what made The Blair Witch Project work, recreating the shakycam and adding his own sinister touches. If you regard the original as a terrifying classic, you’ll find this sequel superfluous. If you’re still wondering what all the fuss was about, this is the Blair Witch film you’ve always wanted to see.
