Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2


Students at a Boston college become fascinated by the events of the three missing filmmakers in Maryland, so they decide to go into the same woods and find out what really happened. They set up camp near the foundation of the house that belonged to Rustin Parr, the old hermit who was hanged for the murders of seven children, a crime that bore the mark of the Blair Witch. In the morning, the campers awake with no memory of having gone to sleep and five hours stolen from their lives. But the strange occurrences haven’t ended with that night, as legend and reality become frighteningly entwined. No longer sure what is real and what is imagined, the group starts to realize that when they left the woods, they didn’t leave alone.

Dove Review

Along with anti-Christian sentiments, the film focuses on witchcraft, to the extent of glorifying the practice of Wicca, a pagan religion. The graphic sexual situations, including orgies and lesbianism, plus a cauldron-load of objectionable language, are used to hide the ludicrous plot.
