This Halloween Season, re-visit the much-maligned horror sequel to The Blair Witch Project At The Revue!


Released in the Halloween season of 2000, this highly-anticipated and rushed sequel to THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT became one of the most maligned sequels of all-time when fans of its predecessor were left gobsmacked by its departure from the original's unique style and its reliance on conventional horror tropes.


Although BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2 doesn’t capture the same magic that managed to make the first film a worldwide phenomenon, it is a rare horror sequel that boldly switches gears and doesn’t spoon-feed the audience the same scares they experienced in its predecessor.


23 years later, this satirical follow-up is finally getting some appreciation for its meta-commentary on the influence of media and the blurred lines between reality and fiction. Give BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2 another chance on the big screen! (Serena Whitney - Programming Director)
