A group of tourists arrive in Burkittsville, Maryland after seeing The Blair Witch Project (1999) to explore the mythology and phenomenon, only to come face to face with their own neuroses and possibly the witch herself.
Stephen Barker Turner,
Near Burkittsville, in the Black Hills Forest, on the root of a lightning-struck tree, the couple of Lane and Talia find a DV tape sticking out of the ground. The content of the found tape is mostly footage of static, however, near the end, there is also an intriguing small part where someone is trying to escape from something that is after him, screaming and running in an abandoned house. After accidentally stumbling across the uploaded footage, James, believing that this is his final chance to put an end once and for all in the unresolved mystery of his sister's Heather disappearance, some twenty years ago in the same woods, he assembles a team of friends in search of answers. Sooner or later, the team will go astray in the heart of a green maze that is riddled with the chilling legend of Elly Kedward, the Blair Witch who relentlessly keeps messing with their sanity, gradually taking them down, one by one.

Okay, so the Blair Witch. Who is she really?
Elly Kedward. That's what most people say. She was accused of witchcraft after some of the children in town said that she'd taken blood from them. There wasn't much of a trial system back then. Townspeople took her out to these woods, tied her to a tree and left her to die of exposure.

this was bad, just plain bad... if you want to hear people screaming erratically for an hour, or bad acting or completely moronic character then this movie is for you... literally nothing in this movie makes sense at all its all just a mystery blame on a "witch", when there's no damned witch in the whole movie ... should be called the "Blair Monster and whiny kids", the characters by and large aren't even as intelligent as kids... the first Blair Witch wasn't great but its at least worth a second watch and cost 100x less to make, had better acting, a better story and was made by people we never made a movie before and weren't even actor, they were film students, even the second movie was fairly good, the Blair Witch was a modern cult classic... this... this was just bad.... a blatant cash grab by talentless hacks, exploiting the cult classic.
the only reason I didn't give this movie only a 1 was because the first 10 minutes were watchable and tolerable.... it all downhill from there.
