Top 10 Most Disappointing Follow-Ups

Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows


The first Blair Witch Project movie was scary. It was pant-wettingly scary. The whole point of it was that no-one knew for sure whether this film actually had been found in the woods or whether it was all faked.The truth was somewhere in between – yes, it was faked but the terror in it was authentic. The unknown actors camped in the woods while the directors tried to freak them out by making strange noises and leaving tiny wooden voodoo dolls about the place. In fact, lead actress Heather Donohue was so mistrustful of the whole set-up that she carried a hunting knife with her on the set. The result was a raw, shaky, structureless film that really captured the feeling of being lost and scared in the woods.It wasn’t a film that needed a sequel. But one popped up just a year later. Filmed in the slick, boring style of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and a thousand other teen horrors, it was wooden and stilted and had little to do with the original. No wonder it has a rating of just 3.9/10 on IMDb!
