    I was 100% convinced that this movie will have nothing to do with the original "Blair Witch Project". I wasn`t wrong. Not entirely, anyway.
    I would not bother with explaining the plot. It`s too boring and obvious. Sure, it has some eerie moments (and a considerable amount of gore), but it`s simply not the "real thing".
    The video transfer is excellent. There are no compression signs and the picture is always clear. The visuals are so much different from the first movie in the series, that the entire Blair Witch notion is missed.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. The haunting sounds and special effects are all there and the surrounds do a pretty good job.
    The menus are all beautifully animated with sounds.
    The extras include 2 audio commentaries, some references to hidden images in the movie, a horrible music video, some production notes and 17 tracks of the movie`s musical soundtrack (if you can actually call that kind of noise music, that is). Alas, there is no behind the scenes look.
    Bottom line - a weird movie that leaves a rather stale taste when it is over.

    In my eyes the first film was the biggest over hyped peice of tripe ever. But then a Friend told me that this one was better i still was`nt convinced so i waited i while until i watched and i must admit it is a hell of alot better they`ve got rid of the mockumentry idea and settled for a proper film which is good.
    In most ways it is your typical Physchological horror and it does deliver a few scares so as a film it`s pretty good nothing to cream your pants about but worth a watch.

    Now onto the Disc

    Some pretty good extras including the secret of erserver and it`s a flip disc so you get the score as well.

    The video quality is pretty nice and clean same with the audio

    well thats another waffled review c you soon
