A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I thought the original BLAIR WITCH PROJECT was a darkly brilliant film; perhaps the most "believable" found footage film I have watched to this very day.  BLAIR WITCH II: BOOK OF SHADOWS sucked nuclear waste water.  Not the clear but radioactive stuff where reactor rods are dumped to cool, either, I'm talking like nuclear waste water from the latrine of the irradiated mutants in THE HILLS HAVE EYES.

   So it was with some trepidation that I approached the recent reboot, BLAIR WITCH.  I was pleasantly surprised by how good this one was; it had several great homages to the original film while still being a powerful, stand-alone horror movie in its own right.

   It's twenty years since Hannah and her friends disappeared in the woods outside Burkettsville, searching for the legendary Blair Witch.  Now her younger brother Paul - only five when his older sister vanished - is heading into the same woods, looking for clues as to her fate.  Specifically, he hopes to find the house that featured so prominently in the last few minutes of her recovered tapes - a house which investigators and searchers never found a trace of.  His three friends are joined by a pair of enthusiastic locals, and of course, once they pitch their tents in the deep woods and bed down for the night, the weird stuff begins.  Creepy and fun, this movie is an excellent follow-up to the brilliant original.  As for BOOK OF SHADOWS, let us not speak its name again.  Ever.   4.5/5

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
