SYNOPSIS

Dua puluh tahun telah berlalu sejak saudari James dan dua orang temannya menghilang di Black Hills Forest di Maryland ketika menyelidiki legenda Blair Witch, meninggalkan jejak-jejak spekulasi dan kecurigaan. James (James Allen McCune) dan temannya Peter (Brandon Scott), Ashley (Corbin Reid), serta mahasiswa film, Lisa (Callie Hernandez), pergi menjelajahi hutan yang sama dan masing-masing membawa kamera, berharap untuk dapat mengungkap misteri hilangnya orang-orang tersebut. Awalnya, mereka optimis, terutama ketika dua penduduk setempat, Lane (Wes Robinson) dan Talia (Valorie Curry), menawarkan diri untuk menjadi pemandu mereka melalui hutan yang gelap dan berliku. Tetapi dengan bergulirnya malam, kelompok ini didatangi oleh sosok yang mengancam. Perlahan, mereka menyadari bahwa legenda Blair Witch benar-benar nyata dan lebih menakutkan daripada yang mereka bayangkan.

 

It’s been 20 years since James’s sister and her two friends vanished into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland while researching the legend of the Blair Witch, leaving a trail of theories and suspicions in their wake. James (James Allen McCune) and his friends Peter (Brandon Scott), Ashley (Corbin Reid) and film student Lisa (Callie Hernandez) venture into the same woods each with a camera to uncover the mysteries surrounding their disappearance. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals Lane (Wes Robinson) and Talia (Valorie Curry) offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods. But as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realise the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

BLOGGERS REVIEW

AMIR SYARIF SIREGAR (Amir at the Movies)

What’s the difference between this one and the legendary The Blair Witch Project? This one has Adam Wingard uses a drone camera so he shakes the camera more than any other movie in the history of cinema. Fortunately, Wingard’s strong and tight direction able to overcome the now overly familiar found-footage movie formula heavily used by the movie’s screenplay. Most of the scarejumps here are a lot more effective than on the movie’s predecessor and the performances by its cast are also pretty solid. Not Wingard’s most satisfying work but definitely will still please many horror fans. Rating: ★★★1/2

DIAKSA ADHISTRA (Mokino)

Pengulangan lagi, kurang special. Cuma kaget-kagetannya lumayan lah ya. Rating: NA

ELBERT REYNER (Daily Cinephile)

Blair Witch may be a little bit too familiar to the first one, but Adam Wingard improvises with deeper mythology and amazing twist in the end. Rating: ★★★★

HARY SUSANTO (Movienthusiast)

Yang bosan dengan seri pertamanya mungkin akan lebih puas dengan Blair Witch yang penuh teror dan ancaman nyata serta lebih banyak penjelasan. Rating: ★★★1/2

JOSEP ALEXANDER (Postingan Biasa)

NA. Rating: ★1/2

PASKALIS DAMAR (Sinekdoks)

Blair Witch is only good ’cause it’s a sequel of The Blair Witch Project and it manages to get scarier than the predecessor. The rest are only a slack screamfest full of loud and chaotic horrors, with Wingard’s sense of black comedy (Trust me there is!) Rating: ★★★

TEGUH RASPATI (UlasanPilem)

Apakah film ini lebih baik dibandingkan The Blair Witch Project? Tergantung. Bagi saya, Blair Witch hanyalah update. Film ini mungkin adalah usaha murahan untuk mengkomersialisasikan merek yang sudah menjadi cult, namun paling tidak, yang ini lebih baik daripada Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 yang saya yakin sudah tak kita ingat lagi. Rating: ★★★
