Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 2000
As it follows the twisted path traveled by five people fixated on “The Blair Witch Project,” “Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2” journeys into a dark and dangerous place where the line between truth and fiction blurs and perhaps vanishes altogether.

The ritual involves a boulder stolen from Stonehenge, the use of Silver Shamrock masks and a triggering device contained in a television commercial — all designed to kill millions of children.

So how many of these have you seen? Of the 8 which one’s do you rate? I have seen Season of the Witch which was totally awful and in my opinion out of character with the series, Blair Witch 2 which was stupid, Jason X which was just too far, Leprechaun which was, mm, yes just mm. But l did like Pulse.
