Blair Witch (2016)
Genre: Horror, Thriller
I have never seen the original movie so I am not sure how good this sequel is in comparison. However, I thought this was a pretty decent horror flick 🙂 . The narrative itself as easy to follow and actually has a believable reason for going into woods where you know bad things have already happened. There is the obvious “why would you?” in this movie as expected but I quite liked the group of friends and thought the story was enough to keep me entertained 🙂 . Even though this movie is filmed in a documentary-like style it did not hinder the film as they used all types of recording technology that we have nowadays. The horror element is alright, not too bloody so people who don’t really like “gory” horror movies can enjoy this. There are some good suspenseful scary moments that did have me on the edge of my seat. Such as the crawling underground, getting separated in the woods and the end section in the house 😀 . I loved the moments when the other two members kept returning to the group (I am trying not to spoil 😛 ) and one of my favourite scenes was the “snapping of the wicker doll”. The pacing of the movie runs steadily along and ended great (the end section was my favourite part 😀 ). Plus when you see the witch she is pretty awesome and scary at the same time 😛 . This may not be to everyone’s taste but I think this is a pretty good horror film. It is definitely worth a watch at least once 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
