A direct sequel to the 1999 film The Blair Witch Project, Blair Witch, aka Blair Witch 3, follows a young man who ventures into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland with his friends to uncover the mystery surrounding his missing sister. Her disappearance 17 years earlier is believed to be connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first, the group is hopeful, but as the night wears on, a visit from a menacing presence soon makes them realize that the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have ever imagined.

To describe it briefly, Blair Witch is an unnecessary follow-up to the original movie, as it is simply a lazy rehash of the latter. But in its last 20 minutes, the movie introduces a horror device that makes it a little bit gripping. The protagonists find out that you can’t directly look at the witch, so to see the villain, they cleverly stand with their backs to her while filming her with their cameras.
