Stupid, predictable and corny, and gave me a good laugh.

This is one of the stupidest horror movies out there! I hate that it even carries the Blair Witch name. The scenario is just like any teen horror movie, and predictable as hell. Instead of being scared, I laughed nearly the entire movie, for it's predictably, and it's cheesiness. The ending was totally expected, the flying tent scene had me cracking up, the crackling leg scenes, and stupidity of all the characters, gave me the best laughs I've had in a long time. Can't anyone write and direct a really scary, but not gory suspenseful horror movie like the original Blair Witch Project? Instead of it being a horror film, it should have been labeled comedy, like Scary Movie. I'll just pretend it isn't a sequel to The Blair Witch Project, which will always be my favorite horror film, and one I watch every October, and never tire of. If only someone would make another like it, instead of the same ole, same ole.
