  • Barry Hertz

    A thrill ride that’s as terrifying as it is no-nonsense.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    The movie is as good a Blair Witch film as anyone could have faithfully delivered.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Ben Travers

    Blair Witch is shot, constructed and executed just like the original. And the slow-build fright fest will please genre purists — perhaps enough to reinvigorate the potential franchise — even if it feels all too familiar to the rest of us.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Michael Gingold

    Above all, Blair Witch is a triumph of sound design. The cracks, crunches and rumbles from deep in the woods enhance a terror that’s pierced only by the beam of a flashlight.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    Wingard and Barrett’s surprise – and surprisingly strong – sequel earns its scares. An effective follow-up to a film that can’t be matched.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Kevin P. Sullivan

    Blair Witch is the Hollywoodication of a film that defied the industry, and it works because of the profound respect for the original that hides beneath camera work that’s too good and a cast that’s too attractive.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    Big kudos go out to screenwriter Barrett for creating a script that throws out so many curve balls. Just when you think the story is going in one direction — you get some nice jolts and surprise twists

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Bryan Bishop

    Wingard and Barrett add a creepy body horror element to the mix early on, and thanks to the forceful sound design there’s a greater sense of some massive, physical thing in the forest than the first film ever had — but Blair Witch is at its best when it’s honoring what has come before.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    It’s an intense, imaginative piece of work – which treads over familiar ground but modestly ventures a bit further in the climax.

    Screen International Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Blair Witch will make popcorn fly. But it won’t make anyone believe.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jordan Ruimy

    It’s a film that not only goes back to the basics, but seems to deliberately steal much of what made the original such a horrific treat.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    It's an enjoyable jumpy imitation.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Jonathan Pile

    Effectively scary and occasionally inventive, Blair Witch is a solid genre film both helped and hindered by its franchise’s place in cinematic history.

    Empire Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Setting up a number of promising kinks in the now-standard found-footage formula, as the seemingly spooked forest begins to close in its hapless victims, Blair Witch disappointingly casts most of them aside for a finale that does little to advance the series’ existing mythos.

    Variety Full Review
  • Will Ashton

    It’s an admirably well-crafted misfire, created by two of the finest filmmaking duos working together today. But perhaps that demonstrates just how singular the original remains, even to this day.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    The characters are so thinly sketched that the audience feels little emotional investment in them, and the handheld (or rather head-mounted) cameras produce the same jittery visuals that many viewers found so off-putting in the original.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    It's nothing more than a sophisticated clone of the original, and it really overdoes the shaky-camera thing - even more than in some of the worst found-footage movies The Blair Witch Project spawned.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael Nordine

    Blair Witch’s comparatively maximalist approach shows too much and scares too little.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Falling into the trap that sinks most horror sequels, Blair Witch amps the jolts and shocks with more visceral frights (there’s some business involving an infected foot wound that is truly unnerving and also super gross) to diminishing results.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    This time, it seems as if there’s a little less magic in the woods.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Wingard’s movie, for all its abundant mischief, doesn’t trust the power of its own illusion. You can see these woods a lot more clearly now, and what you see is that you’ve been here before.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Blair Witch does manage to generate occasional moments of tension, particularly when it strays from the first film’s narrative and peeks into some new dark corners.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Keith Watson

    It doesn't suggest documentary footage found in the woods so much as a haunted-house version of Hardcore Henry.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    What’s scarier—someone yelling boo or the sound of someone, or something, whispering it in the distance? Blair Witch has plenty of yelling, but not nearly enough that gets under your skin. Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    By sticking so slavishly to the original Blair Witch film’s template, the result is a dull retread rather than a full-on reinvention, enlarging the cast numbers this time but sticking to the same basic beats.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The acting and filmmaking are too crude to make you care about what happens to any of them, even though you know pretty much exactly what that will be.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Without real innovation or story evolution, Blair Witch becomes a trip down a rabbit hole of misery and suffering.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It’s a fun and mostly effective ride while it lasts, part Slenderman creepypasta weird and part full-on, nerve-jangling horror, but it’s ultimately, perhaps unavoidably, unsatisfying.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Blair Witch does deliver the requisite shocks demanded of a horror movie for a multiplex audience, but maybe it’s time for filmmakers to stay out of these woods for a while — at least until there’s a new technology for the Blair Witch to mess with.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Blair Witch styles itself as a love-letter, but it’s pure transcription.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Benjamin Lee

    If The Blair Witch Project signalled a new dawn of horror, Blair Witch is the loud death rattle of a once exciting sub-genre, disappearing into the darkness.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There’s no methodical build-up to the suspense, no time to empathize with the characters, just unneeded bits of exposition the first film didn’t need to scare you to death.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Running and screaming may be essential to a lot of horror movies, but as Blair Witch shows, they’re not scary in themselves. For that, you need the stuff between the running and screaming.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The upshot is that Blair Witch comes to the party very late and very tired, and it doesn’t improve from there.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Blair Witch runs only eight minutes past the original, yet it feels about a half-hour longer. The new toys — especially the drone — allow for fresh situations, and there’s more blood and supernatural affliction than before. Mostly, though, the filmmakers just repeat familiar moves and expand established locations

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Every attempt at fright lands with a deadening thud. For shock value, Wingard and cowriter Simon Barrett simply repeat stuff from the original film, only this time louder, lamer, duller and stupider. Scarier? That got lost in the woods with whatever you spent for a movie ticket.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Roffman

    Blair Witch is disappointing on multiple levels, all of which have nothing to do with the franchise.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Edward Douglas

    An even bigger crime is that Blair Witch isn’t particularly scary, maybe because it’s hard to take any of it seriously when it’s just treading so much similar ground as the first movie.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    A wheel-spinning homage gone terribly awry.
