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

    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. show more
