The film follows a group of college students ventures into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James Donahue's sister, Heather, who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch after her disappearance 15 years prior. Unfortunately for them, the same trouble then comes for them.
The original was released in 1999 and told the story of three student filmmakers who disappeared while hiking in the Black Hills near Burkittsville, Maryland in 1994 to film a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch. Despite having a production budget of only $60,000, it went on to gross almost $250 million at the box office.
The sequel will be released into UK cinemas on September 16th this year. You can check out the original here in hmv's online store.
