Director Joe Berlinger could have very easily repeated the formula with Book of Shadows in order to cash in. Have a few more kids go into the woods and get murdered while screaming and shaking the camera. Give audiences precisely what they ate up last time.
Easy, right? Instead, he opted for something different, a movie that comments on its predecessor and manages to work the Blair Witch craze into the plot. In the world of Book of Shadows, The Blair Witch Project was a fictional movie, and the characters themselves are fans of it, thus placing them on our level. How cool is that? Five protagonists take a tour of the woods where Blair Witch was shot, just as any cinema geek may want to visit the set of their favorite horror film.

They review the tapes and find a naked Erica dancing around a tree. In response, she runs to a room to pray.
Kim drives to a store to get beer and has a dispute with one of the locals. Back at Jeff's, she reaches into her shopping bag and pricks herself on a nail file. She doesn't recall grabbing it and it has blood on it.
The next morning, Erica goes missing. No one hear the dog-bark front door and she's not inside. Kim finds Erica's clothes currounding a circle of lit candles. Soon after, the sheriff calls to tell them that the other tour group was found mutiliated at Coffin Rock, believing Jeff to be the murderer.
That night, Stephen sees Erica through a window dancing around a tree naked like in the footage. She runs across a bridge and he follows, the bridge collapses under him. He narrowly escapes death by grabbing onto a ledge.
