Review from the comment
The original Blair Witch Project is one of my favorite horror films. For someone who has a phobia of the forest, movies just don't get much scarier than that one.
This sequel doesn't do much to honor the classic besides basically telling the same story over again albeit with better cameras and effects. And that is what the problem is. The original Blair Witch was so ingenious both in its utilization of the found footage style and its marketing campaign, you just can't repeat that giving it the big budget treatment.
What you could do though is come up with a clever way to continue the story and sadly, that doesn't happen here. The scares are run of the mill as well and while not a terrible movie, this iteration is merely average.
