The brother of the girl who disappeared in 1999’s “The Blair Witch Project” leads an expedition into the woods around Burkittsville, Maryland, seeking an ancient witch who predictably outsmarts this group of young campers.

Director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett don’t try to do much with the “found footage” conceit of the original, which added considerably to the claustrophobic terror of a single girl armed with only her video camera.

Fleeting gore, fleeting rough and crude language. Catholic News Service classification, A-III — adults. Motion Picture Association of America rating, R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
