I want to know what the significance is of Book of Shadows in the title of the movie Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, the sequel to The Blair Witch Project .

I watched the full movie and did not got any hints about what the Book of Shadows is. Maybe I missed some part or it means something else?

I can't find anything definitive, but:

  1. The two main characters are researching the Blair Witch for a book they are writing.
  2. The characters are a Wiccan and a Goth Psychic.
  3. A "Book of Shadows" is a Wiccan text containing spells, rituals, etc.
  4. The television show 'Charmed' was wildly popular at the time and the "Book of Shadows" is a critical element to the show.
  5. The "Book of Shadows" is never mentioned in the movie.

Based on those items, barring anything else definitive, I think the title is tenuous and convenient and has nothing to do with the movie itself.

+1 for points but none of the point directly belongs to movie –  Ankit Sharma May 4 '12 at 10:10
I'm not quite sure what you mean with your comment. The movie does not mention the book at all and so I don't think that there is any real reason for having the title. –  Jacob G May 4 '12 at 13:56
that means you are saying that 'book-of-shadows` in title doesnot have any significance –  Ankit Sharma May 4 '12 at 14:49
Correct. That is what I am saying. There is no significance. –  Jacob G May 4 '12 at 17:13
