Shadow of the Blair Witch is a mockumentary directed by Ben Rock and was released on the Sci-Fi Channel in conjunction with the release of Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 in October 22, 2000.
The mockumentary focuses on the murder-spree that occurred following the theatrical release of The Blair Witch Project. The events of Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 are presented as a film adaptation based on the "Black Hills murders" that took place shortly after the events of The Blair Witch Project. Shadow of the Blair Witch examines the troubled life of "the real Jeff Patterson" and his obsession with The Blair Witch Project, and his legal defense team as the case prepares for trial and as the public reacts to plans to fictionalize the case's events for the big screen. Protests of the film Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 are discussed coming from both the families of those involved with the case and from the Wiccan community as a whole.
