Movie Info

Grave Encounters was a found-footage horror phenomenon that many people believed was just a movie. Film student Alex Wright is out to prove them wrong in Grave Encounters 2. Alex is as obsessed with the first film as the 20 million people who viewed its viral trailer on YouTube. While he and his friends research the events and visit the real psychiatric hospital depicted in the original film, they find themselves face-to-face with unspeakable evil, banking on the hope that their knowledge of the

[Adds] additional layers of self-consciousness to a story that was already pretty derivative.

"Grave Encounters 2" is a miserable affair, a sequel to a movie that drummed up most of its attention online but one that had a few starts and scares along the way.

Gathers up a head of loose-limbed steam and bundles it up in a nice technical package, but then fumbles it away on a story that buckles under the weight of layered self-consciousness.

Basically, Grave Encounters 2 is so far up its own ass it almost disappears.

Grave Encounters 2 disappoints because it cops out to so many current horror clichés and can't seem to come up with anything fresh or original.

Ultimately, Grave Encounters 2 is a much more ambitious and worse off project than the original, opening a Pandora's Box of horror insanity that comes right around and bites the Vicious Brothers where it hurts.

Grave Encounters 2 delivers a sick, intense, and scary white-knuckled spookshow that reveres the groundwork set up by the original and expands upon it on every level.

For the sequel to last year's bland found-footage flick, things have gone all meta. The story here is of a film student who becomes obsessed with the idea that the events of the first film were indeed real. The first half is somewhat interesting as he and his friends investigate this idea but the second half is practically a remake of the first movie. The only entertainment here is in the opening sequence, a montage of Youtube reviews of the first film, not all positive. It has to be said the movie does feature some quite impressive effects work given the low budget.

partly entertaining, if you liked the first you'd still enjoy this one but I found it very average.

I somehow managed to see this film before its full theatrical release this weekend (Ahem. No questions about that please) after the first Grave Encounters. I actually was very impressed with the original film. It was truly horrific. This is the crap that comes after any successful movie. Essentially a repeat of the first film with nothing terribly new or innovative.

    1. Sean Rogerson (Lance Preston): I'm Lance Preston, and welcome to another episode of Grave Encounters. The rest of the cast... is no longer with us!
