Customer Reviews

While the original used the less is more scare feel, this film just exploited gore which the first film was not even about.
Alan Poe
Actually, I don't get scared during movies, so let me correct that by saying the first one was pretty boring with no cool or fun scenes.
Micheal Hunt
I don't think I can even give this film an A for effort since it seems like so little effort went into making this a good picture.

I've been a horror movie buff my entire life, or at least since the time my parents let me watch horror movies. Or rather, since I learned that I could quietly sneak to the top of the steps and see the TV undetected while my older brother and his friends watched horror films. Of all the found footage horror movies I have seen, the first Grave Encounters stands as one of the most impressively creepy films in its sub genre and possibly the genre as a whole. So I was pretty interested and excited to see what the second film could dish out. I went in not knowing anything about the film and in some ways was pleasantly surprised.

For a film that leaves relatively no room for an original and fresh sequel, the premise of this movie was actually pretty brilliant and well-written. The first two thirds of the film seemed to be riddled with scenes and footage that probably should have been left for the DVD extras. However the Vicious Brothers did a good job of taking the viewer on a ride as the plot reveals itself. I was hooked in by the characters quest to unmask the truth behind the original movie. And once they manage to make it to Collingwood to perform their own night-vision camera investigation, the movie has its fair share of jump-out-of-your-seat moments.

I think the films mistake came at the exact point where a new character is introduced the storyline. No spoilers here, I won't tell you who. But it's at that point that everything that made the first film so terrifying goes out the window and a whole new element is introduced with over-the-top effects and twists and turns that left me just staring at the screen wondering what was happening. Some scenes that should have had my heart pounding were so ridiculous I almost wanted to laugh.

After watching Grave Encounters on netflix, I was amazed on how scary the film was. Right after watching the film I read that Grave Encounters 2 had just released on Amazon Video and like a newly found fan I had to see it, only in the end of this film I came out sorely disappointed. The establishment of the characters leading to the hospital was severely long, the hospital scenes were cut off short when the original film had the long tension of the haunting, and the abysmal 3rd act with the "twist" of bringing back people was downright insulting to the realness feel of the original. While the original used the less is more scare feel, this film just exploited gore which the first film was not even about. While the first film was completely psychological horror, this one was just trying to be a mainstream horror fest that in the end should not have been in the first place. The only plus of this film was seeing a Peter Chao cameo and even that cameo threw off my immersion of watching the film. For now just stick with watching Grave Encounters 1 and pretend that this film was never made.

If you loved The Vicious Brothers and their film "Grave Encounters," they're hoping you'll flock to buy the next chapter of their horror saga creatively titled "Grave Encounters 2." Utilizing the increasingly popular "found footage" genre that combines elements of the thriller into a faux documentary presentation, "Grave Encounters" was a reasonably effective (if not spectacularly original) entry into the horror arena. It does seem that every low budget scary movie of late thinks that this is the go-to genre of filmmaking, so it's becoming more difficult to distinguish inventive works from the overcrowded pack. This sequel employs the same device to carry out the story. And it is just so tired already! But as long as the movie has something fresh to offer, found footage can still make for a thrilling visceral experience. I may not have hated "Grave Encounters 2" as much as some--but after a reasonably promising set-up, the film seemed to implode on itself with a lunatic (and ill conceived) final act.

The movie takes place roughly two years after the events of the first movie. A film student (Richard Harmon) is obsessed with the footage of the first film and decides to see if the events depicted were real or not. As any remarkably sane person would do, he assembles some friends to break into the psychiatric hospital represented two years prior. Even if everything is real (which he believes), his knowledge of the place and its monsters should provide plenty of clues for survival. There isn't much more to tell without revealing spoilers. I'll just say that the introduction (which takes a VERY LONG time) is handled well enough, but a major twist in the hospital kind of derails the franchise.

Let me start out by saying I am a big fan of "Grave Encounters." Yes it had flaws but I loved the charm of the indie film. This film is the exact opposite, stay away at all cost, if you are a fan of GE you might me tempted much like I was but please keep expectations low.

This followup to the first movie is terrible. If one could cut out the first 45 minutes and give the cast some acting lessons perhaps it would of gotten 3 stars. A real disappointment. Even with Sean Rogerson it could be redeemed.
