Customer Reviews

Don't watch this movie; just watch the first one a second time.

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
While the original used the less is more scare feel, this film just exploited gore which the first film was not even about.

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.

The first thirty minutes of the film introduces the characters as wannabe horror film make Alex Wright (Richard Harmon) goes from movie critic skeptic to believing the first film, "Grave Encounters" is real. He locates the REAL asylum where the movie was filmed and goes there with his own crew to film people with unhinged mouths, tables moving, a girl being dragged across the floor...all the stuff we have seen before in found footage films. I am beginning to believe these things simply appear on cameras if you leave them out too long.

You get tired of seeing Alex's face in the camera running his mouth. The beginning of the movie includes pixelated nudity and immature college pranks. There is a sweet "1408" twist in the middle of the film which makes it almost worth the view, at least that was the part I enjoyed as I didn't see it coming. The filming was done better, if that means anything. I suggest you jump to chapter 6 and start watching to prevent from getting bored. Seasoned horror film watchers might want to take a pass on this one. If you scare easy, go for it.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief obscure video sex, no real nudity.

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.

I am a horror fan. I write horror and film horror movies. I am also a fan of "found footage/reality" horror films.

When I watched Grave Encounters on Netflix I was really surprised about the acting and effects - great stuff!

So when the second was coming out - I had to see it. Bigger budget, better effects.. Win-win right? Wrong! I'm not going to give you the synopsis but I will tell you it takes 50 minutes to get anything scary going and I'm sorry the lead character who plays "the next horror director" is terrible on so many levels. His persona on film is ridiculously bad.

We are treated with a nice twist with 20 minutes left in the film which leads to some gruesome deaths - which was shocking and really well done but all in all it's not enough to save this movie.

Save your money and time. Watch the first one and forget this one ever came out.

UGH. This film, like the original, is a representative example of the flood of utterly terrible c-movie found footage micro- and low-budget films that have flooded Amazon Instant Video in recent years. The only moment of this video I found entertaining was found in the first five minutes when Internet "reviewers" provided their opinions, a couple of which matched my own. That the DVD artwork features the most overused cliche in modern CGI horror ("stretchyface demonmouth") should have warned me as to what I should expect. Sadly, I didn't heed the warning.
