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.

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.

GRAVE ENCOUNTERS II is very much a retread of material from the first film, as a bunch of college students attempt to determine if the mental-hospital ghostly shenanigans captured on film the first time, gulp, actually happened. Rather than a quality found-footage flick, this movie feels more like someone is filming their friends as they walk through an amusement park maze. The film has imagination, but it's not well-acted, yet who cares? It's a diverting scare for a Friday night.

watched the first Grave Encounters well over a year ago, and had the chance to watch it again yesterday. It was just as good as I remembered. Four minutes into watching GE2, and I remember that I watched this one too... But I had turned it off after a few minutes in disgust. This time around, I paid for it, so I had to keep watching. Frat parties, drugs, and sex---three things missing from Grave Encounters that no one missed. "It's a fantastic start to a sequel," I said sarcastically to my laptop screen. It takes eight minutes before anything relevant or interesting happens, as an internet critic of the Grave Encounters movie gets a video reply to his review (yes this is a "meta" movie, insinuating that the first movie was real). It's Lance Preston, the main character from the first film, in a hospital gown and unaware of what's going on, the message sent by someone named "Death Awaits," which happens to be the graffiti written on the door to the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital seen in the first movie. The first act of the movie is just an introduction to characters you quickly learn to hate, with very little happening plot-wise. Things finally start getting on track around the twenty minute mark, but it was tough to last that long listening to the annoying pothead. Every time he opened his mouth I cringed. We get it, you like marijuana and are an annoying idiot. Shut up, shut up, shut up! (Character highlight: later in the movie, he farts so it can be caught on a thermal camera. Huh huh huh, so funny!) Forget the professional attitude of the first film's characters. Here we get loud, immature college students.
I found myself getting interested in the movie around the 40-minute point, when the group of idiots start investigating the asylum.
