Great movie with surprisingly good acting for horror movie.
Michael Borger
The beginning makes it seem like it will suck..give it a few...as they explore the hospital things really SPOOK up...once it starts..it just keeps going until the end.
Allison Rose
A "ghost hunting" squad decides to spend a night in a haunted asylum to find "proof" of the supernatural.

This really is one of my favorite horror movies, period. The opening can seem a bit cheesy, but you'll notice the humor of it all if you've ever watched any paranormal investigation shows, especially Ghost Adventures. The opening montage for the show within the movie is ripped directly from Ghost Adventures and is one of my favorite parts of the movie. The thing I liked best about this movie is that you're never really wondering why the characters are making so many stupid moves. They are genuinely trapped with no way out. They stick together when it's appropriate to do so, and split up when you would probably decide it was best to split up. The acting isn't great and a bit two-dimensional, but I definitely got the vibe that this was done to take a bit of a jab at the investigation shows it's taking a jab at. As things get more tense, the characters gain a bit more depth and, by the end, I can't guarantee that you'll feel connected to the characters, but there's definitely a great chance of that happening. All in all, a great movie but it does walk a line between taking itself seriously and not doing so, so I think you'll get a lot more from it if you don't expect much from it and just look forward to watching a really fun, well-crafted horror film.

Well, to be honest, I was sort of skeptical of this movie. The beginning was a bit corny and cheesy. And the intro of Lance on Grave Encounters show reminded me of Paranormal State intro with Ryan talking. And a lot of the mannerisms Lance has seem to be from Ryan Buell.

Anyway, once you got out of the corniness, the movie really took you into the haunted bowels of the abandoned mental asylum. For the reminder of the time, the movie had me on edge to be honest right to the very end. Not many movies can do that to me but this one did. I highly recommend it for anyone fond of paranormal type movies without the gory, slasher details. Enjoy guys!

GRAVE ENCOUNTERS is the first "video oriented let's pretend it's a real paranormal experience movie" that is truly frightening. Directed by the Vicious Brothers, the film slowly builds reaching a chaotic crescendo. The story follows the typical "dedicated" (to high ratings) film crew of a new hit GHOST HUNTERS-clone TV show called GRAVE ENCOUNTERS who are filming their sixth episode set in a creepy abandoned mental institution. They are locked in until six a.m. The following morning expecting typical paranormal cliches like strange noises or occasional cold spots. Fortunately for the viewer, we get much much more.
What sets GRAVE ENCOUNTERS apart is that the usually annoying jerky camera shots aren't overused and actually heighten the suspense. AND things actually HAPPEN instead of being covertly implied. This movie outshines the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchises or any of television's "reality" paranormal series.
Sean Rogerson (TV's HARPERS ISLAND) is quite effective as Lance Preston, the show's egocentric host.
Stylish and disturbing, GRAVE ENCOUNTERS sets a new standard in this genre's milieu.

When one hears the words "Supernatural", "Horror", and "Found-Footage Film" in the same descriptor they do not prepare for a very exciting movie. By-and-large because of the low budget it costs to film one you're looking at anything between terrible and merely average, few reaching above this. So as a horror fan it was with no small amount of joy that about thirty-minutes into this movie I recognized this wasn't just a good example of how to do a film in the genre, it's THE example. It's the best found-footage film you'll ever watch bar-none and even makes solid headway into the legion of good horror films in general.

The secret? Multiple cameras, decent actors, mostly likable characters, and a distinct style that steps away from enough of the usual horror trappings to be unique.

I won't spoil much of the story and scares to be had beyond what you can see in five-minutes but suffice it to say one of the films strengths comes from its setting, a group of paranormal investigators "investigating". Some people note the beginning of the film as a weakness but I disagree as I felt it built up the characters just enough to care, without being overly long. And at the same time provided the backdrop for giving us the many fixed cameras, and orienting ourselves with who was carrying which mobile camera so that when the action started we aren't confused. Additionally all these cameras mean that we rarely get the "shakey cam" the genre is so well known for. Eventually things go REALLY wrong and this is again to the films unique credit, unlike a movie like Paranormal Activity the bumps in the night only last about ten minutes in this film, then you're treated to a full-on paranormal experience filled with malice and terror.

This movie was really good. I am a horror fan who does not care for general slash and gore movies, it has to have some substance to it. This fit the bill for spooky. The sound track and quality was good, along with the acting. The "Ghost Investigators" bear a striking resemblence to a "Ghost Investigation" team which is currently airing on PBS. So, there was some tongue and cheek humor in it, and I found that amusing. But, for the most part it is a horror movie based on the supernatural and was really scary at times, more so than any other documentary style horror movie that I've seen. If you have small children please be advised that this movie will give them nighmares!
