    Grave Encounters
    A team of phony paranormal investigators has their skepticism put to the test in this mockumentary-style horror opus. Collingwood is a mental institution in Maryland that has been closed for more than half a century. Local legend had it that the hospital is haunted, and the former caretaker (Bob Rathie) and a number of folks who live nearby claim that they've seen and heard signs of paranormal disturbances in the night. Jerry Hartfeld (Ben Wilkinson) is a television producer specializing in reality shows who arranges for a team of basic cable ghost hunters, led by host Lance Preston (Sean Rogerson), to shoot an episode of their show Grave Encounters at Collingwood. It doesn't take long for Preston and his crew to tip their hands as fakes who are happy to stage phony interviews and set up special effects "disturbances" for the cameras. But they discover Collingwood really is home to forces beyond their understanding, and they're in very real danger as the night wears on. The first feature film from the writing and directing team of Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz (aka The Vicious Brothers), Grave Encounters was an official selection at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Another "found footage" with a budget.


      Grave Encounters takes a different attack at the handy-can style. Where Paranormal constantly builds suspense up until the final climax, Grave Encounters takes a while to start but hits us with a marvelously freaky end 40 min. The problem with going this route is that we have the characters there to watch and learn about for the first hour. Unfortunately if found the characters to be a mixed bag. Some of them I found unbearable, and some I loved(such as the hilarious "psychic" guy". I can easily say that I enjoyed it a lot, but I wish it built more suspense in the beginning. When the "action" starts happening, it is done phenomenally. The atmosphere and especially the sound are incredibly freaky. And it does have it's fair share of jump-scares also. Id definitely check this out if your looking for a believable handy-cam horror movie on close to par with some of the other movies out there. Such as REC and Paranormal 1 & 2. I'd recommend checking out "The Tunnel" also. 3 1/2 stars

      This movie was recommended to me by a friend a few years back. It starts off as a cheesy Ghost Hunting type flick, but once the actual horror starts affecting the characters, it becomes SO GOOD! Highest of recommends!

      I would recommend this movie to any horror fan. It is very interesting and plays like a real documentary, which gives another level of horror to the movie.
