Grave Encounters 2 movie sceneThe 2012 horror movie Grave Encounters 2 is the inevitable follow-up to the 2011 found-footage fan favorite Grave Encounters.

Two years ago, a film crew traveled to Canada to shoot an episode of the ghost-hunting reality show Grave Encounters inside an abandoned psychiatric hospital. After voluntarily locking themselves inside the building overnight with cameras placed everywhere, they found themselves lost in a labyrinth of endless hallways and terrorized by the ghosts of former patients. The found footage was later released as a feature film, a horror phenomenon that many people believed was just a movie.

In Grave Encounters 2, film student Alex Wright (Richard Harmon, TV’s The Killing) is obsessed with the first film and after receiving a message from a mysterious blogger with the screen name, “Death Awaits 666,” decides to visit the real psychiatric hospital from the original film with his friends. Convinced that the events in Grave Encounters are true, Alex and his friends begin their own paranormal investigation. Yikes…

Written by The Vicious Brothers (as was the original) and directed by John Poliquin, Grave Encounters 2 was released on VOD and digital platforms in October, 2012. The unrated film received only fair reviews from mainstream critics, though the horror press was definitely excited, with describing it as “sick, scary fun” and calling the movie “dark, demented and out of its mind!”

An interview with The Vicious Brothers is included on the Blu-ray and DVD as a bonus feature.
