Rating: 1/5 -- The filmmakers seem unaware that they're beating a dead horse. As the uniformly annoying characters stumble around, screaming and cursing, we don't give a hoot for their survival.
New York Times
True terror needs at least some authenticity. That's perhaps too much to ask of a faked movie about a faked reality show that still can't scare up a fresh idea. Full Review
The pic's creepiness factor is sufficient to rate this a notch above genre average.
Finally, a little self-awareness. Full Review
An uneasy and very entertaining ghost picture. Full Review
3 stars out of 5 -- GRAVE ENCOUNTERS boasts surprisingly solid acting, vertigo-baiting hand-held camera antics and enough [REC]-style shock-horror to keep your pulse throbbing throughout.
Offers some decent scares once you get past the somewhat labored set-up.
Television Without Pity
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.
