I reviewed the original 12 Rounds, which starred the WWE’s John Cena way back in 2009 and now, some four years later, the clumsily titled 12 Rounds 2 is set for a straight to DVD release – bypassing the cinematic release the original received – sans Cena, but with fellow WWE superstar Randy Orton in the lead role. And like it’s WWE Studios stable-mate The Marine (which also starred John Cena), this sequel bares no relation to the original film besides the “rounds” format – featuring all new characters, new situations and a new cast.
This time round (groan) Randy Orton stars as paramedic Nick Malloy, who finds himself caught in a deadly 12-round game of cat and mouse with a vigilante tied to the paramedic’s past. With little time to »

The official trailer for the WWE Studios produced film 12 Rounds: Reloaded has arrived, and as usual – you can check it out in the rest of this report. Guess that the only reason we’re (all) actually interested in this so-called explosive thriller is Randy Orton, who stars as paramedic Nick Malloy & will apparently lead us through the ultimate game of cat and mouse. Or something like that… Let me first inform you that Roel Reiné directed the movie from a script written by David Benullo, and that, beside Orton, the pic also stars Brian Markinson, Cindy Busby, Sean Rogerson and Patrick Gilmore. Now,...

The first Grave Encounters won some minor acclaim early last year when released straight to DVD as it went places that Paranormal Activity wouldn’t dare. Here was a film with a set up familiar to anyone who went to the cinema in the hopes of seeing something in the corner of a static video camera.
The advantage was that Grave Encounters actually went and showed you the supernatural force in all its angry, face twisting glory. The result was a genuinely tense ride that was scary amongst so many low-budget found footage cash-ins that clog the shelves. Barely a year later, the sequel is now available and is something of a mixed bag.
The plot gets all Meta for the sequel and oddly reminds one of Human Centipede 2 in a way. Alex (Richard Harmon) is a film student who reviews films on his YouTube channel. His review of the »

Grave Encounters 2, 2012.
Directed by John Poliquin.
Tortured by the ghosts of the demonized insane asylum that killed the crew of Grave Encounters, a group of film students fight to escape death as their own paranormal investigation goes terribly wrong.
Ever since the Paranormal Activity series reinvigorated the found footage genre, there's barely a week goes by without some micro-budget, micro-quality direct-to-video release looking to cash on its success. Typically, these amateurish efforts are marketed towards fans of Paranormal Activity with covers and / or titles designed to evoke the low-budget series (see Parnormal Entity, Paranormal Incident, Supernatural Activity et al). However, if you sift through enough trash, occasionally you're going to stumble upon something worthwhile, and that proved to be the case with The Vicious' Brothers' 2011 found footage chiller Grave Encounters.
