Title: Grave Encounters 2 Director: John Poliquin Starring: Richard Harmon, Dylan Playfair, Stephanie Bennett, Leanne Lapp, Howard Lai, Sean Rogerson, Ben Wilkinson Using Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz’s found-footage horror flick “Grave Encounters” as a self-referential leaping-off point, “Grave Encounters 2″ gathers up a head of loose-limbed steam and bundles it up in a rather impressive technical package, but ultimately fumbles it away on a story that buckles under the weight of layered self-consciousness. Film student Alex Wright (Richard Harmon) is one of many folks obsessed with the original “Grave Encounters,” whose YouTube trailer was a viral sensation. Opinions on the movie are wildly divergent, but some people believe it to have  [ Read More ]

The Vicious Brothers Talk Grave Encounters 2 and Their New Project The Visitors

3 October 2012 12:04 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Fans of Grave Encounters are well aware that Grave Encounters 2 (review) is now making its way onto the festival circuit and into their homes via VOD. Recently the creators of the series, The Vicious Brothers, spoke with Dread Central about Grave Encounters 2 and more.

Individually known as Stuart Ortiz and Collin Minihan, the guys preferred all their answers be attributed to The Vicious Brothers as a whole to illustrate their one-mindedness about their work. And it's work they have big hopes for. "We wanted Grave Encounters 2 to be our Aliens to Alien. A lot of people say the sequel is a better film," The Vicious Brothers said. "We think the sequel that we've come up with is twice everything we delivered in the first film."

With the success of the first movie, The Vicious Brothers jumped at the chance to make a sequel. However, initially the idea »

2 October 2012 11:24 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By David Dreher, MoreHorror.com

Today the sequel to a much-overlooked shocker hit VOD. I am talking about Grave Encounters 2 and I am really looking forward to renting it this week and seeing what those crazy Vicious Brothers have come up with this time around.

The dudes over at Dread Central were paying attention and noticed a tweet from Tribeca Films that hint at some horror coolness to anyone following some simple instructions and jumping through a couple hoops. Don’t worry, not gonna put you through all that but what it all leads up to is posted below, a hot little clip that is just plain creepy.

I loved Grave Encounters and don’t understand why more fans didn’t embrace it. It’s available for streaming on Netflix so if you have not yet checked out it, remedy that soon will ya.

New Grave Encounters 2 Image Offers Grave Encounterings in a Dark Hallway

28 June 2012 8:50 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I am not a fan of Found Footage movies. Found Footage horror movies? Man, that’s like adding insult to injury. But I continue to understand why they keep cranking these suckers out. It’s easy, it’s cheap, and most of all, it’s really cheap to make. And the return on investment if you hit the right chord? You can’t get that kind of success with a million-dollar movie. And so, after the success of “Grave Encounters”, the gang is back with a sequel, this one called … “Grave Encounters 2″. Hey, if it worked the first time, right? Here’s the official plot of the sequel (in case you wanted more than just, “Dudes with cameras go look for ghost, finds them, shit happens”): While researching the events depicted in the original film and the subsequent disappearance of its lead ”actor” Sean Rogerson, Alex Wright received a »

Metrodome have announced the UK release of “found footage” horror film Grave Encounters, whose trailer has already been viewed a record 20 million times on YouTube! Directed by The Vicious Brothers, the film stars Sean Rogerson, Merwin Mondesir, Ashleigh Gryzko, Mackenzie Gray, and Juan Riedinger.

Lance Preston and the crew of “Grave Encounters”, a ghost-hunting reality television show, are shooting an episode inside the abandoned Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, where unexplained phenomena has been reported for years.

All in the name of good television, they voluntarily lock themselves inside the building for the night and begin a paranormal investigation, capturing everything on camera. They quickly realize that the building is more than just haunted – it is alive – and it has no intention of ever letting them leave.

They find themselves lost in a labyrinth maze of endless hallways and corridors, terrorized by the ghosts of the former patients. They soon begin to question their own sanity, »
