Grave Encounters (2011)

30 December 2011 2:46 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed and Written by: The Vicious Brothers

Cast: Sean Rogerson, Juan Riedinger, Ashleigh Gryzko, Mackenzie Gray, Merwin Mondesir

These days, it seems like you can't flip on the TV without seeing one of the "reality" shows about paranormal investigations; what started out as a relatively underground hobby that very few people took seriously has blossomed into a full-scale cultural phenomenon.

From the cheesy, scripted introductions to the predictable "oh my god, what was that?!" shrieks after every innocent sound, these shows provide both entertainment and sources of eye-rolling for audiences everywhere. For my part, I do believe in the afterlife, but I also don't think that most spirits are hanging around waiting to ham it up the minute a TV crew arrives.

The movie Grave Encounters has a pretty neat premise, all things considered. It's the tried-and-true formula of found-footage film but set within the boundaries of one of these paranormal research cable shows. »

Grave Encounters and Stumbling Through a Paranormal Realm: A Movie Review and Preview

21 August 2011 5:52 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director/writer: The Vicious Brothers.

Cast: Sean Rogerson, Juan Riedinger, and Ashleigh Gryzko.

*this title is scheduled to arrive on VOD / iTunes on Aug 25, 2011 and will be released on DVD, October 18, 2011.

The paranormal reality television genre has finally reached a point in where it can be grimly parodied. In the heights that this medium has reached, it is about time that these ghost hunters are getting a stab of the thorn. Grave Encounters gives a fictional group of ghost adventurers, lead by Lance Preston (Sean Rogerson), their just deserts. It is not wise to go adventuring into territory in where they will not be welcomed.

When they investigate Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, the fate that Preston and his team end up in can best be described as taking the Kobayashi Maru test from “Star Trek II: Wrath of Kahn.” What they encounter tests both their character and resilience in a situation »

"They were searching for proof... They found it." Official artwork for Grave Encounters.

If you’ve seen Session 9, you know that indie horror movies about abandoned lunatic asylums can be pretty damn creepy. Today we got the trailer for Grave Encounters, another film in this sub-genre that could soon be doing the rounds. From what we’ve seen, it could be another screamer. You can judge for yourself by checking out the trailer below, courtesy of Tribeca Film.

Grave Encounters is about the crew of a paranormal investigation reality television show, à la Syfy’s Ghost Hunters, that decides to lock themselves inside the disused Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital for an episode of their show.

As they go about filming their investigation of the unexplained phenomena that have been reported there over the years they find that the building seems »

Tribeca '11 Review: 'Grave Encounters' Carbon Copy Horror

16 May 2011 11:34 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Taking cues from films like Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project comes a new cinema verite ghost flick, Grave Encounters, which comes from directors simply known as "The Vicious Brothers". Starring Sean Rogerson, Merwin Mondesir, Ashleigh Gryzko, Mackenzie Gray and Juan Riedinge, the pic premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, here's what Johnn Marrone had to say: "The cinema verite horror pic is the latest in a tidal wave of mockumentary films that bites off so many of the "new wave" styles that unfortunately, as fun as it is at times, ends up feeling a bit more like a faded carbon copy of that which we have seen so often before."

Grave Encounters | Review - Tribeca Film Festival 2011

2 May 2011 6:24 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Directors: The Vicious Brothers Writers: The Vicious Brothers Starring: Sean Rogerson, Ashleigh Gryzko, Merwin Mondesir, Mackenzie Gray, Juan Riedinger The last thing this world needs now is another found footage horror film; but, nonetheless, writers-directors The Vicious Brothers (Colin Vicious and Stuart Vicious) have thrown their hat into the ring with Grave Encounters. The film starts as a reality television producer (Ben Wilkinson) tells us the story of the unaired footage of episode six from the ghost-hunting TV series Grave Encounters. The producer gets all choked up as he talks about the unearthed 76-hours of raw miniDV footage shot by the Grave Encounters crew. Thankfully, we do not have to watch all of the raw footage; someone has done us the courtesy of editing it down to a manageable, 85-minute or so "rough cut." And here we are, within the (presumably) raw footage, in front of Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital. This »
