It does what it needed to do very effectively!

"Welcome to Grave Encounters." What a weird movie! Like most of "found footage" movies it started off a little slow, but for some reason the beiging to this one, was actually pretty fun. I felt like I was watching Ghost Adventures. It does take a while for some of the best scares to come your way, but it really builds well, and makes you think "what is around that corner." I will say there are som... read more

I actually was NOT disapointed by this movie. It's not the most original of premises, but it actually manages to deliver (despite story holes and bad acting) more than a few good scares. I only wish the ending would have been better edited.

"I watch this with my friends during the summer and I hated it. This whole movie was a complete waste of the time and ofter nothing new that we haven't seen in any other ghost movie. You are better off watch those ghost related shows on the Syfy channel instead. "

Found-Footage Films: Ranked (25 movies items)

" Smarter, a bit more terrifying, and featuring better characters than your average found-footage experience. I've now seen this twice, and can happily say it stands the test of multiple viewings. Another sweet addition is a nice little twist thrown in for good measure, at about the middle point of the film. Recommended for sure, but I can easily see some viewers complaining about certain miniscule things."

"23.6 Mokkarikauhun suurena ystävän tähä kyllä kolahti todella lujaa. Tunnelmaa saadaa pidettyä yllä oikeastaan koko leffan ajan, kunhan alkupohdistus on saatu tehtyä. Mielisairaala on varsin vaikuttavan näköinen ja hyvä äänimaailma oikeisiin kohtiin lyötynä aiheuttaa varsin kuumottavaa tunnelmaa. Juoni nyt ei ole sinällään ihmeellinen ja arvaakin kyllä mitä seuraavaksi tapahtuu, mutta se ei vaikuta elokuvan tehoon oikeastaan millään tavalla. Näyttelijät tekevät tarpeeks"

"24.4 SD Grave Encountersissa potentiaalia riittää. Siinä se sitten onkin. Ohjaajaveljekset näyttävät ensimmäisen puoliskon aikana osaavansa sulattaa hyvin yhteen mustaa huumoria ja kauhugenrelle ominaista häröä build-upia, mutta sitten kun kummitusjahtaajien tv-show kääntyy kunnon kummittelun puolelle, koko homma lahoaa käsiin aika nopeasti. Haamujen visuaalinen ilme on napattu joko RECistä tai vaihtoehtoisesti Youtuben scary face-videoista, eikä kumpikaan oikein toimi näin va"

" Netflix Instant I've arrived at the opinion that the found-footage gimmick-turned-guarantee of profit has long overstayed its welcome. The horror genre has enough in the way of embarrassing trends to contend with as is. Can we please return to a time when there was a premium placed on professional craftsmanship, writing, character development, and performance? Now sure, there's a financial risk for studios backing a project that actually costs upwards of a million bucks to make. But it's one"

Best Horror movies I've seen (77 movies items)

"This movie is a lot like paranormal activity except to me ten times better! It's based in a psychiatric hospital; you should already know my fear of hospitals.. So, this movie was defiantly a little creepy. Also, it doesn't just wait until the end to creep you right out, half way through your scared and the movie has a pretty good ending as well. A must see!

"Watched: 3/1-2/12 1st Viewing Other Viewings: July (2nd Viewing) Thoughts: The found footage genre=very overused. 'Paranormal Activity', 'REC', 'Cloverfield'. Those are just a few to note. 'Grave Encounters' mixes things up a bit, with a pretty unexpected curveball thrown in towards the middle half or so, which I found to be beneficial. To compare it to the above mentions, just doesn't exactly work, as they are much different. The acting could be a bit better, but for the most part, it is what "

Just as slasher films were done to death in the '80s and '90s, the "found footage" subgenre (made popular by 1999's The Blair Witch Project) is now being exploited to the point of becoming tired. After films like Cloverfield, [Rec], Quarantine, The Last Exorcism, Paranormal Activity, Diary of the Dead and countless other films, it's becoming increasingly difficult to make a fresh-feeling found footage movie, and Grave Encounters is further proof of this. Even though the fine details have been changed, Grave Encounters recycles countless broad strokes from its cinematic cousins. But to be fair, the subgenre is so overdone because, if done right, it works marvello” read more

“"Welcome to Grave Encounters." What a weird movie! Like most of "found footage" movies it started off a little slow, but for some reason the beiging to this one, was actually pretty fun. I felt like I was watching Ghost Adventures. It does take a while for some of the best scares to come your way, but it really builds well, and makes you think "what is around that corner." I will say there are somethings that are not out in front of you, and that you will need to probably rewind and watch again, to catch it. I like how they did Ghost Hunters with some modern horror film and put it into one. The camera wasnt that shacky which I liked, and some of it remined of Blair Witch. The thing I didnt like was the typical horror film acting. The complaining about each other and all that whining crap, ” read more

Movie Journal - September 2011 (30 movies items)

"I was surprised how good this film was. The premise is a mix between ghost hunters & paranormal activity, yet I found this film to do a better job than both of the previous mentioned. It starts off as a parody of "real" ghost tv-shows, and turns into a really scary & gruesome horror film. It has it's flaws, but it's still a very solid horror flick, and it actually made me yell out loud at one part. "
