Grave Encounters (2011)
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.
Right so really this is sort of the same plot as ‘Atrocious’ but slightly better. We’re introduced quickly to the characters of the TV show that is their ‘final’ one due to, well, this being another ‘found footage’ film.
A lot of the footage is mixed from various cameras that’s installed within the building and catches a lot of spooky noises – especially the night vision shots which are quite cool.
The film touches on EVP and EMF which I thought to be very interesting and piqued my own brain into writing a web series (well it’s I’ve been thinking about it for months).
Arguments start to happen as they can’t seem to find a crew member and with the lights out it get’s very creepy. Never go walking alone in a Mental Institute or you’ll fall on your face – like one member.
It’s actually a good premise for a film but if too many of these come out in the next few months (‘Evidence’ for instance) then the novelty will die very quick, if it hasn’t already.
