Grave Encounters (REVIEW)

There's a very simple premise behind "Grave Encounters"… take a group of cynical, fraudulent "Ghost Hunters" shooting a terrible reality show, and throw them into a situation where they actually encounter ghosts.

Unfortunately, "Grave Encounters" does little with it beyond the setup, and even worse, adds nothing to the found footage subgenre it so tirelessly apes.

However, The Vicious Brothers' tackle the found footage concept in a new way with their debut film, "Grave Encounters," by taking inspirations from all of the 'Ghost Hunters' style reality shows that feature a bunch of paranormal investigators who track ghosts in supposedly haunted settings. When I started reading about this film a few months ago, my interest was definitely peaked by all the buzz it was creating.
