The Vicious Brothers much hyped found footage horror, Grave Encounters, finally makes its way to UK shores on 23rd April! The film had its official release in the US late last year, and ever since we poor folk here in the UK have been desperate to see it. The wait is finally over, and Amazon are advertising the DVD at £11.99. You can pre-order it here
The clever haunted asylum found footage horror has had mixed reviews here at HCF. I loved it, although it does go off the rails in the final act, while our resident TV reviewer, Mr Square Eyes himself Ross Hughes, thought differently. You can read my review here and Ross’ review can be found here.
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, slipping deeper and deeper into the depths of madness, ultimately discovering the truth behind the hospital’s dark past…and taping what turns out to be their final episode.
