Grave Encounters. He soon becomes obsessed with tracking down the actors, producers, etc. from the first film. And he inevitably finds the story he's looking for...Grave Encounters is "real" found footage.
Despite getting the full scoop from the producer, Alex is determined to get proof and make the next documentary/horror flick of the century. So he convinces his friends and teen film crew to head to Canada and investigate the mental hospital (setting of the original film). Lets analyze that for a moment: he believes that the original film crew all died and a massive coverup followed, so the solution is...put themselves in the exact same situation as the missing and probably dead crew. Genius indeed.
When a Rent-a-Cop breaks up the party, he tells the scared teens to "wait right here". Classic. As the security guard goes upstairs to check on the noises, gunshots are heard and then...nothing. The teens go to investigate and quickly realize they're screwed. The best part is they're allowed just enough hope, but not too much.
|"Wait Right Here" almost as bad as "I'll be Right Back"|
PS During a pivotal point in the film our TV turned off. It happens sometimes, but hubs and I both laughed about it. I proposed making GE3. Hubs was not amused.
What do you think of the found footage or documentary-style horror?
