Check out the trailer for ‘Grave Encounters’

3 12 2010

You guys seemed to love Chris Imms’ guest blog on Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures—in fact, it’s one of Jess Blogs TV’s top ten most-viewed posts of all time. So, when I learned about the upcoming indie film, Grave Encounters, I figured you’d want to hear about it.

Grave Encounters features creepy “found footage,” in the vein of The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity. In fact, it looks like a cross between those types of movies and the two reality shows Chris wrote about, making it a must-see for me when it comes out. (The release date is currently unknown, but I’ll update if I hear anything.) It’s written and directed by the Vicious Brothers. Here’s a synopsis, provided by producer Shawn Angelski:

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.

Fair warning: A close friend spent the entirety of Paranormal Activity curled up with his head in my lap and his hands over his ears, while I sat there in the theatre completely unfazed. And the following trailer? Totally gave me chills.
